Hey guys! Most of you won't know me, but I have a nagging question that I haven't been able to find anything about through research... I haven't been formally diagnosed with fibromyalgia on account of my work cutting my health benefits...however, except for a bone marrow test they had already excluded everything else and were pretty certain I have fibro. I had started seeing a rheumatologist, but obviously I can't now... I rarely take painkillers. No matter how bad my pain gets I just deal with it...I was like this even before the fibro. I've taken NSAIDs maybe a total of 50 times in my whole life. Since the fibro I've been way more sensitive to just about everything. I'm suddenly alergic to cardboard and a whole host of other things. I can't tolerate alcohol or high levels of caffine anymore either. My primary concern is the ibuprofen. My pain got so bad a couple of times that I took half a standard advil. It kicked in in about fifteen minutes. I was laughing histarically for no apparent reason, was light headed and couldn't walk very well. About fifteen minutes of laughter turned into another fifteen minutes of uncontrolable sobbing. After that I was fine. The total ordeal was half an hour and ended as suddenly as it started. I've had the same reaction to generic ibuprofen. Are psychotic side effects to NSAID's common with fibro or is there something else going on?? I mentioned this to my neuro and he seemed more concerned about other symptoms I had brought up and I never got a chance to get answers. Anyone have any ideas?
