    I went to my Rheumy doctor appt. today. She is amazing... She spent a lot of time going over medical history, examined me and then we talked. She's very understanding and really listened. She put me on Pamelor and Cymbalta (spelling?) She told me to feel free to call if I am still having any pain and wants me to come back in four weeks.

    She's expensive since she isn't on our medical plan but after all the awful specialists that I've seen the past several years, I think it will be well worth it to continue her treatment plan.

    I am so relieved and here's to hoping she can get my pain under control. I don't have a lot of hope that the pain will ever go away completely but I do hope that I will get it down to a level that I can deal with.

    Cymbalta helps me with the pain a lot. Don't know about Pamelor, but if it works for sleep let me know, OK?
    I hope you get some relief. LOL, Nanna

    I will let you know how the meds work out. I've heard a lot about Cymbalta from others. It really seems to be helpful with pain (so they say...) I took Pamelor about four years ago before I was dd with FM. It helped me sleep at night and also helped with the depression that goes along with FM. I didn't have to beg. She said that she will adjust the meds in 4 weeks plus talk about adding more to my treatment plan (physical therapy for one)... It's been a long time since I've actually felt hopeful. Thanks for you're support.
