I havent posted before, but I cant resist. Im so frustrated reading all these posts. The dr.s are using us as gineau pigs. The practically admit it. They do not know what causes fms/cfs or how to remiss it. They treat each individual symptom with another drug. As you all know...the list of symptoms we have is endless. (which means the drugs we are given are endless). Ive had my share of Dr. feelgoods. You know, the doc that will basically keep giving you drugs til you "get the right combo". Its inhumane. The fail to tell you that you will become dependant on meds regardless if they help you much or not. Most ssris, sleep meds, pain meds, ect will give you some withdrawel regardless of weining off.(It took me over a year to wein still with months of withdrawals). Then theres the miracle supplements and potions. Another crock of bull. If there were a MIRACLE for fms/cfs, the drug companies would gobble it up in a second. We would all have access to it, for a fee (of course). On a lighter note, I do beleive in healthy ways. Also, meds if absolutely necessary. And some alternative docs and therapies. I hate to sound like such a downer. But I think the more we accept this is chronic, and with no cure (for now), the better off and less financially strained we will be. Now, take care of yourselves. Take your vitamins, eat right, exersize, and rest. Im off all meds, and I certainly do not feel any worse. Maybe even a bit better without all the side effects. I do take some advil when needed and herbal stuff for sleep. I hope I save atleast one person the financial, emotional, and pysical HELL I went though. I spent too much time and emotion looking for that miracle cure.
