Hi All! I haven't been on the message boards in some time. I had gone a very long time without a flare up but for the past 10 days or so I have felt pretty awful. My fibro has been very mild and I am not on meds (thought I have Lyrica in my medicine cabinet) but I think I might be getting to the point where I need to take them. I am dizzy and for the first time I think I am having "fibro fog". I have to work to concentrate. I am having shortness of breath and chest discomfort and visited the cardiologist today to rule out heart things (I do have some heart issues). Also lots of twitching in my hands, feet and eyes. So . . . I have a few question . . . 1. If you are on Lyrica, how did you tolerate it when you first started taking it? 2. Do you find it hard to explain to people how you feel? I am not really in "pain". . . it is more of an uneasy discomfort. In trying to explain how my face was feeling the other day, I told a friend "It feels like I have been chewing an entire pack of bubble gum for 24 hours straight . . . just tired." 3. How do you keep from worrying that there is something other than fibromyalgia causing your symptoms? Because I can go for months feeling fine before being hit with a flare, and because each flare it a little different, I always worry it isn't the fibro but something else. 4. Anyone been successful with vitamins? Thanks for taking the time to help me.
