Thank you all for your information-you are wonderful! As for my anxiety, I have tried Effexor and Paxil, which made me feel so much worse, and also xanax and klonopin that put me in la la land, and I forget most of the day after I take it. I am really not a worrier. I think I was having hypoglycemic attacks at first and went years without knowing it, so that messed me up. I do feel better when I stick to a low carb, high protein diet, but fell off that wagon over the holidays!! Probably why I have felt terrible lately..... My doctor prescribed Lexapro and trileptol- a form of Lyrica but less harmful in his opinion. In the past, I have tried to manage pain with ibuprofen and hot baths. I felt good over the summer, maybe because we spend alot of time on the water and I can swim and float. I am also seeing a homeopath who knows about fibro, and is working with remedies and supplements for me. She has not helped much with my anxiety though. I still do not drive very far. She will not be happy when she hears of my diet as she also helps me nutritionally. Does anyone know the difference between the Lexapro and something like Effexor? I had so much trouble being on that, and then getting off was such a nightmare, I don't want to go through that again!! Thanks again so much, it's good to know I am not alone. Friends and family have been supportive, it's taken almost 6 years, but it's not the same as having people know exactly what you mean when you describe a symptom!
