hey all, just wanted to thank everyone that has posted because all of them have made me see im not crazy or alone. I was diagnosed with fm after an auto accident two yrs ago and slowly its getting worse. im overweight so the first thing people think is "if she would excercise and or lose weight she would feel better". well that may be so but i have to not be in extreme pain in order to excercise! I do use my gazelle about three times a week if im not in to much pain. but some days i get sooo down. i am on cymbalta now and it helps, use lortab and flexeril to sleep, but now just tylenol arthritis does not do to good for daytime. still working and not ready to stop yet. im only 48 and if i can tough it out for seven more yrs i can retire. I have about three or four days a month where with pain and the fog i have to give in and go home to crash!
