I am new to this board. I have spent the last 7 years being treated for MS, but when my doc didn't seem to get a handle on the pain and fatigue issue I sought another opinion. This MS specialist said that I DO NOT have MS but more than likely a combo of CFS and FM and took me off of my Neurontin and Baclofen because of the of sedative side effects. I haven't slept for more than an hour at a time or more than three hours a night in a week and a half. I can't get in with a Rheumatologist until the 26th and I am MISERABLE!! I am so stiff I can barely get out of bed in the AM andI have a high degree of widespread pain. The only thing keeping me awake is the Provigil. Do any of you CFS/FM veterans have any suggestions to get thourgh the next couple of weeks without medications? I have been doing alot of homework on these syndromes but I can't seem to get any concrete ideas on pain mgm't without meds and I am ready to lose it. That is if my family doesn't toss my crabby butt out the door Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
