although I'm relatively certain I've been having symptoms of FM for a long time, it has just recently kicked in hard enough to have finally been diagnosed. I have no way of knowing for sure, being new to all this, but a car accident I experienced last spring seems to have been the catalyst. Trazadone works well for me to help me sleep, but I've been on Celebrex and Vioxx for the pain and stiffness, and now I'm starting in on Bextra. I've always been very active and this recurring exhaustion and pain is terribly frustrating. Will there be a light at the end of my tunnel? I'm afraid I'm going to keep racing through all available medication and be left without help. I am very lucky to have a supportive husband and daughter behind me, but I detest feeling so fragile. I'd like to hear some positive input from fellow sufferers!
