Does this ever get better? Since I got sick with fibro, i've gained over 10 lbs, probably because of the cymbalta, I've basically had to temporarily drop out of school, and i'll probably have to take another year as a senior The school decided i'm to wait until next year to take MCAS, And at the same time they're pressuring me to get better. They don't seem to understand I can't INFLUENCE this illness, And this retired headache specialist has been talking to my mom, and they're driving me INSANE because this woman apparently thinks the ONLY reason i cannot go outside with a migraine is because i THINK i'm going to feel sick when i do. really, if i wanted to ruin my life by basically dropping out of school, this would NOT be how i'd do it. everyones treating me like a hypochondriac, my mom doesn't even believe half the time i'm actually sick, even though SHE'S BEEN THROUGH FIBRO. i'm extremely jealous of her, she can go out and do whatever she want, now. and my friends don't understand, try as they might, why i can't ever do anything anymore. it's hard enough to battle the fatigue when i'm NOT going through amigraine cycle, but i've had this migraine for almost a month and i seriously don't know if i can take it anymore! i haven't seen any friends since i got this migraine, i just don't want to be pitied anymore. and now that i have a migraine that won't go away no matter what...all the triptans don't even TOUCH it. all the meds i've tried don't help. i kindof want to go to the hospital and beg them for the strongest painkiller they have, but judging by how they FORGOT about me last time and i had to sit there for five hours, half asleep from the benadril and compazine, i don't really want to do it again. i think i would be okay, and i could accept this illness if i just didn't have migraines...but nothings helping. and i'm about ready to give up. everythings jsut falling apart, mostly from the migraine. i could get used to this, to not going into big stores anymore or malls where i have to walk too much..i wouldn't have trouble adjusting to that. but i can't take these migraines, and everyone tells me, 'hang in there, it'll get better" and i keep WAITING for this migraine to let up, and it won't. and i don't want to be one of those people that have migraines for years on end...this migraines too severe, it won't let up for anything. and i've tried going to my therapist but i end up almost throwing up twenty minutes after i get there, and the only reason i can get to my doctor is because i still hope they'll find a way to get rid of this. at this point, it's a lose-lose situation. i'd be willing to try anything to get rid of it, but at the same time i'm SO scared of trying another med...i tend to have HORRIBLE reactions to all of them. i was sick in bed from topamax, and i dont' know anyone who's had a bad reaction to that. compared to the migraine cycles, the fibro is nothing. this is only the second one i've had and it's lasted about a month. if i could just get rid of it...i think i could keep from starting another. but it won't go away. this is agonizing...i don't want to do it anymore.
