Serious Side Effects Put Me MIA

Hello? Anyone out there? haha.

I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in so long… I mean I have never been good at making many posts but I use to do one at least once a month. 

Honestly, I went through a dark period.  I have gotten depressed before but I’m not clinically depressed so usually I would get depressed for a day or two due to having lots of pain that day or maybe just being worn out from the pain. However, this was going on for waaayyy to long. Plus, I’m resilient… pain sucks but if I still can function I will push through it to do the things I like so I knew this was not normal.

One day I did something with a 20 dollar bill and I couldn’t, for the life of me, remember what. I tried hard to remember, but the things I could think of didn’t seem very realistic. It was more like a dream feeling… did that really happen? That scared me!

Then it dawned on me… the lyrica!

So yeah, once I lowered the dose of the lyrica I started to feel better. The lyrica was making me want to do nothing but sleep and eat so I’m really not happy with my weight right now.

The sad thing is it didn’t stop my pain. I actually ended up with a horrible flare that went on for three weeks.

Welcome to Hell

Ops went a whole month with no update. 

Well, I have good reason. It has been kind of rough these past few weeks. The lumbar puncture I went through put me out of commission for almost two weeks. The puncture itself wasn’t so bad but the after effect was horrible. I’ve had bad headaches before but nothing like what this lumbar puncture gave me.

The good news is I have no current inflammation going on in my spinal fluid. So that means no MS yay! Thank the lord, that made me nervous. Bad news to all this means I’m still a fibromyalgia patient with no real answers as to why I’m in so much pain and no good way to treat it.
