    Hi pkn

    It's the fibro unfortunately. I have had it for over 20yrs, it's more so in my hands and every day is a new day.

    Gentle hugs x

    Hi, pkn:  Yes, I have had it for many years, but it got much worse after I took a very hard fall three years ago.  I am embarrased to walk from my car to a store because i always look like I'm drunk, when I've never taken a drink in my life.  Fibro is just about the most horrible thing we can have because it is ongoing...I have flare ups where I can't even get out of bed...I hope you and everyone on this board has a wonderful day...gentle hugs.

      You are certainly not alone pkn...we all suffer the pain and muscle spasms/cramps...and Fibro fog...Read up on Amithriptilyne ... I have taken it at night 2 hours before bed for 16 years 25mg.(never been increased). It.blocks the pain at the nerve end and I get a great night sleep..be blessed pkn..don't be afaid to try other meds..it took me 6 yrs to get on the right one and that's the only med from the doc I take...have a lovely day..:-) xxx
