The Fibro Diaries: December 12

After a visit to my rheumatologist this morning, I am finally able to wean myself off the Lyrica. It has been giving me constant nausea, and I have been having increasingly bad asthma attacks and chest pain on this medication. Though I was willing to accept the severe side effects if the pain subsided, the pain has done nothing but increase steadily over the last few months.
After going off this medication, I will be trying Cessamet, a synthetic THC derivative. Some Fibromites have has success with it, and I hope to add to that number.
I am still unable to work, and my exams dates draw ever closer, so I need relief as soon as possible.
My prayers go out to everyone who have this disease, and hopefully we will have a cure soon.
Keep checking back, as I intend to start a new blog on Gluten free and Low Allergy cooking as soon as possible. I'll post the links as soon as it's up.
Happy Christmas!

The Fibro Diaries: December 5

Well, the last three weeks have been really difficult. My pain is getting worse everyday and my medications aren't working at all. My doctor gave me a new one to try, but a few hours after taking it, I started getting really itchy and broke out in a mild rash - no more Tramadol for me. It wasn't working anyway - only making me really sick and spacey.
I don't know where to go from here. I don't know what I can take for pain that isn't going to make me too spacey to study or work. All I want to do is sleep.
I am getting really stressed at this point. I have exams in less than two weeks, and I haven't been able to work now for two weeks. I am broke, I am hurting, I am sick, I am in need of major prayers.
I am in need of a clean house! Ok, maybe I can fix that one......
Bathroom first!
