I have been diagnosed with Fibro for a little over a year. Several docs later I am now taking 4 meds and still in a great deal of pain. Not only am I still in pain I have NO ONE to talk to NO ONE who will help and NO ONE who is willing to try to understand. Not only am I am dealing with that, but now my husband tells me I look like I am on drugs all the time. I am exhausted all the time, but still working full time, plus taking care of the house, the kids, cooking and cleaning.

I am starting think I was better off not taking the meds and just dealing with the pain....

Any suggestions on what I should do?

I have had Fibro for 16 years. I understand how hard this must be for you. My kids were grown up by the time I was told I had this. I would recommend going to www.love.com and buy a relaxation tape...it is the one that you tighten and relax muscle from head to toe. You have to use this tape everyday and it may take a week or so before you notice how you can really relax and then a while before you start feeling better. Also, another thing that really helps is warm water exercise in a pool. When you are in the water you can exercise without much pain because the water supports the weight of you muscles while you are moving...this is so important because I find is you have to keep moving with Fibro or will not be able to move. Best of Luck to you....
