Saw Rheumy again today

Was in just this past Friday to see him but called & talked to his nurse yesterday in tears & he wanted to see me right away. He finally listened, completely. I told him again that the Robaxin was not helping with the pain pain just the muscle cramps nor the sleep, which oops, we both forgot about until now because the pain was the main issue. (Guess I'll have to call back over there, again). Anyway, I mentioned the Neurontin he used to have me on a few years ago so he put me back on it again at he said starting out a fairly higher dose than he likes to but under the circumstances he felt he needed to. He told me to maybe take it in intervals because it may make me sleepy, like break the pills in 1/4's. He's either starting me on 600mg or 800mg I can't remember. Still waiting on the pharmacy to fill it. I sure hope this will give me some relief & ultimately some peace too!! Just needed to tell someone about this as I feel a little hope. Thanks and here's wishing everyone a Happy Turkey Day!!

I was diagnosed over 2 years ago. I lost my job because of fibro. I am currently on Neurontin, zoloft, xanax, ambien for sleep, which if you have fibro, it doesn't matter, the pain keeps you awake Some days it hurts just to wlk. I have to lay down frequently due to fatigue. Don't think it will ever get better. I have been told to see a Neurologist, as they deal with this more than the G.P.
