I have only been diagnosed for about 4 years, but I have had serious weight gain and I take gabapentin. I have severe clinical depression. It never seems to get any easier. The depression and pain is just sometimes unbearable....Some days I pray for it to just be over. I have an incurable heart condition also and am on multiple meds for that and I think they interfere with the treatments I have tried for fibro....I have very few good days and my life use to be wonderful.....
