Concerning Fibromyalgia

For whatever it's worth, I suffered from severe body pain and fatigue for three years. Sometimes simply touching my arms or legs was painful. My sleep was disrupted and I never, ever felt good. After seeing several specialists I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Even my daughter,who is a Nurse Practitioner, told me "There is no such thing, it is emotional"! I was devastated. I played semi-pro football, skydived, and worked undercover narcotics. I can take pain, I can't take rejection, and that is what I felt when my symptoms fell on deaf ears. I was treated with all kinds of medications, several were anti-depressants, and to no avail. Then my doctor prescribed Savella. Within five days my pain began to subside and I have been 95 % pain free since. I can get in and out of a chair without doubling over. It's been six months now.
