semi-newbie feeling depressed and crazy, looking for support and any help/ideas...

dutchiepuppies - March 27

I'm 27 and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 2 years ago. Because I have a mild form of epilepsy (fully controlled so not an issue) I cannot take lyrica or neurontin, and had serious side effects to savella and cymbalta as well. I am starting to feel crazy at the thought that my whole life is going to be pain. I used to have long stretches between flare ups (month or several months) but now it is a couple times a month at minimum for several days each time. I work with Dutch Shepherds and have a 5 yr old daughter, I used to be a competitive athlete....now I have to be careful about how often I empty the dishwasher and half the time can't go up the stairs in my home. I have a high pain tolerance but this pain is so extreme, I have to find something that helps, or at least try something. I'm so tired of feeling trapped in my own body! I don't know anyone who has fibromyalgia and its hard for those around me to understand even though they are extremely supportive and helpful. I just feel at the end of my rope right now!

Anyone have anything they've found works for the pain?

I see this post was in March,I hope you find comfort that I relate to frustrations on finding relief & treating other conditions on top of Fibro.I'm 47,have a 6 yrs. old daughter trying to keep it together when around her.Used to have seizures it went away so one down a few to go.I am still learning to simplify my daily activities hard to do but theres proggress not as much in pain but it still there.Grieving on how I used to be to now limited, a process that I don't like.I wish you recovery & understanding.....
