Thank you so much for this thread! I will definately be looking into this as I am a long time FM sufferer as well. Mine was just a 'minor
inconvenience' if you will, for the first 8 or so years after being diagnosed. I was working in a stressful field with long hours and would somehow
push thru it....until one day I just couldn't.
I have been unable to work now for 6 years as the widespread pain and terrible migraines, as well as heavy fibro fog took it's toll on me. I'd get
in my car and forget how to turn the wipers on....get turned around and confused in my own city. It's been awful.
Over the years I've tried a lot of different things from massage therapy, light therapy, high doses of a bevy of vitamins and nutrients, to scarey
amounts of guifenesin [sp?] daily, ....and finally now am on 1200 mg - 1600 mg of lyrica a day. Well, prescribed that much anyway, plus a ton of other
meds all to treat my fibro.
I hate it. I hate that lyrica makes me feel as tho I'm stoned or drunk, but it helps my pain. I'm just not convinced if it's the meds or the being
too stoned to KNOW I'm hurting which could be the case as well. So I take just enough to help with the pain and more if I need it. I enjoy
functioning without my world spinning. Call me crazy.
And that vid that another poster put up, sry, cant see the name from this screen... I was going to a neurologist years ago, in the early days of my FM
that use to do that exact same procedure on me. He said it should help with my migraines. Sadly he left the area before I could see if it was much
help but it felt amazing while he was doing it.
I'll be checking into this and watching this thread as well. Again, thank you so much for the info! Fibro is an awful thing and very difficult to
deal with. S & F
