Ok that makes sense, Im glad they ruled out Lyme too because that can be nasty if its not treated. so I seen the specialist today and he did the 18 point test on me, and disgnosed me with fibromyalgia.. He gave me 300mg of Gapapentin, Ironic! I researched the med to death before taking my first dose tonight. There is actually some good reviews on it but I've heard lyrica is not very good. It is also used for arthritis. Its good youre off of it. I had a similar terrible experience with effexor. I am so happy to be away from that stuff! Im trying to process my diagnosis. I thought maybe surgery could fix my arthritis and Id be ok but now I have something else chronic. I cried most of the day today.
