Since I have been little I have always had pain threw out my body only since January of this year has it gotten worse starting with crazy migraines the pain all threw out my joints some days its my elbows and wrists, ankles and knees, hips and pelvic joinys, fingers and neck basically it likes to move all around my body whenever it wants, rainy days its excruciating, hot summer days the fatigue kicks in and the pain is unbearable, basically the only time I don't feel pain is when I am alseep and getting to sleep is a tough one in it self, "My history" my mother had lupus and when I was in womb at her age of 30 she just found out that she had it and the doctors where pumping her full of trial and error medication basically a lot of different nasty medications, the doctors then said you need to abort your child, Me! She of course said no way to that because both of us would have died, so I have inherited basically everything she had and a bunch of other illnesses she didn't, GERD, bilateral plantar fasciitus, bilateral pes-cavus, asthma, depression and all that comes with that, fibromyalgia & possibly Lupus, she was a trooper and what she calls a lab rat being poked and podded by hundreds of doctors their needles and treatments she finnaly had enough and decided to stop treatment in 2003 she passed a month later,,,:(
At 35 years of age I have more things wrong with me than she did first finding out she had Lupus the pain from my recent FM diagnosis has gotten worse each month, i tried 4 medications so far, Sevella, Gabapentin, Lyrica & Tramadol for pain all of which have not worked and or had to go to the ER because of side effects, i use medicinal marijuana for pain and most of the time that doesn't even help, my doctor wants to try Cymbalta but is afraid I may get in a manic eppisode for i no longer take phsyc meds and have overcome having to rely on them for the depression and anxiety. My mothers side of the family has ostricised me and they really dont even know who I am and only hear about the bad things i have struggled with in life from my selfish and disrespecful brother and even now my father and brother think they have an idea of the pain and fatiuge i constatly go threw but actually have no clue, so i really have no support in my life and not sure what to do with all that is going on, for I have exasperated just about every option, guide me, help point me in the rite direction.
