    It could be as simple as a medication reaction.

    My daughter and a close friend of my niece experienced alot of what you just wrote. I myself have FM...but they did not. The symptoms were so close to MS that a diagnosis was forthcoming for Jen. A very smart doctor that did not give up, especially on two 20 something young women. There was a correlation of symptoms and a certain birth control t in her patients. She had them remove the Mirena IUD and after a month or so the symptoms subsided. Check with your gynecologist on the rare side effects....

    CHRONIC PAIN SUCKS

    I am a husband living with someone with Fibromyalgia, arthritis, etc. Having to help her roll over and get out of bed, make sure I do all the lifting and bending around the house. The numerous doctor appointments and medications (take one for pain in morning, one in the afternoon, another at night, and Tylenol in between just to get through the day.) and needles across and up her back. Even tried cannabis oils and felt sick to her stomach and light headed so had to stop that also. Was told the arthritis....

    Is this all fibromyalgia

    I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia maybe 8 yrs ago. The dr tested my tender points and dx came immediately. I was hurting but things were not that bad. I was still moving. I was nearing 60, am fat but still able to move. Was doing farm chores, lifting hay bales, 50# bags of feed and walking a mile 3x a week. Then things started going down hill. There was stiffness and bad muscle pain. My new doctor ( we had changed by then) gave me generic Cymbalta, which pretty much took care of the aching except....

    Has anyone had increased pain after being taken off of savella?

    I have been on savella for at least 6 years for fibromyalgia. All of the sudden last month my Dr decided to tell me that he was no longer going to prescribe it to me. So I have gotten off it and I have so much pain in my hips and knees that walking/moving is a new experience in pain that I feel like not moving at all. I know he did this because I asked him if he knew anything else that could help me with the pain I was having even with the savella. I forgot you never question him. Does anyone have....
