    Here's the deal...

    I felt good. Then I ate pumpkin pie (eggs, sugar, wheat, milk) and drank coffee (with cream.) Couldn't sleep for the restlessness and pain. Next day: exhausted, confused, hurt all over. Pain and exhaustion because I couldn't sleep? All three because of what I ate? Regardless, I'm back off of dairy, eggs, gluten...and feeling good again.

    I am new to this. I believe I have had symptoms for 20 years. I got to be in so much pain after the last 10 or so. I was diagnosed quickly by a very good and intuitive doctor. I was given Vicodin in addition to meds I was already on. Right now I'm on flexeril, Prozac, Clonazapin and other unrelated medications. I was sent to a Rheumatologist he also diagnosed fibromyalgia. I was give up to 4 Vicodin a day. I moved twice since diagnosis and 4 additional doctors agreed. I am now experiencing the....

I no longer think about "do I also have..." Instead, to my way of thinking, they are all responses to a common malady. The #1 trigger for me, historically, has been poor sleep. I have found a medicine that has helped a great deal with the sleep problem and my fibromyalgia, et....
