    Interaction between Lyrica and Adderall

    I have been taking 100mg of Lyrica 3 times a day for several years now. I’ve never had any side effects. In fact I wouldn’t even know I was taking it except for the fact that I swallow a pill 3xs a day and it’s been working WONDERS. Last week my Psych prescribed me 10mg of Adderall XR once a day. I’m very careful to check all interactions when I’m prescribed a drug. If it will interact with Lyrica I won’t take it. Lyrica is the only thing that has worked this well and I will not give it up. Long....

    calves are burning

    I could barely get out of bed & walk the other day because of my calves. I've exercised on/off my entire life so I know what sore calves feel like. BUT I haven't exercised in over a month, so I honestly couldn't understand what I had done because it felt like I had run a marathon or started an exercise program like bootcamp, both leave you with sore calves & thighs. Today marks day 4 of the same pain and I'm stumped to understand the cause. It was this morning that I began....

    Low on spoons..

    Today I'm running on only a few spoons. Tying my shoes and putting my hair up was exhausting. Explaining to my husband how I feel today made me feel like a burden. I have had fibromyalgia for 10 years but only got an official diagnosis 16 months ago, because of my age. I'm 36. I thought I was just getting older lol. I have become well versed in fibromyalgia and run support groups in and around my hometown. If anyone has and questions or concerns feel free to ask me anytime. Chances are I....

    Fibro Symptoms

    Hello Everyone, New here. I'm starting to lose it emotionally and I'm reaching out to see if my thinking could be correct. I was diagnosed about 5 years ago when I went for a pain injection for back pain. I cannot take most of the prescription drugs due to allergic reactions. Pretty much just norco for pain and that is prescribed by my Orthopedic for degenerative disc disease. Lately, I am suffering from chronic UTI's and body aches like the flu. Fatigue, ha! My PCP diagnosed me with....

    Diagnosis

    Hi there I have been having symptons for a couple of years now and the doctors can't seem to figure out exactly what I have. It first started in 2016 when I got a headache that felt like it was cracking my head open, just after the headache started I battled to look at any lights. This got increasingly worse and I started getting a fever. I was exhausted and could not stay awake. About 3 hours later I went to the doctor. They admitted me into hospital straight away suspecting meningitis. I was....

    Is it fibromyalgia or a misdiagnosis?

    Is it fibromyalgia or a misdiagnosis? Please get more opinions! My 34 yr old son who lives several states away from me was diagnosed was fibromyalgia over a year ago then his symptoms just got worse. He got pneumonia 6 months ago and when more tests were done he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s. Already at Stage 2. Since then he is now at stage 3 and has to have a bone marrow transplant. Please keep us in your thoughts and I truly hope none of you or anyone ever has to go through this ordeal!

    Lessons Learned about Fibro Pt. 1

    Hello Everyone, I am writing this post in order to help others who have been suffering with this diagnosis. I was diagnosed with this and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS in 2012. At that time there was not a lot of information out there and even fewer doctors who had come across this. I was initially sent to a psychiatrist for "behavioral modification" in order to address this as it was much more commonly thought to be a psychiatric disorder instead of a neurological one. Thankfully the....
