Finally started treatment

Postby shelby1975 » Mon May 19, 2014 10:11 pm

Finally after 9 yrs I started treatment for fibro. I started taking 100mg of sertraline 4 weeks ago after soldiering through awful side effects I admit I'm sleeping better and feel more positive no effect pain wise. So today Doc prescribed 100mg gabapentin 3 times daily and to my surprise quickly felt less pain still sore on the pressure points though. Hopefully with an increase in a few weeks will se more benefits keeping everything crossed. Just to add a quick note I started swimming a few weeks ago not only have I lost a few inches (sadly not a single pound) I feel so much more at peace after. Now managing 64 lengths in an hour :-D Onwards and upwards

WOW!!! 64 lengths in an hour is good going :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

Gabapentin does need time to build up in your system, so hopefully those early benefits you have been feeling will be the foundations for others to come :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: It can be difficult to find something that leaves you completely pain~free, but something that helps make what could be a significant difference to what is experienced tends to be a more than acceptable alternative :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

:goodluck2: :goodluck2: :goodluck2: with it all. If you get a chance to post an update at some point along the way, it will be great to hear how you find things. Knowing that someone has found a mix of things that really makes a difference can help boost others in their search for the same kind of results :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

64 lengths on it's own is amazing, not to mention in one hour
with or without flipper(s)?
on good days I walk 64 lengths in one hours doing some food shopping
all the best :cow-wave: Lu
