I can't take any anti-inflammatory medication due to kidney disease caused by an interaction with Celebrex and another med I had to take for the RAD.
All the treatments for FM only treat the pain and they are not very successful with that. There's nothing for the insomnia, forgetfulness, spaciness, stiffness, swelling, speech and language difficulties, cold intolerance and never ending fatigue. Even when I do sleep, I don't wake up rested.

If and when I ever have a good day, it's so easy for me to over-do and then have rebound symptoms for day on end afterwards. That's my biggest challenge is figuring out my limits when I am doing well so the next week or so aren't absolutely miserable.
