They make it seem that just have to pop a pill and you are good as new. If it were that easy, you and I wouldn't be talking about it right now. I have taken Savella, Cymbalta and Lyrica. Either they didn't work or they made me extremely sick. 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.

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.
