I have fibro as well. I have it fairly severe and I have crohn's to top it off *head desk*
I am on amitriptyline for my fibro. I get the crippling migraines that come with it as well. It was a process of elimination for me to get diagnosed. I had CT Scans, MRI's, Spinal Taps, x-rays, blood work... the list goes on. The final prognosis was fibromyalgia and I have somewhat gotten control of it over the last 3 years.
However a new diagnosis of crohn's has turned my body upside down.
There is a group on facebook for fibro, I suggest "liking" it. They post lots of interesting facts and articles about fibromyalgia and its actually pretty neat as they also talk about different ways of coping with it. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fibro...11775228998691
The only downside to the diagnosis is a lot of people don't really take it serious. When you say you have fibro they tend to roll their eyes and go "yea thats what they diagnose you with when they can't figure anything else out." it can be frustrating, however more and more awareness is being brought to it and alternate therapies are being discovered.
Some things that have helped me:
Making sure I get at LEAST 8 hours of sleep every night
Napping when my body says "nap!"
and most importantly... Listening to my body. You REALLY need to be tuned in with your body and listen to it. It will tell you what your limitations are.
