It’s Been A Week of Fibro Meds…

My Fibromyalgia diagnosis was a week ago.

Since then, I have been on Cymbalta and Cyclobenzaprine. I am still dealing with getting used to these meds. Someone told me it would take me about a week for my body to get adjusted. I still am yawning randomly to the point my eyes water, I want to lay down to take a nap but can not fall asleep at that point. I’ve had two stand-out headaches since that time as well, one being right now. I just feel “foggy”. Just when I think I’m feeling “back to normal”, I get hit with the whoa I’m tired. I have a ton of stuff that I want to get accomplished but I don’t have the gusto to get it done.

School has been interesting that’s for sure. In a salon environment, sometimes it is just go go go and I’ve learned that right now, that wears me out pretty dang quick. I’m glad I’ve still stayed on top of it working with guests but it makes me somewhat panicky that I might screw something up with how I feel.

I really hope my body gets adjusted soon. It’s giving me writer’s block even of what to share. I’ve been able to pick Kelsie and Aubrey up more but still, I want the energy back.

  1. I take those exact things plus Meloxicam. You are so tired because of the Cyclobenzaprine. It is a muscle relaxer and whoa will they ever make you tired. I had to limit to taking mine at bedtime. About 4 hours after I take it I am so tired that no matter what I do, I can not keep my eyes open. I hope they work for you. Mine does a good job but I still have some horrible days.
