Daily life with CM/SM

Postby princesk8 » Mon May 18, 2015 8:57 am

I haven't been on here in a long time, ever since the group moved to FB, but I like it here better. Glad to see people posting again.

Currently I am on Savella 2 times a day for nerve pain. Had issues with Gabapentin and Lyrica so I'm glad I'm not on either anymore.
I do take other meds as needed for the headaches, muscle issues etc. but have managed to continue to work thankfully.

But some days are tougher than others. I am not having a good day and stayed home from work to rest but my brain doesn't stop.
I hope everyone is well!
