    Has anyone had success with Gabapentin for Fibromyalgia symptoms? Any negative reactions to Gabapentin?

    Hi all. I’ve just been recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia even though I’ve suspected it for the last 4 years. My Rheumatologist prescribed me Gabapentin but I’m deathly afraid because of the possible side effects. I’ve been on Lyrica about 3 years ago, which did nothing for my pain and made me a total zombie. I couldn’t focus, was extremely fatigued, and lost things (I lost my wedding ring, of all things!!) :’(

    Knowing the unknown

    Today as I wake up, I realize again that my body doesn’t like me. Diagnosed as a child with cerebral palsy, 39 years later to be diagnosed with heredity spastic paraplegia, but waiting on the type. Doctor said it may be an unknown type because my symptoms are so rare. Then fighting chronic fatigue, leaky gut, migraines, Hashimoto’s disease a whole host of other issues, it’s disturbing not to know what’s wrong. I am doing my own research, trying to find an answer myself. It sucks when you don’t know. It’s like the monster from the deep. A faceless creature that is making life go from walking to being in a chair full time in rapid fashion of 3 years. #ChronicIllness #ChronicFatigueSyndromeampME #HereditarySpasticParaplegia #HashimotosThyroiditis #ChronicPain #UnknownIllness #CerebralPalsy #LeakyGut #Anxiety #Wheelchair

    Who has leaky gut and how do you deal?

    #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #LeakyGut

    I almost certainly have a leaky gut. I’m doing a bunch of tests right now. I just mailed off some stuff from my body that I didn’t think I would ever be allowed send in the mail! Anyways, what are symptoms that you get from it? I know it’s gross but don’t spare details if you don’t want, I’m trying to figure out what I have to do. I’m stuck right now where idk what to eat. What triggers the worse symptoms? Do you get migraines or other issues from eating issues?
