Added Fibro to the mix

So just confirmed that Inhave developed fibro also. Rheum put me back on gabapentin (which Intolerate well). I have to say it’s really helping but still… for anyone out there dealing with the two, how do you cope with both? Ugh…what a nuisance. Lol

That’s frustrating. Hopefully you can get it quiet it down fairly fast.

I know this won’t come close to solving anything but do you do mild yoga? I use Peggy Cappy’s “Yoga for Arthritis” because it’s not specific to “classic” arthritis. I started using it about three years ago when I kept getting recurring pain with my marathon-running phase, and in a week, it was like a magical transformation. I’ve stuck with it since - six days a week.

Hey…I did yoga for a couple years but my instructor retired. I haven’t been able to find a place that works with my schedule (and financials). I will definitely look for yoga for arthritis. Thanks for the tip. Yoga really does wonders and I’ve missed it.

And yes, much as I hate more meds, it really is helping.
