Hi everyone.. I'm a newbie..
Let's see.. I am 41 with a preschooler and a toddler. Last week, I finally got off my "I'm a working mom, with 2 small children,I should just BE this tired.. Lifting a 30 lb toddler daya after day.. or course I hurt" duff and went to the doctor.
After A TON of questions, check of 18 places, she indicated that she thinks FM, but needs to rule out other stuff.
Blood work revealed no Lupus, RA or thyroid issues. Xrays revealed a little bit of Arthritis in Lumbar spine and a little bit of spondylosis on C-spine. Doc said she does not think this is what is causing all of my pain, but did not again mention FM. She said she would like for me to do yoga 3-4 times a week and call her in a couple of weeks to see how I am doing..
In the meanwhile I am taking 800 mg IB 3x a day. Bendryl at night and Culturelle to help with my tummy
Should I just start on a vitamin/enzyme program.. or wait????
