Just been to the doctors last week as she was increasing my Elavil for IBS and we started to discuss Fibromyalgia. She 'tested' the 18 tender points and I definitely felt them but don't know how much it should hurt compared to someone who doesn't have this disease. The reason we started to talk about it is, 4 times in the last year I hurt everywhere to touch. Not just the tender points but everywhere including my face, arms, legs etc. It didn't have to be a hard touch, just sitting my hand on my arm hurts. The doctor tells me you treat Fibro with Elavil as well but in the mean time has me scheduled for a sleep study 11 Jan. Since starting the Elavil I've slept better but normally wake up tired, wake up all night so much some times that I don't think I slept all night. I also suffer from headaches everyday with an occasional migraine thrown in just to make life exciting LOL! Basically feel like I'm falling apart this last year, first the IBS and now more pain. Hope it just all goes away and soon! Thanks for letting me talk.
