Been suffering from Fibro symptoms for over 20 years but only just realised that the condition is Fibro.
I suffer from headaches, chest pains, pains generally all over the body, tinnitus and IBS. In addition, I also suffer from sleep apnoea and acid reflux. It has all started from the usual stress, anxiety and depression for a number of reasons.
Over 20 years been prescribed with various anti-depressants, beta blockers etc. Nothing seemed to work. Then with CBT I managed to get myself off all meds for nearly 5 years. Please note I did not know I was suffering from Fibro. I simply thought it was anxiety.
However with recent events in my life along with health issues, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and was given a number of different meds until I started Pregablin.
I am unsure this is working. This week the dosages have been increased. I'm now on 3 x 75mg twice a day now. I don't know what to do to manage my symptoms. I run a number of businesses and Im struggling to manage my life.
I have a 15 year old daughter who is very poorly and 2 other kids to look after too. What can I do?

Thank you for your comment. Yes I feel the effects of the sedation.
I need to know what else I can do to help myself to manage a whole day.
