Asking for help is the most powerfully action you can do to DO YOU. I appreciate you reaching out to DrBev. I understand that when we don’t know that we don’t know, we simply don’t know. How be so ever, when we do know that is see with our real eyes, as my Nana would say “Get up, Get your drose’ up out your ass and be bout’ something.” GOOGLE. I’m kidding; she didn’t say GOOGLE that was me, in DrBev’s World, Emotions R Us.
QUESTION: Why is it some SSRI type drugs work on some people with fibromyalgia and not with others? Why do anti-epileptic drugs work on some people with fibro when SSRI type drugs don’t work?
Fibromyalgia is by all accounts a difficult syndrome to treat. Some drugs have come to market in recent years, but there is scant information regarding their effectiveness. I am not a physician; however, DrBev encourages you to Google, as I found several websites and an on-line support groups that may be of assistance emotionally. In DrBev’s World transformation occurs when the more education and knowledge that you have at your disposal the better your emotional self-increases. From that place in our mind we can see infinite possibilities. Emotions R Us. Our Bodies and our Minds are not separate. Know that you are not alone. Help you help others.
