Since my pain was only on my left-side and certain portions of my body ache to the touch, she diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and gave be Gabapentin (an anti-seizure
medication). Needless to say, it helped for a while, but the headaches returned with a vengeance. I began having headaches from dusk to dawn, non-stop. All my PCP wanted to do was give me more drugs and not work with me to get to the root cause of what was/is causing my symptoms.
