Avatar f tn This is one of the first things that was beat into our heads in nursing school. NEVER abandon your patients! This can bring serious implications! I am not saying you should file a lawsuit, just that it is optional. Please take good care and keep us updated! Have you sent out that hair sample yet or checked into the holistic practitioners yet?
Avatar f tn But the neuro gave me savella to try and im not sure if i want to since im a nursing mom and its not recomended for nursing moms. Anyone know of a medication used to treat this condition that is? He also gave me a pamplet for an attorney to sign up for social security. Anyone here win social security with only a fibromyalgia diagnosis? Thanks for help.
Avatar n tn The hand numbness I referred to is strictly a withdrawal seizure precursor symptom (hey, a new acronym, WSPS!)for benzos in general and usually doesn't occur until you've been out for a day or two. Just taking one at night probably wouldn't put you in my shoes if you stopped. I was on it, of course, 24/7 until I ran out. I would suggest that Marty, should she choose to quit the stuff, taper over as couple weeks and be conscious of those WSPSs.
Avatar n tn Dear Cheryl, As I hope you can tell, you have several people sending you as much support as we can send electronically from a distance...not to mention sending you a LOT of caring. As often seems to be the case, GravesLady said it best when she said "Don't ever give up!" It is SO, so difficult, though, to need to fight hard on your own behalf at a time when you really do not have the physical or emotional strength to fight.
Avatar n tn Has anyone experienced any seizure-like activity? Not actually a grand mal but almost like your brain is having misfirings and they all the sudden catch up w/ each other. I hope this makes some sense. I have been having this for a few days now. I am worried because it seems like everyone here is having a slow-down of symptoms and I feel like mine are doing the opposite. I have tingling everyday and now this.
