As I prepare to travel home to see my mother, sister, nephew and niece I am getting excited to see them all. I have been in an experimental state with the Savella for over a month now and have beengood 70% of the time as far as pain intensity, it is way down, but am struggling with depression and not being able to get good solid sleep is making me a bit on the anxious and angry side. I am still having the hot flash/sweating think going on but at least it is every few hours instead of hourly, and some days I can go all morning and afternoon before they start up. the worst is at night and I am waking up every 2 hours with sweats. I am trying Black Kohosh, Sage tea, and have gotten no relief from it. Someone told me to go ahead and get some estrogen creme from the doctor which will be the next attempt I make to control this. The IBS symptoms have also returned after I had those managed for over a year but with the Savella it seems to have confused my body to the point where no matter how careful I am with my diet I am still having bouts with my digestion..
I hope all my friends here at MDJ are able to see family and friends for the holidays and that many of these days to come will be pleasant and pain managed.....God Bless us everyone.....
