I mentioned a soapbox in the last post.
I got on one.
I got down.
Stupid me.
I just couldn't keep my mouth shut.

I started looking at the different kind of pills out there for Fibromyalgia. When I got to the sleep inducers I casually mentioned that I didn't want to take them. Right now I wish I had one. It's 4:30 and I'm awake.

Why am I awake? The tooth that the dentist worked on again today is throbbing. It was Day 2 of the root canal. Oh joy. So I just took another pain pill and I hope it works. 

Also, I worked on the last post until 2 and now its 4:30. If that tells me anything this is going to be a very pissy day. I should have just shut down when I first started to get tired but, no, I wanted to keep reading about treatments.

I think I'm going to put on a movie and scowl.


  1. I read your post "What is out there" and with me the pain made me depressed which showed up as anger. I have a loving husband, live comfortably so what did I have to be angry about LOL. I am on Cymbalta and yes sometimes it still doesn't help but at least I don't yell at our dogs any more LOL. Medications effect each person differently just like fibro is different for everyone that has it.

    It's ok to get on a soapbox. People that read this and care will respond and want to help.


  2. Dear Rosemary, I am so sorry to hear that you've been having severe sleep problems. I think I know what you're going through. I, too, had a root canal soon after a car accident, which cracked my molar. It was very painful and the throbbing pain kept me awake and miserable.

    The worst part was that the root canal may have damaged my nerves, particularly my trigeminal nerve. Finally, after having almost four years of constant jaw, ear and neck pain in the molar area, I found a doctor who performed nerve blocks that has given me sweet pain relief! Just wanted to share this so that you can keep an eye out for any fascial/jaw pain. It seems that we fibro people have super reactions to what other people recover normally. All my best wishes for a speedy recovery!
