I was only recently diagnosed, so I'm still figuring things out. I was doing OK for awhile after the diagnosis, but just had a flare up start last week, and it's been making me miserable. I've managed to drag myself to work, but I am exhausted and aching all over. And the Fibro Fog makes it hard for me to focus.

In addition to the usual pain and exhaustion and difficulty concentrating, I have to deal with moderate sleep apnea, endometriosis, chronic depression (had that long before fibro, though, and zoloft keeps that mostly at bay), IBS, headaches, and numbness and tingling in my hands. Sometimes I suffer from insomnia, and quite often when I lie down and try to sleep, I'll get muscle spams in my legs (not RLS, just quick random jerks).

My doctor and a friend of mine who suffers from fibromyalgia have suggested yoga to me as a way of coping. I'm going to give that a whirl and see if it helps any. I'm not taking Lyrica yet, but my doctor did prescribe cyclobenzaprine to help me relax and sleep, and I'm also on anti-depressants.
