Roller coaster ride

So life has been like a roller coaster ride lately. Lots of ups and downs, (I never have liked those things lol). The fam and I came down with the Swine Flu so that put me out of commission for 8-10 days....very tired and bad headache are all I can say. Luckily however we've recovered and life is moving on.

I've been in and out of flares lately and cutting back on my meds has really made sleeping difficult. My legs are either in a ton of pain or the restless leg thing is driving me crazy. I haven't found anything that helps my jumpy legs other than medicine so it's been a long month. My family doc was telling me about the new drug Savella (sp?). She says that she has switched alot of her fibro patients over to it, with stunning results, some are even hiking and jogging daily!!!!! Can you believe that? My husband just about fell off his chair when she said that. So right now while we're trying to get pregnant, isn't the time to start a new drug, but hopefully by this time next year I'll be able to give it a whirl.

Does anyone out there have any experience with Savella, I really haven't had much time to do any research on it, but I'll keep you posted as I do.

Sadly this is just a short post as I really need to head to bed, but I wanted to check in and let folks know I'm still alive. I'll try to post more in the next week or so, I've just been so busy sleeping lately I haven't had much motivation to chat. Sad
