    I appreciate that. We will be fine, we just need to find the right treatment. It's something that is still a little blurry regarding how to treat it. So we are researching.

    The disorder is fibromyalgia. So it's not fatal, but it can have serious implications on her quality of life. We are trying to figure out the best things to do for her.

    We are going with the serotonin treatments first. Cymbalta has been shown to help a lot, so that will be our first stop.

    Fibromyalgia is kind of a weird catch-all for a bunch of disorders that all present similarly. So we have to find out which "brand" of fibromyalgia she has, in essence

    My wife has that as well. She doesn't take any medication for it though because of the side effects. Instead she's always bothering me to give her massages and rub downs.
    There's certain things that make it flare up that she avoids. Alcohol is one. Flu shots make it real bad for like a month, among other things.

    Unfortunately, my wife being a nurse leads to her believing in medication to a great degree.

    Also unfortunately, I feel as though the medications she has been on in recent years have made her dependent on medication.
