More whining

One of the things that really annoys me about fibromyalgia is that finding the right meds at the right dose is more of an art than a science.
For example, the med I take for my fibro is Cymbalta. I started at 30mg, which helped a little. My doc then upped me to 60mg, which helped even more. So then she upped me to 90mg, and I have been slowly losing all the ground I gained. My sleep is back to being very easily disturbed (I wake up at least 2-3 times a night, I think), I am groggy all day, I’m headachey, etc. Getting in to see her for a follow-up appointment to get my doseage adjusted again has proven to be tricky – I’ve wound up having to move the appointment (for my reasons or for hers) a couple of times now. In theory, I will be seeing her bright and early on Friday.
At least the Cymbalta doesn’t actively make me sick like the previous med I was on did. That’s something, right?
