Nothing works. Rest sit lay stand up and lay down all day long. Nights are disruptive. Legs hurt. Numb, tingles, lower back and butt on fire. Constant heat radiating off. Legs uncontrollable twinge and jerk all day n night long. Headaches/ migraines daily trying to keep up. Exhausted all time. Walking is a chore in itself. Left leg with nerve damage is weak and no control turning inwards and like drag leg when walking.

Short distance of walking. Short distances of driving. Legs go paralyzed trip n fall. Fear of falling down now happens just yesterday in the car dealership.

Quality of life. This isn't living. This is just existing in this world. Family n friends don't understand. Don't understand Fibromylagia either. I'm a sufferer or survivor. Trials of Cymbalta. Doesn't really work
