I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 7 years ago and got Lyme shortly after. The Lyme was not indicated until 2 years ago. After being treated for Lyme I felt some relief but only for a few months. I was seeing different Dr's and was put on different pain meds and antidepressants and vitimans . I kept getting worse so i weaned myself off all meds and started using essential oils. To be honest. .. I feel better than I did on the meds. The side effects of the medications were harder on me than suffering through the pain. I still have no life but at least I can cope now.
