I’m 19 and in college. I barely finished my first year due to my pain and inability to get out of bed. I yawn so much from being tired but I get 8-12 hours of sleep a night. Above I have listed all my symptoms that I can recall. I’m miserable and I can’t seem to escape my pain. I’m currently on 300mg of gabapentin three times a day and I still feel pain. I’m only 102 pounds. I’ve been to my pcp, a physical therapist, gastroenterologist, rheumatologist, and I didn’t get any answers until I went to a neurologist and got diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I’m just unsure because my rheumatologist couldn’t even diagnosis me with fibro. I don’t have lupus or arthritis for sure. Before I got my gabapentin my rheum suggested two Tylenol at night and one in the morning because my stomach is so sensitive to pain med or they just don’t work. I’m scared I won’t be able to graduate college due to my issues.
