hello all,

About a month ago I went to bed feeling fine, the next day woke up a little sore no biggie wasn't the first time. But this time I was getting worse everyday stiffer,sore. After a week It went from sore and stiff to all out pain from shoulders,elbow,wrist,hands,fingers,Knees,ankles,toes,bottom of feet, and even my tail bone seemed to hurt like I feel really ******n it, So I went to to doctor and they gave me RA meds didn't work, went back and they gave me nerve, pain, and inflammatory med, didn't work. all this right here is affecting my job and I have to be fast as a cook,So yesterday I had no choice but to call in and to the hospital once seen I explained everything to them and one nurse immediately said fibromyalgia, Was given a steroid shot,muscle relaxer, and a pain reliever after a 15mins I felt a lot better and could stand up without assistance. Then she came back with a prescription for Cymbalta this one was going to cost 167 dollars and flexaril 6 dollars Needless to say I may be screwed.
