I’m so sad. I’ve been trying hard to get better. I go to physical therapy and myofascial release appointments several times a week. I eat right. I take my medications and supplements. I rest. I exercise. I rest some more. I try to keep a positive attitude. Things are improving, but the fatigue is not. After speaking with my doctor I am trying to taper down my dose of gabapentin to see if it helps with the fatigue. I was so excited at the idea of getting off of this medication…until I tapered down the dose. The pain came back, the sensitivity to touch is back, the burning skin is back, difficulty sleeping is back. I’m feeling really discouraged. I also feel alone. I’m so tired of being tired. I’m tired of not being able to work. I’m tired of missing out. I’m tired of letting people down.
