Victoria, we did have that discussion about fibro, and I don't rememeber what I felt about it. But yeah, it's been in the back of my mind for a while (I recently made a "what is it?" post here).

My doctor did recommend thyroid augmentation. Right now I'm taking Parnate (30mg) and Ambien (20mg qhs) with prn's of Xanax and buprenorphine. (Trazodone as a sedative didn't work for me - kept having to increase the dose.)

Do you think that estrogens and/or testosterones could help someone my age?

>"Betrayal By the Brain" by Jay Goldstein, MD

I'm laughing now because I often use the expression, "I feel like my brain has betrayed me." I will check this one out. I've been looking for good references (not too "pop psychology," but not too technical) on this for a while. Where is he?

Neurontin is something I've tried. It made me very fuzzy and oversedated, and I gained weight. I don't think it helped with the pain, but it might have. It was actually suggested for the panic disorder (which may or may not "really" be epilepsy.)

Anyway, thanks for the info. It looks like it will be useful - I'll talk to my psychopharmacologist about it (I see him tomorrow).
