I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at the same time I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis about 10 years ago. I have been taking Gabapentin, Cymbalta, and amitriptyline. Apnea and use the CPAP machine, and about 6 months ago my Narcolepsy was diagnosed. I now take Provigil and take a 1 hour nap at work. Since I have a stressful job, made more stressful by a horrible boss, I don't know how much longer I can continue working. I also might lose my aqua aerobics exercise and support 2x week, because I am too "loud, rude, and I don't participate in class", according to the director.
Narcolepsy is very depressing, especially since everyone thinks it is just another of my excuses" for the way I am.
