I have now been on Savella for just over two months. I have to be honest. I’m not thoroughly impressed. I know that I am on the lowest dose and have the ability to increase the dosage but I guess I was just hoping for a lot more. Savella really has taken away a lot of the deep muscle pain from fibro. I can climb the stairs without feeling like my legs are on fire and I don’t feel like my back muscles are in knots. So that is definitely a perk. It just hasn’t done anything for my joint pain. In fact it seems like my joint pain has gotten a lot worse. Some can be expected as winter has rolled in. This morning I could hardly walk. Abby didn’t sleep well at all. John was on call at the hospital so I was alone and she wouldn’t sleep unless she was touching me whether it be laying on me or next to me so needless to say, I didn’t sleep much. That coupled with the cold temps and yucky rain made it difficult to get moving. At my last rheumatologist appointment, I started Mobic in hopes to ease the joint pain but it just hasn’t cut it. I have a feeling some blood work is in my future (I go back for a check up on Wednesday). Maybe a dosage adjustment will help. I will post results of appointment after my visit!
