Hello Brian and :welcome: to the forum! Come on in and get comfortable :couch2: Everyone here is in the same boat! There are a lot of diabetics that suffer from Fibromyalgia, I think it has a lot to do with the fact that diabetes can damage your nerve endings. I have neuropathy in my feet and left hand and take gabapentin, it helps some. Take some time and read what interests you. I hope that you have time to visit often and take care.

Hi Brian, I have Fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis. Having other health issues with diabetes is hard. With diabetes I can take blood sugar, take medicine, and have A1C taken. I can control my carbs to help the diabetes. I dont have these options for my other health concerns.
It would be nice some days to say my MS reading is ...
Cymbalta has been a blessing for me. I also take Savella.

Good Luck with all of this. Any and all health issues can be hard to live with.

Welcome Brian :) you will find lot of support and good advice here. What type of diabetes do you have? Are you on any medications for diabetes or just diet controlled? Let us know how you're doing. I also have other conditions other than diabetes so I understand how frustrating it can be and also quite costly with all the medicines you have to take. :(
