    Fibromyalgia help.

    I have severe pain from both Fibromyalgia and arthritis. My Rheumatologist has me taking Salsalate, which is a low dose anti inflammatory. In addition I use cannibus salve and take Norco when necessary. I am a senior & have other issues such as Emphysema & Pancreatitis, just to mention a few. My mornings are nearly unbearable, as I'm sure most of yours are. My other 'medicine' is dressing nice with makeup and nice hair. Surprisingly, it boosts my self esteem & I feel better....

    Advice needed

    Hi there, Looking for some advice. I've struggled for over a decade with Mental Health and always been on a cocktail of extremely potent sedatives. I made the decision recently with my Psychiatrist that I wanted to stop my meds and try and be strong enough mentally to cope without them. I've always suffered with being in pain but since stopping the strong meds I was on its become 10 times worse, I am in agony daily!! :( Been reading up on Fibro and can honestly say I tick all the boxes......

    New fibro treatment?

    I was wondering if anyone else has tried Fit Sticks for their fibro and if it works for them? I started using September 1st and I have darn near zero fibro pain now! They are loaded with vitamins and garcinia something. I can't remember that name! Thank you fibro fog! My typical days before taking this was spent in unbelievable pain and burning all over. It felt like all the pain nerves in my back was radiating a burning pain all over my body. We have all tried the diff meds they but us on that....

    Frustration

    I have moved to another state and am unable to find a doctor who will see me when they see I'm on pain medication. Today I had to go to the ER because the pain was unbearable. I received a dose of pain medicine and that was all they said that they could do.I had even been to a pain clinic and was told to see a psychiatrist. I am so frustrated,exhausted and in pain. Tomorrow I will make an appointment with a psychiatrist. Thanks for letting me vent.

  • So tired

    Was recently dx'd. Not pleased about it, of course, but it does explain why I've felt like total crap for the last three years. The worst for me is, that after working a full day (I'm a substitute teacher), it takes me another day to recover from it. I've really cut back on where I work (not too far from home) and when. Half days are great when they come along. Here it, 12:30 am in not so sunny California, and I'm up because my lower legs are killing me. Taken my meds, just waiting....
