Hi, I'm new here...been seeing this community for a few months. I was DX with fibro. 1 year ago...had it for 13...just got sick of going to Dr.s and hearing that there was nothing wrong with me according to their test results. I am a mother of 4 and I am in pain. To the point of wanting to just not wake-up sometimes. I feel like a total ZERO. I can't get out of bed without pain..I HATE THIS! My PCP was giving me Lyrica for 8.5 months and vicodin (5mg) This really helped, Vicodin was only for "break through" pain. He was giving me samples and trying to get my Ins. to cover it for me...After submitting a request for it 1 time.. he and the office girls gave-up. (I'm talking about the Lyrica, not the Vicodin...Vicodin I had no trouble getting) I went to a pain management faciity last week and they are trying me on new meds. So far...no good...My Dr. tried other Meds before the Lyrica also and nothing worked like the lyrica and norco combo. Now I am looking at going through this stupid guessing game again and I'm scared because I know this pain doesn't go away easily. My kids are suffering because of this..and my husband ABSOLUTELY does not believe I really have any pain. I guess it's just easier to think that someone who always had at least 2 jobs and won body building competitions became a lazy fat whiner that has to pop a pill to function. I really can't take this anymore.. If this is what the remainder of my life is going to be like...I pass. I hate myself. The neck and back and hip pain is soo bad! I really don't know what to do here..I know I sound like a moaning Myrtle but I needed to vent to ppl. who really feel pain too.0 Replies |[a style="outline: none; cursor: pointer; color: rgb(0, 102, 153);">Watch This Discussion | [a style="outline: none; cursor: pointer; color: rgb(0, 102, 153);">Report ThisView Thread
