I've been dealing with fibro for 6 years already. Sorry to say that these doctors are all full of it. I have changed my doctors so many times, that I wonder if I will ever find someone that really cares or know how to treat their patient. I too have been taking a lot of different meds. The ones that do relieve some of the pain are cymbalta and tramadol, but I have to take more than what my doctor prescribe cause its just not enough. I ask for something stronger and they just don't want to give me anything else, so I usually run out of medication before time and the insurance I had would not pay until the month was up, which sucks. Now my husband lost his job and we have no insurance, so I have no meds and I am in so much pain that I just want to end it. The longer I have this disease the worst it gets, My doctor also took me out of work, but my disability case was denied and now I am trying to get them to review the case which my lawyer says its going to be 1 year to 2 before I can get a date.View Thread
Hello; I too am diagnose with fibro. I guess I'm not the one to ask advise from because, I too am finding it hard to live and deal with this disease. Not only do you have to deal with this terrible pain, but you have to deal with depression, the stress your family is going thru because you can not work, your always pisted off, very emotional. I don't know how to deal with this pain and depression. Suicide is all I think about, I know that I could never do it personally, but I wish I could be at the wrong place at the right time if you get what I mean. I guess I am a coward, wanting someone else to do it for me. Then I feel really ashamed because my mother has cancer, I wish I could trade in her place, and my sister was involved in a car accident, which left her fighting for her life, I would gladly trade in her place too. But no, I am suffering everyday, with no relief, crying everyday. I even regret having my children and getting married, because of them too, I have to stick around. I don't know how much longer I am going to be able to put up with all this. My life is not worth living anymore, I feel like such a horrible person.View Thread
