I've battled with Fibo, CF, degen disc disease, etc, etc,... since 2003. I didn't get a diagnosis until 2005. I had never taken any kind of pain meds til then. In fact, I always looked down on folks that had to take any kinds of meds because I was ignorant on the subject.
My family doesn't like my dr... but i think its the fact of the meds they don't like. I was raised that meds were not a good thing!!! Everything I have read says that I'm taking the correct meds for the problems i have.
I get so tired of hearing, " You aren't the fun loving person you used to be! We would love to have the old you back. Your dr is a quack. You're fat!.." (yes ive gained some weight....I'm in my 40's & have 3 kids).
I'm just so tired of listening to them harp constantly. I know others who have the same stuff we have and they r on the same type meds i am....I was wondering what kinds of meds do you all take and how much? fHope that isnt too personal.... Thank you in advance.View Thread
