I was diagnosed 2 years ago but have been dealing with this pain for 3 years ( it took a year to diagnose me). I was actual diagnosed by the pain clinic in one visit and my doctor went with it. So that doctor method was to drug me up so i didn't feel anything and all it did was make me sick and have crazy side effects.
Now my new doctor of the past year has taken me off all pain medicines and says that I can take neurotin or lyrica. well neurotin gave me crazy side effects so I am trying lyrica now. But I have pain almost everyday its constant in my back in different areas. And I have what i call moving pains which i will wake up and my arm will hurt then the next day it will be my leg. Everytime I go to the doctors he says that it is Fibro and their is nothing that he can do.
Does anyone else have the same problems? What do you guys do to help with the pain? Anyone have any pain that is insane and the highest pain you can handle? What should I do about the doctor? Any s uggestions would be greatful. Oh and My doctor took me off work because of the pain.View Thread
