these stories are so sad. i too have fb and was on other meds first, until i explained to my doctor that none have made me feel any better. she gave me narcotics and then she didnt want to give me anymore until my rhumetologist said it was ok. when they said it was ok they gave me more pills a month then she gave me and refills so i would not run out. now when i saw my doctor this month she ask me did i need anymore pain meds i wanted to tell her no and just wait til i saw my rhumetologist but i was nice and took the little 25 pills she gave me lol!.. but on another note i hope u all find doctors that understand the pain that u go through day to day because its no fun.View Thread
