I have just started a new drug called Savella.My MD says this is more of a nerve pain med and is not a nsaid. Also, I have started seeing a chiropracter and I Swim when I can. Walking helps also since I live in the country. And having a supportive Husband and Son I try to not let things stress me out.I'm trying to accept this and I just deal with this sometimes an hour at a time. I have God on my side and a great Friend support system.View Thread
You know after goin to a Arthritus doctor a Pain Doctor 2 Medical Doctors I seem to get the same thing. Fibro is not seen as a serious painful condition. And also, Pain Meds do not help. Every Doctor I have seen wants me to try all these nsaids that are very expensive and they want you to get massages and exercise. It is not a serious health condition!!! Well I'm here to tell ya it is extremly painful and has changed my life in Big!!! ways.I am $10,000 dollars in to this and cannot take any of these nsaids .I do good to get out of Bed in the Morning that is if I sleep the night before. Forget about a pain pill because that just want happen. I'm on a Highway of never ending ups and downs. My prayers go out to each and everyone of you and I will pray for all of us.View Thread
