Ive been in a world wind for weeks. Today has been ok as for emotions i suppose. But pain has not left me alone at all. Im exhausted even though i had unconscious hours ( sleep) . Also feel kind of left out to dry. Im seeking help, a cure, relief , some sign that someone cares. Tired of being pushed off.told to wait be patient.

I'm the same age as you and have fibro along with a few other disorders/diseases. Are you on any medications to help with the pain? I'm sorry you are hurting and tired. I understand I truly do. I don't know you personally but I DO care. I'm glad that you were able to make this post and vent a bit. It helps to get it out. I hope you find some relief and rest tonight. Sleep well. 🌙⭐️

Thank you goobette38, i am on a number of meds lyrica, cymballta, and tramodal for breakthrough pain. Which the tramodol does not work but thr dr wont put me on any narcotics til i max out on the other meds.
I also have other medical issues that makes it very difficult to process.

I'm on Gabapentin ( Lyrica I was on for 2 years and got horrible rashes) tizanidine which is a muscle relaxer and Oxycodone. I've heard that tramadol doesn't do much for the type of pain we get. I hope your doc listens to you the next time you go and maybe tweaks what you are on so that you aren't in so much pain. I know it's super hard to be patent and wait till the next appointment when you feel like you've been run over by a train. I'm on amytripiline as well to try to rest at night when the pain is at its worst. Maybe ask about it. I know LOTS of others take it as well as part of their regiment. Good luck!
