Fibro dx in 2011. Tried the Lyrica, Flexiril, Meloxocam, and Hydrocodone. So far the Flexiril 10mg at bedtime and Hydrocodone 5mg - 7.5mg once a twice a day are the only things that have helped and that's just to get the pain tolerable so that I can continue to work and my mind not be anymore cloudy than it already is for the fibro.
I have tried acupuncture many times over the years and loved it. It has helped my stress and my acute, short term limited pain (from injuries, etc). I tried it once several years ago with no luck. I decided to give it another try. Went to a different clinician and WOW the improvement is heaven. From the very 1st treatment the pain was more than 75% improved. I have had 4 treatments over the last month and each session will last for the whole week. I was able to decrease my Flexiril and my Hydrocodone by half of what I was taking. The problem is it's $70.00 a session and my insurance won't cover it. My Flexiril is $10 for a 3 month supply of 90 pills and my Hydrocodone is $2 for 60 pills a month. Our system is SOOOO screwed up!
