Frustrated and in pain

Oct 24, 2016 10:33 AM

Do the deal is last week I was in the midst of the start of a fibro flare when I began having unusual abdominal pain. I went to the hospital ER and found out I have another UTI. I explained to the doctor I was in a flare so she gave me two pain shots and sent me home with 5 pain pills and antibiotics.
So here I am again still in my flare two days after throwing a huge party ๐ŸŽ‰Saturday and in sooo much pain. I have taken all the OTC meds I can and they haven't helped me whatsoever. I've also tried all my at home treatments and no help.
So what do I do? I feel fourtunate enough the ER doctor gave me anything for pain the first time. I'm afraid I will be treated like a drug seeking Paiteint if I go back for help and get no help. This sucks so much I want to cry.

Ctsego, I'm sorry you are still flaring without much relief. Just try to rest and relax as much as you can while this is going on. Pamper yourself with a bubble bath or massage if you can. Hugs love & prayers things begin to improve soon for you! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒธ
