So going for my first visit to pain management Dr. Next week........I have fibromyalgia and it hits me with a vengeance. The nerve pain is unbearable!!! I take Gabapentin and Cymbalta for nerve pain. I hate Gabapentin it makes me stupid! I have no short term memory. I take Advil and 5 mg hydracodone (which barely touches my pain) for general pain. I also tend to build a tolerance to the hydracodone. I then have to stop taking it and suffer for a little so it will work again. Doing that now!
I work a full time job I'm a single mom, I'm just keeping my head above water!
I told my GP I didn't want to go to a pill mill. I live in Florida there are a ton! He explained that he also didn't want me to go to one that won't give me any pain medication. I never thought of that side. . So here I go.
Please if anyone has any advice on meds or what has helped them so I can have questions ready.
Thank all of you
