My rhuemy on Monday told me that she was sorry. That she knows I have half a dozen diseases already but that today she was adding a new diagnosis- fibromyalgia. (My primary tried to diagnosis me last year with it and I fought him on it). I explained to her that I did t want that diagnosis and that people who have it are brushed off and not believed. I told her that I wasn't even sure I believed I had it, as I think all the joint pain and swelling come from my multiple autoimmune diseases. She stuck to her guns and after a long talk, I ended up with yet another diagnosis to add to my list of crappy shit to have!!! So I have been in pain management almost 2 years and take Oxycodone 4x a day, Gabapentin 3x a day , and tizanidine 3x a day. Now the rhuemy talked with my PM and I'm taking Oxycodone 4x a day, Tizanidine 3x a day , Gabapentin 3x a day (upped dose to 400 mg pills) AND added Lyrica 2x a day.
Has anyone here ever taken Gabapentin and Lyrica together?? Even the pharmacist said it was odd and he's only seen it once or twice.
