I was put on 2 meds for my fibromyalgia and I ran out of one can't get more till I see pain doctor next week. My body has been killing me all week. Strange how one pill can help.

Shanna1979, I'm sorry you're hurting. What are you taking for the fibro? Are you trying any alternatives? Are you in a flare up? Usually my flares are harder even with meds. I originally took cymbalta, but due to a genetic defect that makes me unable to metabolize benzodiazepine and other meds; I have a huge allergy list. They had me on gabapentin, but took me off due to tremors they thought were related. The tremors address worsening. Anyway I'm using Tramadol, Aleve, hear pads voltaren gel, ice packs when I can tolerate it, and resting. When I overdo it the pain is worse. I hope you can find a way to get some relief. Praying for you! 🙏🌼

No matter what, always ensure you have enough pills. Even if you are out, you have the right to go ER to get prescribed some. No one should live with that much pain.
