I know I have been writing on here much. I've been in flare after flare after flare for some time now. Started on lyrica about a month ago. My neurologist wrote out a prescription for fentanyl patch, but frankly that scares the crap out of me.
I am In so much pain from the top of my head to the bottoms of my feet, that I really cannot hardly stand it.
We are slowly upping my lyrica since I only weigh 115. I hope I can stay that way. I've heard several say that they've gained weight while on lyrica.
As of now, I take aptiom, lyrica, effexor and lortab for my fibromyalgia. Embrel and folic acid for RA, dicyclomine for IBS, protonics for G.I Issues, pilocarpine for dry mouth due to sjögrens, and ropinerole for RLS, and lots of suppliments. 😕
My doctors are all scratching their heads trying to figure out what else to do for me.
I'm so tired of life passing me by while I sit in this chair praying for the pain to ease.
Sorry, just had to unload a bit.
I'm curious what you all do for pain. I don't have a pool or hot tub, and there isn't anywhere to go for a yoga class since I live an hour from the next city with a fitness center.
