My name is Jenny. I have had chronic pain disorders for over the past 10 years. I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 1999 and it has been a struggle with multiple surgeries and synthetic menopause, etc. I have also battled chronic migraines since I was 16. You don't want to hear all my little...
I'm 25 yrs old and I have a 3 yr old son and a wonderful husband. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in November although I have had chronic pain for 8 years. I'm currently on 100 mg of Lyrica, 10 mg of Flexeril, and 100 mg tramadol extended release. I am not a fan of pain...
I guess I will start off saying that I am lactose intolerant, have IBS, have had my left ovary removed when I was 18, ganglion cycst removed from my left wrist, tonsils removed at age 25, hernia surgery in the exact spot that my ovary was removed, diagnosed with dry eye, have lipomas & have had...
Well, here it is three days before Christmas, and I am desperate for a little human understanding - I have my Schnauzers and Chihuahua to provide creature comfort, it does help, but it isn't the same. I swore I wouldn't do this until after Christmas, because it just doesn't seem to be in the...

I finally got to see a doctor. More tests are in order, but I have nerve damage for sure. They are talking about different options. They don't want me on the Vicodin anymore. Lyrica has been brought up.
My sister said she fel that Lyrica was a drug that you had to keep taking. That once you...

Hello I was diagnosed with fibro on 11-26-2013 and having a hard time accepting my diagnoses. I have other illness: diabetes, asthma, chronic back pain, and might have RSD in my right...
I was diagnosed with FMS several years go after a surgery that I never seemed to recover from. It took many frustrating dr visits, a multitude of tests, and years of fighting to get the treatment that works for me. While I do not have my entire life back, I am at a place where I can function...
Although I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia for a number of years yet, I also have ankylosing spondylitis which has been focused as spinal arthritis (now defined as D.I.S.H. in some spinal areas) and thus my pain relief has been focused on both as they interact, not specifically on the FM...
