Thank-you Katie for writing. Yes, I have been diagnosed many times with this, but I guess I thought they were wrong. Seems that when they can't find anything else, that is what they say you have. I am in so much pain, and I haven't heard anyone with fibro complain as loudly about pain as I am. But, with joining this forum, I may find out I am wrong. I also have degenerative disc disease, I also have bursitis in my hips, that hurts so bad I cry. Can't lay on the hip in bed. My bed hurts! And, I have made it as soft as I can!
I have had every blood test there is, then they happily look at me & say "all your labs are normal!" And send me on my way. Like I am supposed to be glad. I look at them like, "but, I am in so much pain!
I feel like these doctors don't believe me. There are so many people that abuse pain pills that doctors won't prescribe anymore. I am allergic to so many drugs, the only thing that I can take is Demerol, which is not a strong, but now they won't give me anymore. I have never been a person who would want pills for the HIGH! And, I was only given 1 a day! So, I am glad I did this, I live with my daughter now, because 2 yrs ago I started hurting all over, and couldn't work anymore, and my poor daughter doesn't know what to tell me anymore or how to help me. I have been on Lyrica numerous times before, and has done nothing for the pain. What else is there? I am so tired from lack of good sleep, and so tired od 24/7 pain. I am never out of pain. Thanks for listening. Tell me what else I can do.
