- DX FIBRO
Just a quick hello. i have been dealing with FM for about 14 1/2 yrs--at least that is when i started needing Rx pain medications. I think I have had symptoms for years, they were just mild enough at times to pass off as something else. Bladder issues were not mild, but i found ways to tolerate them. I have gone from 1 darvocet with an excedrine a day---to 5 norco and 4 soma and meloxicam for arthritis. i have recently started using a pain patch----Butrans---it has been wonderful to NOT wake up in pain every day. I still have a lot of fatigue, though. I hae been trying something new to see if it will help eliminate some of my pain and fatigue. I know I need to eat better and get some exercise--but i never can tell when i have over done it--until it is too late. I guess when i get on a role, I don't want to stop.
