- DX FIBRO
My fibro pain has been increasing a lot here lately. My doctor has me doing small exercises to keep my body in motion, but I am in so much pain while doing them. I really need something to limit my pain during the day so I can keep active and healthy. The only medications I am on are cymbalta and flexeril. I am not fond of the flexeril(muscle relaxer). I can only take it at night which does help me sleep, but I need something to get me through the day. Plus I do not like the way the muscle relaxers make me feel like a zombie. I really want a low dosage of a pain medicine just for my bad parts of the day, but my doctor seems totally against it. I have not brought it up to her, but she has already mentioned that she wants to stay away from it. I feel like the only reason she wants to keep me off of it is because of how it is abused. I am just in so much pain and I really need something. What should I do? should I bring it up to my doctor? Should I try a new doctor?
