Thanks for the replies. i have had back pain for over a year now hence the Tylenol #3 been on naprosyn, baclofen, etc the tylenol is the only thing that brings mild relief. The leg pain has been a gradual things over the lasts couple of minths burning sensations, mild pain which usually would be relieved when i rested but has got increasingly worse. I was diagnosed with DDD, bulging disc from the T11 to S1 some broad based etc. Muscle spasms and feeling tired. I have had blood work done, eeg;s, and nothing comes back with bad information. I suspect fibro and i have an appointment with a rheumy on the 9th of april not sure what they are going to do but i am hoping for some kind of answers good or bad least this way i know what is what. And deal with it properly, anyway sorry for the long explaination will keep in touch. I am going to not take the cymbalta just yet till after my apointment with rheumy think that it is best. Well take care Twiggy2

Thanks Gramps i haven;t taking it yet and with that info i probably won;t now. I staying with my regular meds and waiting till my rhumey appointment. I talk about fibro as a possiblilty and for the first time on t.v the other i saw a commercial for Lycira being promoted to help releive symptoms for fibro pain i know it;s a quark but weird at that. Sorry for the bad spelling LOL anyway, feeling a bit better but still have a pain level over 5 to 7. The pain was pretty intense the only way i describe as the flu but worse. First thinking is was going through tylenol 3 withdrawel as i didn;t have any for two days ran out before getting a repeat. Then i got them and started to take them like i usually do and still had the same pain only had decreased. The weather? another possibility as it has been very damp and cold latley. Sorry rambling just trying to make sense of it all. Anyway take care and will let you know how things go with my appointment Twiggy2 Keep in touch ok.

Oh wow Twiggy, Hope your feeling better soon! Moist heating pads might be of help. I hope lyrica works for you, I threw it up and just couldn't keep it down. Lyrica helps about 30% of people with fibro so I hope your one of the 30%. Also, read some of the fibro postings in the fibro forum here it's very good and informative. What they say at my fibro meetings is what works for you might not work for someone else, we are all different. Sending you some extra soft hugz....

Thanks feeling a bit better, but somedays are ok and some are not. Nice to meet you chartreux warm baths sometimes helps soothes the pain. How long have you been diagnosed with fibro Chartreux. If you don't mind me asking. Gramps all to well i know the doc;s have a hang up about opiates, i was prescribed oxycodone a while back but my doc was hestitant. I barely touch them unless i have too and even then i found that they make me a bit sick however once about 2 months ago i went to the ER and the doc gave me percocets and told me to follow up with my GP and there was no hesitation, i guess it depends how well the doc;s are educated about them etc, and that they really believe that the person is in pain other wise they are more likely not to prescribe opiates. Hope that made sense anyway gonna try to catch some sleep, take care and keep in touch. Twiggy2

I was dx with Fibro last September, so still kinda new to it, but found a good local support group and it's not a whine and cry group either. It's a educational group and they're there to help. Try doing a google search to find a support group. I'm as stiff as an ironing board today.
Glad your feeling a little better, always nice to hear.
I take Vicodin HP 10/625 (up to three a day) and a muscle relaxer for pain, but it's not helping. Wish I could tell you what works and what doesn't but we are all different, so don't know how to advise you there, sorry.
more soft gentle hugz to you.
