Thank you for all of your of kind replies.
My mom has been on Perocet for 15 years. Before that Tylenol 4 for I don't know how long. She was originally given Percocet by her current (btw her doctor is a she ;)) doctor to take 4 x a day. When my mother was first diagnost with Fibromyalgia, her doctor refused to up the dose to 6 until she went to a conference in Boston, this was like 6 years ago. When she upped the dose she told her she wouldn't give her anything else and practually through the script at my mom. This is probably why she's afraid to ask her. Add on to the fact on what happened to me when doctors can just take a patient off their medication with a snap of their hands.
My mother is at the point where evertime someone touches her she says "Oww."
I will go with her to her next appointment. Though she's a bit apprehensive about me going for some reason. If her doctor refused to up her dose of Perocet, I wonder if there are drugs to take along with her current dose to make her comfortable.
