Hi, I am new here too, and everyone seems so nice. There is a lot of good information in the other posts you can read (which I am still going through) that may help you feel better. Have you ever tried a pain patch? I use Fentanyl Pain Patch, and it does a great job with the pain. I have oxycodone for 'break-thru' pain, but have not had to use the pain pills for a long time now. I am also trying a new treatment plan that I talk about in another post titled 'Fibro and Fatigue Centers'.
The new treatment plan involves supplements, IV therapy, and hormones. Ultimately, I would like to come off all the prescription meds I have been on because I have been taking them for so long. Unfortunately, my insurance does not cover supplements, IV therapy, and natural hormone replacement therapy. It seems crazy that my insurance will cover treating my symptoms forever with narcotics that make me sicker (and no cure), but won't cover supplements that make me feel better (and a possible 'cure').
