I'm new to the forum, and glad to find people with similiar conditions. It's so lonely out there alone when it seems like you are the only one who hurts. Sometimes the pain is so bad that all I can think of is two words "I ache" that permeates everything I try to do.
I'm on 2300 of Neurontin and the doc just added 20 mg of Cymbalta to try. It worked for 2 days before the pain came back. It seems like whatever they give you works initially, and then you become accostomed to it and the pain returns. I also use Tramadol (Ultracet) for the pain which helps me get through. Has anyone had success (long lasting) with these meds?
And what about exercising? I would love to return to exercising, but don't know how when I am in pain??
Thanks for listening.
I am working with my first client who has Fibromyalgia and I will keep your posted on the results. I am also going to be working with a friend who has chronic back pain who is in his 70's. I have a few doctors tracking my results as well.
Fibromyalgia since 2007
