Hi, Angel, and welcome! We have had others on this forum with the same problem you have. It is SO important to follow the doctor's directions for these narcotics. You found out that you should never take more on your own, like others have found out too. If a medication isn't doing the trick, call the doctor or make another appointment and discuss it with them. When we take things into our own hands, that's when the problem starts.
I'm really not sure what to tell you except find another doctor and be brutally honest with them. Let them know what you did and why and that you would never do that again. The doctor has to trust you so you need to assure them that you would call them if the meds were not working AND that you would follow their instructions to a "T". This is what I would do if I had this problem. If the doctor won't take you on, keep looking until you find one that will understand your circumstances.
Oh! I just thought of something else. Keep a journal, starting today, showing your pain levels and what you were doing when you had the pain. Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro AND there are links with pain charts and also a journal you can copy. The pain charts will allow you to be VERY accurate in describing your pain and this will help the doctor. Actually there are two pain charts...one has faces and that helps! You might try a pain doctor instead of a rheumatologist or internist.
I'm sorry you are having this problem but there has to be someone out there that will listen to you. BUT you really do have to follow any prescriptions just as your doctor prescribes them. They have a reason for the amounts and strengths they prescribe. Let us know what happens because we really do care!
