I am glad you are feeling better. I am like you, I am deathly afraid of tking meds too. I am always so afraid of what they may do to me, and then getting hooked to them. I took Tylenol PM for a while, but I was like you, I was scared I was taking them to much, so I stopped. I dont even take regular Tylenol anymore, I used to take so many of them when I first hurt so bad, and I started having stomach problems. Stomach problems come with Fibro, but at the time I didnt know I had Fibro. So, of course, I freaked out. I thought I had done it to myself by taking Tylenol. So, I never take it. I dont take Aleve either. All my docs I went to told me to take it. Ever single time, they would say that. I took it all the time and it never worked. So, I dont ever take that either! When I get sick, I usually never take anything, I ride it out because I hate taking meds!
Sorry! When I get going, I dont stop for nothing! Anyways,
