Diagnosed in 2000 with fibro and chronic fatigue, I find the past 2 years when I have flares I have excruciating pain in my ribcage, both sides, and my abdominal wall. Has anyone experienced this?
In 2000 I started out with Oxycontin for pain but after 3+ years of that my body became physically addicted and I wanted to get away from the other side effects of that med...........so as I tapered off Oxycontin I wore a fentanyl patch. Today I take 4 10/325 Oxycodone per day and change my fentanyl patch every 2 days, found Wellbutrin, Buspirone and Lamictal to control my depression and mood swings which started with the diagnosis in 2000 and take 10 mg. Ambien every night to sleep.
Yet during a flare there is nothing that relieves the pain to less than an 8; does anyone have the experiences I've had with pain and any suggestions, besides going back to Oxycontin, to relieve the pain? Thanks
