Melinda, Robinhood and Fribster........welcome to the forum. Thanks for all joining in and thank you Melinda for posting your thread. You have gotten a lot of interesting and informational responses. You will find that among these wonderful members. They all care!
I have had foot pain from fibromyalgia for about
six years and I can tell you it is no picnic. It is mostly on the tops of my feet and it feels like I have broken bones all over. I take Percocet 10/650 every four hours for the pain. It helps me tremendously. I am pretty used to it now, so my brain doesn't feel like "mush" like you say, but it makes me tired sometimes, I'll admit.
I too, use a wheelchair whenever I have to go somewhere that requires a lot of walking. My wonderful son in law just bought me one and it has been a Godsend and has allowed me to go places I had given up on before.
I hope you contact your doctor with the wonderful suggestions the others have posted about
trying other methods while you are coming off the oxycodone. Particuarly, I agree with Freya and hope you find a therapist to talk to about
coping with your pain. That is an excellent suggestion.
Good luck, sweetheart and please keep us posted on how you are doing.
