Hi, am thankful I found this group. I have not had anyone to talk to who understands what I am going thru.
I have fibo/chronic fatigue/ nerve damage in back . I have been in such horrible pain from a flare up this past month that I am about to go out of my mind.
I go see my doctor again soon. Right now he gives me 3 lortabs a day...5 mg. Sooo does not cover the pain. Some days when Im not in a flare up then yes it would but right now its taking 3 of the 5 mg's to just get me out of bed.
I am thinking of asking him if he would increase it to 10 mg. That would be more helpful and maybe they would last me all month. At the same time I am scared becasue wonder if he says " well no I cant do that and perhaps we need to stop taking the lortabs completly" I dont know what I would do.
I do feel like im going crazy from this pain. Its all over , all of the time.
The Er here is horrible also ( I was reading some of the other post ) I was treated like a drug addict. They were so rude to me. What gives them the right? why do they have that job if they are just going to be mean to people. It makes me so upset I cannot stand it.
My family does not understand. Infact they are getting sick of me being sick. My live in bf gets mad everyday because I dont feel like watching a movie or whatever...the stress makes me worse. Much worse I think. If I could get my own place I would but financially I cant. I think living alone would be the best thing for me. Im tired of having to push myself to do things for others just so they wont get mad at me which only upsets me more.
I usually start to get depressed after a flare up last for a while.
Do you think I should ask my Primary Care doctor to up my lortabs to 10 mg or do you think that could push him to giving me none?
Thanks for lisening. Kinda felt good to talk about whats going on with me without being put down :)
