Hi everyone.
Sorry I havent been around. My computer died and couldnt replace it right away.
I have missed the forum and all of you very much.
As far as whats going on with me:
I am in pain. big shocker aye?
I just went to pm docs and they didnt want to increase my meds. I got some trigger point inj in my neck. Its really sore. I have been realy struggling emotionally. Its been a hard time. started increasing my cymbalta dose to 90 mgs. I hope that helps.
How are all of you doing?

Not doing great here, but not too bad. Just high pain as usual.

I'm so sorry that your doctor won't increase your medication. I seem to get very down emotionally when I need an increase because the higher pain affects my emotions.

Why don't they want to give you an increase? I don't get doctors. You need to live your life. The doctor doesn't life life in pain every day. Ugh. Frustrating.

I'll keep you in my prayers! Thank you for updating.

Hey Melissa!

We're glad to have you back with the Family. It's very rough going when your doctor isn't willing to give you the best quality of life he/she can. Hopefully the Cymbalta will ease some of the pain as well as the stress of it all.

Warmest hugs and glad you're back!

  Dear Melissa,

   I am so glad your back. I have to say you had me wondering where you had gone to! I am glad all is well and you have internet access / computer again. Welcome Back!
