hello it;s been a while since ive posted but thought i would check in and say hi. still have lots of pain was hoping the new change of meds would have helped but of course no luck. Been on Cymbalta for a few months now and the pain did seem better at first but has come back to be the same as before.  Still trying to manage the fact that i have fibromyalgia im always so tired even when i sleep. Scheduled to have surgery on my right wrist for tendonitis on June 14th i wish it would just go away and never come back. my family is understanding but i feel like i can be doing more for them yet other days i just cant. its difficult i know my limitations most of the time but i usually push past them and end up hurting more and not being well educated on the fibro i guess i dont know things i should and shouldnt do well will try to post again soon take care Twiggy2

Hey I was wondering whats 'hydromorpcontin'? I mean hydromorphone is dalaudid, so it almost seems the med you have listed in your signature is part dalaudid par oxycontin lol, what is that exaclty? I have honestly never heard of it and I've been on all of the stronger drugs and really not many of the weaker drugs. And I would assume this is a stronger drug.
