Its not only the fibro I have trouble with but the fibro does make my other pain worse. Breakthrough meds are set up to take care of extra pain you might have while taking another stronger med for round the clock pain relief. My problem is that they never got close to having me at the right dose for the long lasting meds or I might have only had to take the vicodin occasionally. I cant find a pain doc to take me with medicaid thats the problem. I spent more then a few years before fibro trying to work through the pain and forget that,if there is something I can take to make me more functional and happier cause I am not thinking about
pain all day then I am all for it. If tylanol did the job then fine but it doesnt even come close. At this point in my life I dont worry about
having to get of the narcotics because I will most likely be on them until I die. If at all possible I am never going back to a life of unrelenting daily pain again. I say that if you hurt enough to have it on your mind all day long then you need help. There is no shame in getting adaquet pain relief. I am not talking about
for some minor annoying aches,that I can handle but when it consumes your thoughts and stops you from doing daily things then its time for the big guns.
