Amber Jo, I have Vicodin in my medicine cabinet but have never taken one. It's just my security blanket.
I use 600 mg. of ibuprofen with food and extra strength Tylenol for my pain. I take these at different times. I also take malic acid/magnesium for pain and fatigue. The info about these is in the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. Lastly, I started taking more vitamis D when blood work showed a deficiency and my pain is better! So, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about these things. Maybe you can get away from the narcotics.
Also, keep moving. If you sit or lay too long, you will be stiff as a board. There are some good stretching exercises in the Fibro 101 thread. Walking is another wonderful exercise.
I hope this gives you some ideas.
