Hi Cortopia,

I am sorry that I can't help you with this, but I would like to welcome you to the forum.

You have come to a great place and everybody here is so kind and understanding.

If you do get a chance, check out fibro101, the second post on the forum. It does have a lot of information and reassurance in it.

I hope that you are haveing painfree day.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Cortopia and welcome. I'm a retired military wife with Tricare, so glad I don't have to deal with the system as active duty anymore. Where are you stationed??? I didn't get fibro until well after hubby retired so I haven't had to deal with the system and fibro thank God. We do get our meds on base but I'm switching to mail order.
Ask questions and read and we will do all we can to help you.
luv and hugs
