So! Been awhile... but here's a quick update.

So I started back full time at my job, But couldn't cut it, so i got moved down to part time, which isn't enough for me to live. My doctors won't give me any pain-meds, which I think sucks.

What are you opinion of pain meds for fibro? They don't want me to go on any since I'm so young, but my pain rating is often at 6... and it hovers there most of the day... it's actually really difficult to function at times.

Mmm.. I dunno what to do really... just playing it by ear... looking for other options of employment. yada yada yada...

What other things are you doing besides pain meds? Are you on any SSRI medication? Have you tried the malic acid + magnesium protocol? Do you do any stretching, exercise or yoga? Have you tried heat, massage, hot tubs, muscle rubs and over the counter analgesics? Do you have any support people or family? Just trying to figure out if you have some other forms of help...
