Hi everyone! I am not new to HW, as I was diagnosed with Systematic Lupus, Lupus Nephritis, and Antiphospholipid Antibody syndrome about
3 years ago. Recently, maybe the past year or so, I have been feeling more down lately and had been having episodes where my body ached for days. My rheumy told me that fibro is often intensified with depression and it can be commonly found in lupus patients as well. All of my muscles feel tight and I am slow and achy to move all over and especially my upper back and neck. I just feel stiff and it takes a lot of mental and physical effort to get things done.
So on to my question, I have always taken oxycodone for my leg pain (I have had 3 blood clots) and klonopin if I have anxiety...I'm wondering are either of these things best for fibro pain? I can take my oxycodone for the fibro pain but I'm wondering if Klonopin might help relieve the pain better because it would relax the body? Thoughts on this and any other tips/things that help I would greatly appreciate it! xxx
