I had one experience with a pain management doc that didn't go very well. I knew when he said, "if you do have fibromyalgia", that we weren't going to get along. I had been dxd by one of his partners and a rheumy.
I was lucky enough to get by on 100 mg amitriptyline and tylenol for years but the past couple weeks I have relented and taken a little vicodin when the pain is really bad and it does take the edge off. This fall has really been bad for me but I'm also doing things I don't normally do in the house but need to be done.
Good luck finding the help you need.
luv and hugs
