If your doctor is going to give you any pain meds at all, which some of them don't, he/she will probably start you out with tramadol or vicodin. This is good though, because you have leeway to go up. It is easy to build a tolerance to pain medications, and if you start too high on the scale, there is no where to go. I do know people that take oxycontin and dilaudid which are the stronger ones and they are doing well. But starting out lower would be better in the long run.
As was stated above, you will always have some pain. Even with narcotic pain relievers, some feel that nothing works completely.
And as also stated above, I wouldn't ask for any specific pain med because the doc does think you are drug seeking. That is the hard thing about
fibromyalgia, as it is kind of a silent disorder.
I hope that you find what works for you.
Best wishes for a painfree energetic day. And do keep moving, if you don't, you will be in much more pain. Getntle stretching helps me, and walking.
