Thanks so much for your replies!!! I did go to the new doc today and told her EVERYTHING!!! She completely understood... She did say they like to stay away from the narcotics... But she gave me a combo I have never tried before.. Tramadol and Flexril.. I took some as prescribed lol about an hour ago and feel a bit of a difference already... i hope this combo will work.. I know I will never be completely pain free but tolorable is fine with me... Thanks and will keep you updated!!!

Oh, Angel, I'm sooo happy for you.  It always pays to be up front with your doctors.  You will have a good rapport now and can trust one another. 
There are several members taking the medications your doctor gave you today.  I'm sure they'll pop on and tell you how they are doing with them.  What works for one doesn't necessarily work for another when it comes to fibromyalgia.  I hope you lucked out and found what will let you control the pain.  If not, keep looking.  We all are on different things.
By the way, my doctor doesn't like to give out narcotics either and I've managed so far without them.   
Anyway, I'm glad you found a doctor that does understand and that you are getting help now!  Don't hesitate to ask questions about this illness.  We do have members with great suggestions that have helped them.  Hope to hear more from  you soon.
