So my husband is in the army and I have tricare insurance. I have come back to Georgia from California about
2 weeks ago and have had a humidity and heat induced flare every since... So, I have been to my primary care who sent referrals to pain specialist Rheumatologist and behavioral health. She prescribed me percoset and Lyrica, which i told her i couldnt take lyrica due to some side effects. (tried so many cant remember what the side effect was now... memo to keep a book on side effects not just pain).
I have also been to ER twice in a week with pain so bad i cant walk... they tell me they dont treat chronic pain and give me toradol and send me packing. Toradol worked before, but these last two times i have noticed a bad side effect of muscle tremors all over my body for hours.. it wasnt too terribly bad the first time just annoying and kept me up for a bit , but this last time it was terrible.
i think our bodies have a way of building sensitivities to drugs and chemicals where its not bad at first but gets really bad the more you use it.
Anyhow, my referral just came back, and i called for a pain appt only to find out that they dont treat fibromyalgia patients. What the heck kind of pain management doesnt treat fibromyalgia, and not have any ideas of doctors that do??? I am so upset and in pain I am ready to give up!
Thanks all for listening.... i am on here lurking most days... and all the information and shared experiences makes me feel at home with people who understand.
