hi.. I've been on pain Medes for over 10 years, I've been on the same. Dose! I feel my body is used to it, I get no relief at all anymore! I just can't seem to talk to my Dr. I hate being on pain medicine! I hate going every month, the night before my appointment, I get so much anxiety! I guess with all the stigma that goes with being on pain medicine, is why I can't speak up, I have always been a shy person who could never speak up, still can't... im on 50mg. Fentanyl 8mg. Of Diluadid, 1 & a half of Ativan, and other medicines. Being. Sick & in pain 24/7 Really stinks! I've lost all friends, most family. I suffer from Fibromyalgia, IC, IBS, TMJ, Arthritis in both feet, ankles which is deformng my feet which every step I take. Hurts! I have arthritis in both knees, hips, spine, right shoulder, I have nerve damage in both feet and legs, I have degenerative spine, buldging disc, degenerative eye disease with macular, dermatitis of my skin, I have a tear in my right shoulder, numbing in my. Hand, and pain going down both arms. Migraines. Thyroid Graves' disease. Acid reflux, insomnia, scoliosis of lower spine. I think I've covered everything! UGH! I started getting all these things when I was about 21, I got it's when I was 9 but back then there was. No word of its! It doesn't show up on any X-rays, so at 9 yrs. I was called a liar! Sorry for just ranting! I. Really need to some. How tell my dr. How bad. I'm doing, it's been. 4 yrs now I've been suffering so much more! I know after 10 yrs. being on same dose, my body has to of had to build up a tolerance... any suggestions on how I can approach this to my Dr.? Thank you for listening if you got this far... im so tired of not being able to go out! Im in my adjustable bed all day! Trying to get comfortable! I have to sleep with the back of bed half way up due to the curve in my lower back, hubby and I have not sleeper in same bed in about 10 yrs! Been married for. 22 yrs this feb. 17th. 2017 im so miserable! So tired of not having any friends! My mom is my best friend, but she suffers from many problems. My husband I don't think truly gets it, or maybe just doesn't care. I just want to feel better, get out, enjoy life. Not have to depend on everyone! I can't drive, haven't in about 8 yrs. ok, I will shut up now lol... I pray all who are suffering will find a cure or find a medication that will help. Thank you! Big soft hugs to all..
