    Hello all. I'm new to this sort of thing. I don't have anywhere else to turn. I was in a car accident in 2008 and have been dealing with chronic full body pain since then. I am only 31 and have 3 children. Some days I can't even walk let alone clean or work. Over the years I have visited numerous types of doctors, had MRIs, X-rays, and all that. The doctors act like they don't care and try to...

    Med withdrawal misery

    3
    I 've become severely allergic to my dihydrocodeine and am having to stop cold turkey. It's been 3 days 14hrs so far and I feel like death. I've had to stop everything i was on this year, one by one, due to severe allergy and the dhc was my last pain pill. At times I hate fibromyalgia and how weird it is.Anyone had experience coming off opioids? Or other meds?

    Can it be

    Ok.. I went to the dentist today I have been having bad pain on my bottom left side of my teeth.. They did X-rays showed nothing. He did his exam and tapped and poked around. He couldn't find any reason for the pain. No cavity. So he prescribed me an antibiotic and said that should take care of it to call back after a week if not. I told him I have fibromyalgia could the pain be connected to...

    Just wanted to check in. Been checked out of my life here for a few days at least. I've always been a list maker. When Fibro began to suck in my life, I tried to alter my lists. Like so many of you, I have lost most of my life, or altered it in some way. They say it's the change of seasons that has increased my pain to (OH MY GOD I WANT TO DIE, WILL IT EVER END!). For 2 weeks now, I have wanted...

    Have missed writing a few days mostly because I've been constantly driving the last few days. (Oh yippee, one of my least favorite things. And I used to love long drives -now I just feel like a fat sardine crushed into a clown car). Doctor appointments, one car, hubby works 2 hours away, dr. 2 hrs away the other direction. As I mentioned before, season change has left me breathless with pain....

    Hi everyone. I wanted to give an update on my memory loss. I had a cat scan done on my head and everything looked good. I am thinking to myself then the only thing it can be is the Lycria. This is the only medicine I have taken new this year. Lycria gave me back my life and now it has taken my mind. I tried to back off myself this entire week. I decreased the dosage and then I...
  • I found a really interesting article which led me to several more interesting articles when you get to the bottom you can click and read more articles. I used to read read read read and research a ton about FM and CFS and then over the last 5 years or so I dwindled down to barely anything because everything I read seemed to be same old thing or false hope. BUT now I found some cool new...

    Hi there. I am new to this site. Not sure where to start. Have fibro and other auto-immune conditions. Am an artist, writer and musician so spend a lot of solitary time creating but would like to connect with others who have chronic pain issues to share ideas, advice, stories etc. One of the most frustrating aspects to this illness is the isolation. I am by nature a gregarious person but...

    Cane/Walking stick

    I think I need one, too many episodes of weakness, dizziness, blackouts, and generally feeling like I can't feel the ground when I walk. I want to know how many others use one and age started using one. i'm 39, I guess I'm a tad nervous of people staring at me, although strangers are easier to accept stares from than real life friends/family. I know I need it I just don't want to explain it to...
