I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at the age of 37 and also had severe bone pain. About 2 years ago at the age of 51 the pain got so bad that I was having a hard time coping with getting out of bed or sitting in a chair for more than 5 minutes due to stabbing pain in my upper right back and increasing bone pain. I found out that I had 5 discs that were severely damaged. I was fused and the surgeon said I had Osteoporosis in my thoracic spine and the bones were crumbling. The fusion didn’t take and I deal with pain levels I never thought a human could live with. I tried commiting suicide about a year ago and shock therapy gave me back a will to live. I currently take opiods to be able to do basic self car, pt, and go for walks as far as I can. My quality life is very poor but I need to be here for my loved ones. I am considering a pain pump from Medtronic and wondering if anyone has had one put in and if it has worked. I am also interested in anyone’s experience with this type of unrelenting severe pain and how they deal with it. So far I eat a anti-inflamatory diet, take forteo shots for Osteoporosis, do PT, and move as much as I can. I also see a therapist weekly.I have tried Marijuana, accupunture, lyrica, Cymbalta, Biofeedback, DBT, and many other treatments, to numberous to mention here. The opiods help but I do not like the side effects or the stigma.
