I am 29 years old and was diagnosed with Scoliosis in 2004 and in June of 2011 was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia along with arthritis in my hands, back and feet.
I am a homemaker (because I can not hold a job due to the pain) with 3 children, 10 years, 8 years and a 13 month old that just started walking and getting into things 🙂 I can not "call in" sick to this job!! So I need to find something to help me!!!
I have seen 4 rheumatologists, a hematologist (due to abnormal platelet level not linked to hemaphelia) a pain management clinic where I recieved 2 injections ( that DID NOT help) and have taken Cymbalta, Lyrica, and Savella all suppose to help fibro and they did NOTHING for me!! 🙁
I have found that Vicodin is the only thing I can take that helps me! I can't find a doc who will use this as treatment 🙁
I have tried exercise ( I just hurt more later)
I have tried physical therapy ( didnt work)
I have a tens unit that I can only use while sitting still due to the fact it "shocks" me when I tighten my muscles to move.
I'm really depressed and don't know what to do!
Please...any info that anyone is willing to share is much appreciated!! Thank you
