Hi fellow pain warriors. I'm 54. My Fibro took a bad turn 2 1/2 years ago and I'm slowly doing better after having a lot of physical therapy and nerve blocks, ablations, and massage. I've been following Dr. Skip Pridgin's protocol since 11/2018 and am feeling less pain. He's doing a large study using 500 mg of Famcyclovir 2X/day & 200 Celebrex with the morning Famvir. Google him for more info. I also take Methaxalone, Magnesium, Curcumin, D3, a good multivitamin 2X/day, HRT, Imitrex, Plaquenil (am also diagnosed with Lupus), and I just got Botox injections for my migraines. I was a long distance runner, golfer, tennis, cycler etc. etc. It's been quite an adjustment. I'm doing Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Pain which has been very helpful. Other than the constant engulfing pain, I'm happily married, have 3 grown kids and 3 older stepkids, 2 dogs, a cat, a parrot (great chatty companion), and wonderful friends. I'm not dying and try to focus on how blessed I am.

@janebaxter Welcome two Mayo Connect! You will find a lot of support here. There are many of us who struggle with fibro and assorted other combinations of maladies. Take some time to sort through discussion groups and threads of conversation. None of us are medical professionals, but we all can offer support and our experiences of what worked and didn't work for us!

@tfrancis….Terry, do you mind me asking how you.deal with your pain? I too have RA and fibro and know the pain from that. Not so much pancreatitis. I hear that too is quite painful. Sounds like life is no picnic for you. But, many here share their struggles and occasionally their victories. Welcome. I am new too.

@juliet80…..yep. Migraine 24/7. Every. Single. Day. Pain level varies a little, but always hurts. I sympathize. 😢 Head banger caused by trigeminal neuralgia and cerebellar stroke. Brain damage. Do you know why you are suffering migraines? Back pain from an injury?

@juliet80….yep. It sucks. Excedrine migraine is not helpful alone, but I combine it with aspirin, advil. Minimal help, but I'll take it. And yes. Could be hormonal.
