I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 20 years ago. Nothing I have tried has helped the constant pain. My doctor will only give me Fioricet without codeine. I also have postherpetic neuralgia after a bad case of shingles 3 years ago. Every night I take a Fioricet, 3 Tylenol PMs and a small glass (or 2) of brandy to help me sleep. I know I’m headed down a bad road cuz my husband tells me my respirations are very slow and shallow while sleeping (about 10-12/min) and it’s very hard to wake up in the am. But I feel so desperate to escape the pain for a few hours that I’m willing to take chances. i’m too chicken to go out and get some of the good stuff on the streets!
