Jan 29, 2018 · fibromyalgia pain in Chronic Pain

I have Fibromyalgia and have suffered with symptoms all my life. Now it’s caught up with me & I’m losing the battle. I take Gabapentin for pain and my RLS. It does help with the RLS and so i don’t want to change, but I’ve gained 50 pounds because of the side effects. I hate not being able too do what i used to and now i hate who i am weigh all this weight and no help too get it off. I have almost every symptom of Fibromyalgia and am still trying to work full time. And this last month I’ve hit a me problem that you all need to be aware of. I take hydrocodone and my term life insurance came due so i was going to convert it to whole life. I’ve been turned down for any policy with this company soley because i use hydrocodone. This witch hunt on opiates has gone too far!

I’m interested in the diet & also have not heard of night shade family. Do you take Gabapentin? I’ve gained 40 pounds & my Dr’s are not helping me to lose weight! Does anyone have help to lose weight while taking gabapentin????

Hi. Congress is having USDA do a study on how many people are opiate addicts. The HUGE problem with the study is that they are throwing heroine on with opiate addicts & deaths. It’s going to be so off!!! They need to separate heroine from other opiates to make the study more accurate!
So with that & the CDC giving doctors to either not/stop subscribing opiates for long term illnesses. They are totally clueless how much hell we go through every day! There are meds that can help our chronic pain but Congress is taking them away from us. We all need to enlighten our Congress members that we NEED good pain meds! I have hydrocodone for break through pain but cannot get more than 30 pills per month. Not near enough for my bad days–usually winter is a lot worse! Now my daily pain med is Nucynta. It is an opiate but it does not have the bad side effects like the others. No ups & downs. After a couple weeks it helped stable my pain

Hi. So sorry you feel so down!! Do you see a psychologist? They would listen to you and they could prescribe meds for you. Just keep your primary Dr. Informed if you get new meds. I don’t know if you could try Nucynta xr or not with your surgery. But it has helped with my pain. After about 2 weeks it stabilized my pain do I can usually deal with it. I still have break through pain with my fibromyalgia so I take hydrocodone for that. The Nucynta is an opiate but it does not have the side effects like the others. And I don’t have the highs & lows like I do with hydrocodone.
I also started taking EHT Vitamins from Nerium International. I love them. They give me a little energy without shakes like caffeine. I can send you info or you can look at my web site. Since I’m a new member I can’t list it here.
It’s dorothyheim”DOT”nerium with “DOT”com at the end. Hope you know what I’m trying to say about my web site.
I have SAD and this February I was not snapping out of it. I started taking the EHT and on a week & a half I woke up one morning & totally different–totally snapped out of the SAD! It also helps me at work to be able to concentrate & comprehend better. I only take one a day, but my friends take 2 a day. It also helps me when I get to sleep, it helps me stay sleep all night through. It’s been helping my friend’s father-in-law with his Parkinson’s so he walks with less shuffling and he can communicate with them now!
I wish you much happiness!!
