I have Fibromyalgia and depression along with 3 herniated discs in my back and stress fractures. I also have kidney disease and high blood pressure. Some days are very hard to even get out of bed. I know what suffering with severe pain is all about About 4 months ago I saw a Gerontologist and she prescribed Cymbalta , and Tramadol twice a day. The Cymbalta has helped some. I used to be on Tramadol 4 times a day and felt much better, but because it’s a narcotic she won’t prescribe any more than twice a day. I also take Tylenol and use an ice pack and heating pad. I am 82 years old and I can’t cry with the pain because the movement makes it worse. I hope you can find some way to feel better. It helps to talk with someone or read all the post on the board.
