Hi Ronnie,
Not feeling good myself today. Some of it is because of this cold FL weather. Hope you get your X-ray results soon.

@mmussak I'm so glad the doctor worked with you… I'm a believer in "if it ain't broke don't fix it! "

@elwooodsdad I'm very curious to hear how your appointment with the Doctor went on the 10th? Lack of sleep creates a monster in me after a week. I'm not on Klonopin or Prozac because of the opioids I take. I take Trazodone but often don't sleep. Such is life!

@merpreb Hi Merry,
Gummys are an easy way to use CBD oil. The oil can be used many ways, vaped, under the tongue, and gummys. My son vapes so he asked the smoke shop guy a good way for me to try CBD oil. The gummys are like the sour patch worms candy kids like. Except they were not sour! More like Swedish fish I guess.
Any form of CBD oil should be kept away from kids and pets ( although I saw oil for pets advertised)

I recently tried CBD gummys when I was out of pain meds. While I didn't have any relief of pain, I was calmer, less anxious. That was a big plus for me as I have had terrible anxiety all my life.

@lioness The only tradition I have on New Years Day is to watch the Rose Parade. When I was a child, My parents always put it on TV and we would have a big breakfast.bacon,eggs,pancakes,oranges. We were a large 5 kids..loving family. My Dad has been gone 42 years and my mom 16 years. Well I'm rattling on. Thanks for reminding me of those times! I'll eat sauerbraten and sauerkraut anytime with you!

@parus I was without Cymbalta for a few days and it gave me some of the worst panic I've had in many years. It does work for 3 things for me– anxiety, depression and Fibro so hopefully it continues to do so. I've been at a low dose 60 mg for years. When we have so many issues, I have DDD and herniated disc, all not deemed to be surgically successful in treating. You are not whining or a dreamer..if you are then I guess I am too!
@stulerner I had a reaction to Lamotrigine/Lamictal years ago. I'm glad it's working for you.
I have not tried CBD oils yet. My medical team and I have found that because I had gastric bypass nearly 12 years ago I process medicines much differently than "normal" people. Yes, oxycodone is serious stuff but I believe it's what I need now. I've had chronic pain for 25 years now.

@anniebrook I understand completely. I too am very weary but mindful of what I take for pain relief. My pain management Doctor has now increased my Oxycodone to 15 mg 3x day. I've found that many doctors don't believe us when it comes to pain. They must understand the quality of life we have.
Have you tried the Fibro Malic that is mentioned in this thread?
