always waiting to see

Opiates for Fibromyalgia


Opiates for Fibromyalgia

I take opiates for the problems with my spine more-so than Fibromyalgia and so I don’t know if they are doing anything for the Fibro or not. Right now they aren’t helping my back and spine either. Since having the 6 facet joint injections in the spine the pain has been much worse. No  help at all for the most part. I have to see if they have a higher dose and if she will prescribe it. Since I take psyche and anxiety meds they don’t like to mix them as they are more dangerous in combination.
