Opiates for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome What You Need to Know About Narcotics


Opiates for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

What You Need to Know About Narcotics

I take Percocets. I still suffer pain, but without it, things are much worse. I do my best to keep my doses on time. I keep a list with the times I should take them and when I actually do so no taking too early.

Bipolar Disorder 1 under control for over 6 months now with this new medicine cocktail


Aside from the Cymbalta this is the only other cocktail that has worked. Sometimes I miss the mania, but basically it is better without it and all the mood changes.

And this one lets me sleep. No real side effects and sleep. Some days though I sleep way more than necessary, but I take it. I don’t want to mess with this cocktail and screw it up trying to make it better.

Bankruptcy court April 16th in a town I hate to drive in and includes highways which really scare me.

Next epidural is April 17th and on the neck this time. Back is not taking. She says she has other things we can try besides the surgery so I am to quit worrying about that for now. Neck is getting worse and have a problem with numbness (or pins and needles as it should be called).

Still nothing from public housing about the apartment.

Are alternative healings just the placebo effect?


As I have mentioned my dad has done faith healing for as long as I can remember and his people that received the healings (including me) believed they were being healed. I am well aware of the placebo effect and I can’t say for sure that he is healing me or that I just expect to feel better. I believe the point is that it helps and I don’t need a scientific ruling to say it is true or false. I accept that I feel better, therefore his healing helped.

Healing can be done hands-on or from afar. Reiki is one of those types of healings.

Fibromyalgia Pain From Clothing


Fibromyalgia Pain From Clothing

People find this hard to believe that clothing can cause a Fibromyalgia flare.

I wear loose bras and clothing. Preferably nothing tight. I don’t care what people think if it helps relieve my pain.

Is Fibromyalgia Hereditary?


Is Fibromyalgia Hereditary?

My daughter and I definitely have it and I worry about symptoms I often see in my son. Hopefully he is just having similar symptoms.

The daughter with Fibro also has all of my other awful disorders and lots of pain besides the new pain from the accident at work where the cabinet fell off the wall and injured quite severely her hand and arm. They still don’t know what the problem is and she is dealing with workman’s comp and a lawyer.

Problems Showering With Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


Problems Showering With Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I am lucky that hot water does not cause me pain. I wish a hot bath was possible. Besides not having a tub, my pain will not allow me to get in and out of a tub. A shower is all I can manage. Not sure what this new apartment will have. It is a senior complex so who knows.

Can Fibromyalgia Cause Chest Pain and Shortness of Breath?


Can Fibromyalgia Cause Chest Pain and Shortness of Breath?

Here is an article I found in New Life Outlook.

99% of my chest pain trips to the Emergency Room are usually linked to my Fibromyalgia. It is impossible to tell if it is a real heart attack or not. I am so afraid one of these days it will be my heart and it will be the one time I don’t go to the ER.
