No time restrictions when to vent...anytime is the right time...hugs.
How has your sleep been...? I notice when I have one too many restless nights, insomnia my pain increases tenfold.
If so, ask your about about a FMS prescription regime for your sleep..such as Lyrica, combined with Mobic, Flexeril, Elavil and Lortab. That helped me through a rough, sleepless time earlier this year.
Lyrica is used to control seizures, treat nerve pain and fibromyalgia. It is the first FDA-approved treatment that can help relieve fibromyalgia pain
Lortab is a narcotic pain reliever (aceteminophen & hydrocodone)
Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) is a muscle relaxant. It works by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain
Elavil (amitriptyline) is a trycyclic antideppressant. It is helpful for improving sleep. Elavil has been found to lose effectiveness over time. Other tricyclics include desipramine (Norpramin), doxepin (Sinequan), imipramine (Tofranil), amoxapine (Asendin), and nortriptyline (Pamelor, Aventyl.
Mobic is an anti-inflammatory.
Sleep and exercise play a very important role with fibromyalgia symptoms. When I get good sleep from flexeril and swam this summer for exercise, I felt almost wonderful. My wonderful. My norm.
Daniel Wallace, M.D. also published a book on fibromyalgia, called All About Fibrimyalgia. Check it out...
Home remedies, try massage, bath soak...heating pad, thermapads from the drug store...acupuncture....
Are you building a tolerance to your pain medication?
Can you modify your work to help alleviate the pain afterwards? Is it your work that is the cause, trigger..aggravates?
Do you get a form of daily exercise, even if it is just stretching...swimming, yoga, pilates...walking. Idle bones and muscles create more aches in the long run.....
I have Lupus. So *^#@! what.
