Hi! I'm new too :-)

I'm married, 29, no kids yet.. and got diagnosed in 2007 but believe I've had fibro since I was about 7.

It looks to be a good place to be doesn't it?!

Hope you find all the help and support you need xx

You'll find that we're all on a very varied mix of things paul. The thing about FM is, as well as it affecting us all so very differently, altho a med may work well for one of us, it may not be the case for another, so we need to work our way thru the various options and combo to find the right mix to help us :facepalm: :facepalm: Altho the specialist you spoke to said morphine is no good, for some fibromites it could be the one thing that does make a difference.

This linky has got info about meds, treatments etc maybe having a look thru it could give you some possible idea to try and see how they help you :dunno: :dunno:

Hi
I think a lot of the docs dont like to put you on morphine long term and knowing that fibro is going to be a long term illness also your body does get used to a lot of meds and you will find that the dose has to keep being increased.

I used to be on the patches and had to keep increasing the dose, then started to wear 2 patches, in the end i had to be weaned of them.

A lot of us start off on Amitriptyline as that helps with pain and sleep and its also an anti-depressant.
Gabapentin and pregabalin is another common meds widely used, but again its trail and error as what works for one might not work for another. Its just as case of trying them until you find one or a combo that suits you.

You will prob need a combo of meds to help with the different symptoms.
Any questions just ask. :wave: (have a read around the treatments & meds threads)

I get pain in my hands, for me it feels like burning hot needles are being pushed thru the middle of my bones, and the throbbing in my wrists is the furnace that is making the needles hotter and hotter :yikes: :yikes: :facepalm: :facepalm:
