Pain relief

Postby tenchigirl87 » Mon May 20, 2013 1:49 pm

I'm 25 and was only diagnosed about 16 months ago with fibro.
I have been told for the last year that I have basically tried all of the pain medication available!
I take nortriptyline daily but other than that I'm not taking anything for daily pain relief.
I have tried tramadol, coedine, paracetamol, ibuprofen, nefopam, amytriptiline...
I think thats all of the ones i Have tried, and have basically been told there's nothing else I can do.
The nortryptyline takes the edge off, but I have bad days about 4 times a week now which means I struggle to move at all.
I think my GP has simply given up!
Help?

You could ask to be referred to your area's Pain Clinic/Services to see if they can help you. You could also look into whether a TENs machine might be helpful.

Hi,

I was diagnosed roughly the same time as you, I have tried all the meds available for fibro as you have. I was then sent to a pain clinic by my gp, as suggested by someone else here. They put me on duloxetine ( cymbalta) along with pregablin and Celebrex. I hope this gives you a suggestion. For the record I too am still in pain but without these meds, I'd be immobile. Take care and I hope this helps. X

I also use an electric blanket on my bed at night and during the day when I need to sleep. This really helps with the pain. X

Hi and :welcome: to the forum, I take pregablin (lyrica) after having tried the others. Sometimes its the combination of medications that can give some relief so ask your doc about that and also throwing in some complementary treatments into the mix may help. Have you tried heat on the areas that are particularly affected on any given day :?: :?: :?: :?:

Gabapentin seems to work for me I take 100 mg 4 times a day and you can increase up to 800 mg a day if needed. I sometimes take Ibuprofen with it a night to help me sleep as I only wake at night when in pain. Ask your GP about it.
