Hydrocodone

Hydrocodone

Ibuprofen alone is not effective on my pain. Since stopping Hydrocodone over a year ago I am reduced to being in pain a lot of the time and not accomplishing as much. I need to be somewhat functioning to deal with this Fibro...not exhausted and hurting all the time.

Do The Tens Units They Sell At Stores Work?

Do The Tens Units They Sell At Stores Work?

I am so so physically and emotionally exhausted from my pain.
When I go to physical therapy, they first put me on a tens unit with a heating pad over it.
Good lord does it ever feel good!!!
It eases my pain tremendously.

I am super curious to know if the ones you can buy at stores, actually give you relief?
I can't afford to waste my money, but if it works I will save every penny.

How Do You Lift Yourself Up From Feeling Hopeless?

How can maintain a sense of hope when there isn't any left. I've exhausted so many different medications for nausea, vomiting, pain, I feel like a human science experiment.

I Often Don't Feel I Have The Strength Or Concentration To Communicate...sorry.

I Often Don't Feel I Have The Strength Or Concentration To Communicate...sorry.

I can see that 'the chronic pain team' is an excellent resource even by the scant bits I have managed to read..
My big problem is that the pain I am experiencing makes me exhausted and unable to concentrate or focus on stuff like reading..writing..listening..
It is not that I am being ignorant or anti social its just that I am nearly always in a state of agitation ,defensiveness and ...anger.
I try to not let this negativity… read more

Would Love Suggestions For Quick, Easy, Healthy Meal Preparation For Evening.

Would Love Suggestions For Quick, Easy, Healthy Meal Preparation For Evening.

I try to eat healthy and to lose weight but I am not too successful with either. I can manage breakfast and lunch pretty well, but by dinner time I am exhausted, my knee and back pain are at their worst, and I find it hard to prepare a healthy, low calorie meal.
