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.
I struggle daily with various pains but usually push through and continue to work my 8hour days at work. More and more recently I am struggling with not only the physical tiredness but the mental tiredness. I spend most of my days complaining how tired I feel get home and physically feel like I can’t move or do anything else. I cannot seem to shake this feeling
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.

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
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. Too many times I end up grabbing something from the freezer or eating processed food that has way too much sodium and fat, just to satisfy hunger. Living by myself aggravates the… read more
