HI AS IT TURNS OUT I MISSED THIS NEW MEMEBER AREA TO POST AND I POSTED MY NEWBIE MESSAGE, IN THE GENERAL BOARD AREA. I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH FM ALMOST THREE YEARS AGO. IT ALL STARTED WHEN I WAS 24 YEARS OLD AND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH EBV. I AM NOW 53.
I LOVE ALL THESE SUPPORT SITES I AM FINDING FOR FM
I ALSO LOVE MEETING NEW PEOPLE. ESPECIALLY FRIENDS THAT ARE GOING THROUGH THE SAME THINGS THAT I AM.
I JUST STARTED GOING BACK TO MY ORIGINAL PAIN DR. I HAD SWITCHED FOR ABOUT THREE WEEKS TO A NEW CHEAPER DR. THAT WAS ALSO CHEAPER. BUT IT TURNS OUT SHE DOESN'T REALLY LISTEN AND FOR SOME CRAZY REASON SHE SCARES ME. SHE DIDN'T USE B/T MEDS AND I NEED B/T MEDS.
HOWEVER IT SEEMS LIKE I RUINED THE DRS MINDSET ON ME. HE WON'T UP THE MGS OF THE MS CONTIN I AM NOW ON. HE KEEPS TRYING TO TELL ME I HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO ACCEPT THIS. WELL THAT IS SOMETHING I DON'T THINK I WILL EVER BE ABLE TO DO.
HE IS NOT TAKING ME OFF THE MEDS HOWEVER THANK GOD. AS HE PUTS IT SO I DON'T WITH DRAW.
iN THE BEGINNING WHEN I MET HIM HE ACCEPTED THE FACT THAT I DID NEED THESE MEDS HE MUST THINK I SWITCHED FOR DRUGS CAUSE I HAD WANTED TO TRY THE OPANA ER WITH THE NEW DR. THE NEW DR MUST HAVE TOLD HIM THIS. I HAD NOTHING TO HIDE SO THE NEW ONE DID TALK TO THIS ORIGINAL ONE. NEEDLESS TO SAY THE OPANA ER NEVER TOUCHED THE PAIN SO SHE THE NEW ONE PUT ME ON MS CONTIN, THEY DIDN'T USE METHADONE WHICH IS WHAT I WAS ON ORIGINALLY.
ANYWAY I AM NOW BACK WITH THE ORIGINAL ONE, MY BODY IS NOW SOMEWHAT USED TO 30MGS TWICE A DAY NEED 60 MGS BUT HE WON'T UP IT. BUT HE LETS ME GO TO MY GP DOCTOR AND GET VICODIN FOR B/T.
HE STOPPED CAUSE FOR SOME REASON WHICH I THINK WAS CAUSE I CHANGED COLON CLEANSERS AT THE TIME, THE URINANALYSIS CAME BACK NEG FOR VICODIN EVEN THOUGH I WAS TAKING IT.
SO I REALLY WISH I WAS ABLE TO FIND A DR HERE IN NORTH CAROLINA THAT ACCEPTED THE FACT THAT I DO NEED THESE STRONG MEDS TO KEEP THIS PAIN AWAY LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO FUNCTION.
I ALSO CAN'T SEEM TO GET IT THROUGH THERE HEADS THAT I AM NOT LIKE THE NORMAL PERSON THAT TAKES THESE STRONG MEDS AND GET KNOCKED OUT,
THESE STRONG MEDS ACTUALLY WORK QUITE THE OPPOSITE WITH ME. I AM WIDE AWKE WHEN TAKING THEM. CAN FUNCTION JUST FINE. AS LONG AS I AM PAIN FREE.
IF THIS PAIN GETS WORSE I PLAN ON ASKING MY ORIGINAL DR IF I CAN GO BACK ON THE METHADONE. CAUSE ORIGINALLY INSTEAD OF UPPING MGS THATS WHAT HE WOULD DO IS SWITCH BACK AND FORTH. BECAUSE WHEN TAKING A BREAK LIKE THAT THE ONE THAT I GO BACK TO WORKS AS WELL AS IT DID WHEN I TOOK IT FOR THE FIRST TIME.
WELL ANYWAY THAT IS MY STORY, HOPE TO HEAR FROM Y'ALL LOVE TRISH :grouphug:

Hi, Trish. I'm happy you came back. It was fine that you introduced yourself on the General board. Several members have answered it, already.
If you check, it's just down aways, but it's still on the first page.
We like to meet new people, too. Hop in and post anywhere that looks interesting to you whenever you're ready. It will be nice to get to know you better.
