I could sure use some feedback on all this pain I've got going in my body.

Basically, it's like a storm going off causing aches and pains all over. There is something focused in my back that is making me see stars. I'm weak- my thumb hyperextend when I was taking a bite out of an apple. The muscle was just not there and my thumb bent back... WTF???

I've got hella herx going on, but I swear there's more to it than that. I've had these crazy bouts with pain before I ever got diagnosed and started down this drugged up trail...

My dr. suggests that I coulda just strained my back and have herx too. Maybe.

Who else is plagued by horrible pain all over?
This sucks so bad, because I can't take any kind of opiate pain killer, ibu does nothing, Tylenol makes me sick...

I tried ultram yesterday hoping it would not make me sick. The pain in my back subsided enough for me to get up for a couple of hours then a nasty migraine set in!!!!

I just wanted to die. Every nerve ending was generating pain. I'm going into day six with this Scenario and I'm feeling a bit ****y, if you know what I mean. The migraine is heinous. That a failed attempt to deal with my back pain triggered a migraine has me confounded.

So, what do you do for pain if you can't tolerate pain medication?? God help me!!

Anybody use their ativan when pains becomes unmanageable?

I don't know what to do.
Can anyone tell me about fibromyalgia? What is this?
Thanks.

I'm sorry to hear you are in such pain.

I have found homeopathy to work wonders for pain and other ailments (if you take the right remedy--finding it is quite an art). It has worked for earaches, broken bone pain, asthma attacks and other acute situations in my family.

I'm sure you could find a homeopath in your area.
