How can I manage my pain?
I am 25 years old and I have fibromyalgia, artheritis, PCOS and endometriosis. I am ALWAYS in pain, every singe minute of every single day. I don't remember the last time I wasn't in pain. I went to my doctor last week and she gave me muscle relaxers, anti-inflamatories and anti-depressants. I've been depressed for a long time because of how much pain i'm in and because I am always stuck at home. She also set me up to do physical therapy twice a week. I've been taking the meds the way i'm supposed to and nothing is happening. I feel exactly the same plus a little nauseous from the zoloft. I have tried light excersizing but every time I do that, I end up pulling a muscle somewhere. I just don't know what to do and I don't feel like my doctor is taking my pain seriously. The only thing that has ever helped is the stronger pain killers which I hate taking because they make me tired but at this point, i'd rather be tired all the time than in pain all the time. I'm getting really frustrated with her because she keeps giving me things that don't work and then gets annoyed with me when I tell her that. I have tried everything over the counter and nothing helps. What can I do? I don't really have an option to go to another doctor because of the program i'm on since I don't have insurance.

Have you tried Lyrica for the pain? I have MS and it works great for my nerve pain. I also take 4 100mg doses of Tramadol a day. It is a very low dose pain medication and although it doesn't completely take all of my pain away it really takes the edge off. It also doesn't cause me to be tired all day like the stronger ones do. I also take a low dose of Xanax at night to help relax my muscles and believe it or not it has acted as a great pain reliever in that since my muscles aren't so tight it lessons the pain from that. Hot baths have been a life saver at times for me. Oh, there is also another medication that helps nerve pain and the pain associated with depression as well as depression itself called Cymbalta. I can't take it but have heard that it has helped a lot of others. Amitryptoline (sp?) is also another medication that is used to treat Fibromyalgia. As well as the seizure medication Neurontin. Prednisone is also used. Try talking to her about these medications as well as any other ones that she knows about that are being used to treat your conditions. I know how frustrating doctors can be when all you need is some relief. It took me almost 4 years to finally get a diagnosis and now I am waiting for the appointment with the Neurologist to get started on the MS medication. Good luck, I hope you find relief soon.
**** Try going to the library and checking out books and DVD's on Yoga. There are very gentle Yoga poses that you should be able to do. And it teaches you great relaxation techniques that work very well.

Your stomach upset is coming from the Anti-Inflammatory that you are taking, and probably not the Zoloft. If you have fibromyalgia try Lyrica. Also, if you have arthritis and fibro, your doctor should have no problem giving you some Vicodin for pain. You can probably get a referral from her, so ask her if she can refer you to a pain management specialist. I take aspirin, extra strength tylenol, use a topographical cream like Ben Gay. I used to take Vicodin for seven years but had major back surgery and foot surgery and now the pain isn't so bad that I need pain killers anymore. Also try some of those heat wraps and Percogelsic at night to help you sleep. Percogelsic is the strongest over the counter pain reliever you can buy. Try to stay active, and I know that is hard, but try.

Hi Kat. Clearly, your doctor is only trying to mask your symptoms with drugs - she is NOT looking to find and fix the cause of your problems (all of your conditions may be related and caused by one or a few underlying problems).

For example, medical research suggests that several of your conditions can be caused by a "leaky gut". Celiac Disease is another possibility. Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) should also be ruled-out by proper testing. Multiple micronutrient deficiencies should also be considered. Food allergies (especially reactions to the Nightshade food group) are highly probable in your case. Heavy metal toxicities (lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, etc.) also need to be considered.











I bet your doctor has not tested you for any of the above situations. You may need to find a doctor trained in "environmental medicine" and nutrition to get the type of care you really need. Naturopathic Physicians, some Chiropractors and a few medical doctors have the appropriate training to help you.

Best wishes and good luck.

p.s. Sherry Rogers, M.D. has written an excellent book on this subject called "Pain Free in 6 Weeks". It is available at Amazon.com. I highly recommend it.
