    My Internal Medicine doctor is treating me right now for FMS. He has several patients he is treating and has had great results with Toradol injections. I get one every few months. I am not pain free, but it I can go without additional pain medicine for several weeks.

    and WELCOME to the board! always nice to meet someone new, but sorry it has to be under these circumstances.

    Re: toradol--it is always best to start a course of oral toradol with injected toradol, do you then take the pills? Although it is technically an anti-inflammatory, it does give pretty good pain relief in acute settings (post op and wounds,fractures,etc.) but not very familiar w/ fibro.

    i did use it when i thought my problem was ovarian (centered in pelvis only--before it became widespread) and it worked well for that, when my "ovary" would flare up, i would start by injection then go on to a course of oral treatment, but the pills might not be real good for your kidneys w/diabetic history.

    Welcome, again, and have a great day--L

    This is what they gave me in the e.r. I had never heard of it before. I was having an "over the edge" out of my mind kinda pain that night and went in. That is interesting that you are being treated with it. It helped.

    They help her so much but they will only let her have like 20 pills per month. So she alternates Toradol and Darvocet, plus she takes soma and trazadone for sleep. Pam (crispangel)

    I was also given this injection at the ER due to significant muscle pain. It did help, shortly after the muscle cramping around my chest and back eased up. I was given this injection x3 throughout a 5 month period. I noticed I stop responding to the injection and my doc refused to continue giving it to me stating I need to see a specialist for soemthign a lil stronger.

    Currently, I am not taking the injection, but have been placed back on flexeril. Groggy in the am, but I do get soem rest throughout the night. I'm also taking ambien- sleeping aid, and alternating with the flexeril. If I don't take either pill I'm up all night staring at the walls or watchign TV.

    I get Toradol shots weekly right now, but it is for my degenerative disc disease. I'm also on Vicodin, Soma, Naproxen and Cymbalta and getting facet joint injections, something is helping, but I don't know what! Toradol burns when they inject it!

    I would have to go into the ER everytime I had a migraine to get a shot, the pills made me vomit, (My stomach reacts violently to NSAIDS) and the shot just made me nauseated... lesser of two evils, right? :)

    Before I moved my dr was thinking about rx'ing me injections at home, so I didn't have to go to the ER just for a shot...

    I will definitely talk to the dr when I go back to the pain clinic next week!!
