This was a discussion I had with my dr. yesterday. I told him alot of people with fibro say they have flu like body aches but mine is NOT it is intense pain . I feel he doesn't take me seriously. He doesn't believe in pain meds. He is a good dr. BUT I am in pain and it wears me down. Mine feels like a nerve pain in so many places. My family dr gives me vicodin but that even doesn't help alot of the time. When rheum. found out I took vicodin he asked me to swear I would only take it once or twice a wk. HELLO! My family dr. believes in pool therapy. Drs who treat fibro or rheum. drs. are getting smaller and smaller. My question is how is yours, a achyness, or pain? I keep thinking these drs are missing something. and on a scale of 1-10 mine is almost always a 9 or 10 . whats yours? How would you describe yours?
