    Seven months ago I was laid off from the job I had for 23 years. My husband was asking me to go ahead and "retire" before this happened (I'm not quite at retirement age yet), but I was having a really hard time making that decision.

    Well, I didn't have to make the decision after all, it was made for me. As devistated as I was, it has been for the best.

    Right after I quit working, I had my first appointment with a pain specialist. He started me out on a couple of drugs that made me sick. So, he switched me to darvocet.

    For me, it's worked the best of anything. I can have up to 4 a day, but so far I've managed with about 2 a day. He also prescribed Ativan to take just before bed time.

    I am just so excited about getting a little relief from this pain, that I just wanted to share it with you.

    I am also happy that you found a med that works well for you.

    I have found 3 that work well for me. They are Cymbalta, Neurotin, and the Zanaflex that I take at bedtime.
