    My rhuematologist will only prescribe Lortab 5/500 to be taken no more than 2 times a day for my fibro pain. It doesn't even touch my pain. I have talked to him several times about my pain and how this medicine just doesn't "seem to help at all" and he says that he is afraid I will become addicted to it.
    There is only one Rheumatologist in the small city I live in. Can anyone suggest any other ways I can address this issue with my doctor. I also take 150mg Lyrica 3XD, doesn't seem to help either. I also took Cymbalta, didn't help.
    Another issue I have is finding a bed that is comfortable. Most beds I have found don't take the pressure off "my pressure points". I have been sleeping on my sofa for the last 3 years. Any sugguestions?
    Thanks
