    and I think i got meself a good one! He said he did some research on fibro before seeing me. He says that he understands that i'm in extreme pain. I think the cane helped a bit too.

    He put me on methodone. 5 mgs 3x a day. He upped the amount of vicodine. And he is putting me on some pill that will supposedly help with the major weight gain!

    Then last nite, I had a half hour of being totally pain free! Never had that happen before! Maybe the methodone? Don't know. But it sure was nice!

    seems like quite a few people have gotten lucky with good physicians.

    good for you. i hope the pain relief continues.

    Thanks! But i guess i forgot to mention that the pain all came back. I don't drive anymore. I consider my self a danger on the road. Not just to myself, but mostly a danger to others. My DH drives all the time now.

    I will still get the same dose of vicodin, but more of them. From 30 to 45.

    I'm so happy for you, I found a new awesome Dr also yesterday.

    I can't believe you were pain free for 1/2 an hour. That must have just been wonderful!
    Keep us posted on this Dr and how your doing with the meds :)
