Hello. I'm crying myself to sleep over this haunting
Pain. I got to a new pm dr this coming week
And I wanted to know about the rx opana er
In regards to the treatment if my fibromyalgia
I'm taking currently 30mg Roxie 4x day.( more if I'm crying in a ball
On my couch) 2soma as needed(but gives me
Restless legs) 4 10 mg methadone as my long acting.
Been in this combo 5 months ! Pain level before in am
After u can move 8 to 10 then after rx for an hour it relieves
Maybe down to a 5 but 5 is not bearable , I have a 11 month old
Girl and can barley pick her up!
Would opana er work well with fibro pain
And how does it work with Roxie as a breakthru with it
Also neither symbalta, nourontin, or savella has helped
Symbalta seems to keep me a little more pisitive
Towards my agonizing pain but really for the price X
BUT I'M JUST A PERSON IN PAIN THAT NEEDS
ADVICE OR OPINION! opana for fibro ya or nae?
I'm sorry you're in such pain. Unfortunately, none of us can tell you if the Opana will work better than your current meds - as you know, each person is different, and how their body reacts to meds is different, so what may work wonders for one person, may not do a thing for someone else.
What I would suggest is when you go to your new PM doc, simply tell him/her that your current medication regime is not helping with your pain and ask THEM if there is anything else they can prescribe/suggest. I, personally, feel it is never a good idea to go into any doctor asking for a specific pain medication. Of course, if the doctor asks you what has worked in the past, then by all means, tell him/her if there has been anything that has helped you before, but I would not go into the appointment specifically asking for a particular drug - this may not look very good on you.
It could be that your current pain meds could still work if they were just "tweaked" a little bit - maybe increase your methadone for the long acting and perhaps switching out your muscle relaxer - I've tried both Soma and flexeril and have found that the flexeril actually works better for me - but it does make me pretty sleepy also, so I definitely don't take it when i have to drive or do anything that I have to be fully alert for.
I'm like you, Cymbalta and Savella did not work for me - I actually had pretty bad reactions to them both - made me very hyper, INCREASED my pain instead of helping it and shot my BP through the roof. I've had that same type of reaction to any of the SSRI's that have been tried. I know quite often the SSRI's are used for fibro, but for me, it' not worth the side effects and my doctor agrees with that.
How are you sleeping? Are you having a hard time with that? Many, many fibro patients do have sleeping problems and many of them need a prescription sleep aid to help. Sleep is definitely a major problem for me, and I notice a MAJOR difference in my pain levels when I haven't gotten good (or enough) sleep - they are way higher. I do take Ambien at night and some nights it helps, but there are other nights that it doesn't. For us as fibro patients, it's a vicious cycle - we can't sleep because we hurt and we are hurting more because we aren't getting enough sleep. If you're not currently taking a sleep aid, you may also want to ask the doctor about giving you one - again, probably not asking for a specific one, there are several of them - but just letting him know that you're having trouble with sleep and ask if there's anything that could be tried.
As far as other ways to hopefully help your pain, I sometimes find that a warm shower helps - not too hot, but also not too cold - I find that extremes of temps either way are not good. If you'rre able to, perhaps soaking in a warm tub. I also quite often use my microwaveable heating pad - of course, it doesn't cover all areas at once, but I can rotate it to the areas that are giving me the most trouble at the moment and then move it to another area, etc., etc.
I wish you the best of luck and please keep us posted on how your appointment goes.
