You need to go to a doctor who treats a lot of fibromyalgia. It's the only way to get a doctor you know will understand and there are injections a good pain management specialist or fiber specialist can give you...called trigger point injections that will help much more than Lortabs. I have MS with severe pain and they helped me a lot. The meeds you are taking can potentially damage your liver and are hard on the stomach. Seach for a fiber support group in your area and get a recommendation for a doctor who understands the pain of fibro and let us know how you are doing.
