I have seen specialists and new doctors over and over again since dealing with headaches and pain. I’ve been injected I don’t even know how many times. My hips are starting to have solid lumps from almost daily/every other day.
I’ve been on Vicodin once while Toradol started to no longer work (yet they still make me have those shots first). I have told doctors I did not want to be on “drugs”-at this point, I could care less. I have tried all these “prevention” meds to no avail or the meds had my whole system out of whack. I’ve never had blood pressure issues until I took the Cymbalta and Savella.
The muscle relaxers left me with my mouth so dry I was getting canker sores and so dizzy at times, I have been afraid to carry Aubrey. And yet with it, still the headache from HELL. I would rather have the sharp someone is stabbing me headache versus the constant nagging pressure behind my eyes and pushing pain into my temples. Your entire head feels tender and of course, my back tenses up-completely canceling out the “muscle relaxer”.
This past week, when asking the doctors if there’s anything I can do on the REALLY BAD days where I just can’t take it (more than less lately) and was told “only injectables” until we got me in with a NEW neurologist . (Funny I have to return to neurology when they signed off on me when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia)
So really…I am forced to go to the ER every day/every other day. I’ve sat in pain crying instead of going to the ER to be treated like someone just waiting for their next “high”. I don’t feel high, it’s relief if they give me something that actually relieves the pain and makes my nerves finally go to sleep.
Why must I suffer while I am a guinea pig to let’s try this, let’s try that? I have stopped all meds related to fibro. My body hates me right now, but not as much as I hate it.
