I take Norco 10-325 and Baclofen for pain. I also take cymbalta and prozac for depression and cymbalta helps with the pain. And I use a TENS machine and lidocaine as a topical treatment. Sometimes a heating pad is good and sometimes ice works nicely.
@JohnsonKI - hey thanks! I didn't take very long to see the value of this site! Baclofen is muscle relaxer and is good for me since I am 60. Flexeril is reported to cause dizziness and falling in people over 60 so my dr would not prescribe it. With all the falls I have taken in the last 6 months I am glad she didn't give me that one!
Rocking in rocker/recliner, heating blanket/pad, reading, crocheting, et sometimes even forcing self to move more when pain is soo bad d/t I'm not letting fibro kick my butt as much as it can et has been. Hot bathes in Jacuzzi tug also:) If none of that works et ready to cry (which takes a lot for me) Tyl #3 et Valium just to take the edge off.
@A MyFibroTeam Member - yes I have fibro...also 3 herniated discs, arthritis, bursitis, chronic pain syndrome. I had to sign a contract and give urine specimen when asked. No alcohol and no cannabis. Just like @JohnsonKI said. What is CDC guidelines??
do you have Fibromyalgia? I was taken off the Norco May 2016 due to CDC guidelines implemented in my pain management office.
