I really don't know how to live anymore. Diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatique syndrome about 6 years ago. Went through so many prescription drug combinations that either didn't work or had horrible side effects. Tried naturalpath physicians without any success. Now, back to 1st step of using Oxycodone. My story could go for several pages, but the main issue now is extreme depression along with extreme anger. I have never been an angry person in my life. Went through a horrible divorce 25 years ago, which was more than divorce for complete abandonment with 2 babies to care for. Not very much support of any sort from family members, but always relied on God. Was very active in church doing music and leadership positions. However, fibro got so severe that about 1.5 years ago had to resign. Have been abandoned by family, and friends. Along with inability to work anymore, I am alone every day for 12-15 hours due to husband's long work schedule. Remarried about 5 years ago to a great man, but, feel so abandoned and alone that have a hard time staying close to him. By time he gets home, he is tired and within an hour is usually involved in TV and falling asleep. Anyway, having a hard time concentrating just trying to send this question. But, my need to know is if anyone else is experiencing more than chronic depression but episodes of extreme anger and then feel worse about myself and get more depressed.
Major depression is a vicious cycle. What youre going through is exactly that; depression. Im so sorry to hear about your situation, this sounds like a case of a bad thing happening to a good person. I wish there was more i could do for you. A hobby will help, occupy your time with something that interests you. Dont give up on God, because you know he'll never give up on you. Get into a support group!
I also have a hard time with medications... I also feel anger and get irrated with this medication, hard to find a solution to fibromyalgia... I also have been put on several meds with no success. Be of good courage, God will see you through ..I do volunteer work and it takes my mind off a lot of my pain. Dolly
I'm surprised you aren't on ketamine infusions. You need to get them. They saved mine and some of my chronically ill, friend's lives. Seriously don't hesitate to get them. There are clinics all over the US. Add yourself to the group on Facebook called Ketamine infusions for better health. That's not the full name but it will pull it up. People with CRPS and Fibromyalgia find that they get close to 100% pain relief for about a month at a time. Also don't just ask your doctor. They likely are ignorant about it. You don't need a referral. Just call up your nearest clinic after looking up reviews and do it! You can thank me later. Or better yet just go enjoy your newly given life if you do get it done!
Those ketamine infusions do work I'm told. The only drawback is if you are bipolar there is a good chance that you will become manic. They wouldn't give them to me for that reason. They offered ECT which turned out to be a bad decision for me. I'll never do them again.
I have fibro, lupus, apls, spine and disc disease and many other dx. I was on oxycodone for 7 yrs and I was so depressed and irritable and angry all the time and my pain got worse every year. I was DX with osteoporosis now at age 40 which my rheumy states is linked to the long term use of OxyContin. I detoxed and been off for about since June 26th. I feel better now then I did on the OxyContin, my pain is better! My rheumy told me OxyContin makes your fibro pain much worse. Something about how fibro affects the receptors and OxyContin is contraindicated . I trust her she has been trying to get me to stop these demonic toxic pills for years, Plus she graduated from Harvard ;) detox was rough but I got through it and survived it. I never want to take those pills ever again. They were making me sicker! Good luck, I would totally check the ketamine infusions for depression and try your best to get off those pills.

I've been taking 15mg oxycodone 3x for several years. My Dr recently raised me to 20mg oxycodone 3x.
