- doctor, abuse
... that abuse narcotics I dont get crap when I goto the doctors. Not only am I in such pain I wanna cry everyday but nobody takes me seriously. I cant sleep or sleep to much, severely depressed,underweight/overweight,major skin issues,etc. I got put on tramadol till my pain management app. I have recently got out of the military and had to start from scratch with all my doctors.
My question is can someone explain the ketemine transfusions? I remember getting them in California and now it seems I can take 10-12 vicidon still be in pain and all I feel is nauseos and my throat tightens all day everyday now. I also take tramadol 800mg A day. I dont understand why docs give this away like candy??? Someone give me guidance Im so miserable and noone understands me
Hi MissFibro! Wish I had info re: questions you've asked re: meds etc... I don't :-(... but still wanted to say I read your post and know your pain and feel for you! There are many well-read people on this site; and I'm certain someone with a better medication knowledge base than I will respond in due time. In the meantime, hang in there no matter what! A.B.H.
Welcome to the wonderful world of fibro. You are on way too much tramadol. Max a day is 400 mg. Taking more can cause seizures and dependence. Docs prescribe it because as of yet its not controlled. You need to find a good rheumatologist or pain management dr. I'm 65 and spent most of my life in pain explaining myself. I've come to the conclusion that other fibro sufferers are the only ones who even want to understand (that includes 2 ex husbands, lol). I had a wonderful pain management doc who was also a fibro specialist and he understood. The state took his license because he prescribed narcotics for pain. I've finally found the solution for my sleep, and its helped me alot. The daily pain wears you out emotionally and physically. I've never had a ketamine transfusion offered to me. Have you been on something like cymbalta and lyrica?
