Due to the fact winter has set in and it seems as tho the cold makes me hurt 10xs worse than in summer. what can I do? My problems are many,but I have upper and lower back problems,my knees,legs and feet hurt and swell.I also have fibromyalgia in my arms,legs and shoulders.Ive been on patch about 4mos and was only taking 2 or 3 perc's a day and was managing my pain ok. Now the cold has come and it's not working anymore. Im sick of all the drugs and them not even working cause im still in pain and suffer so.
