I curled up in ball last night it hurt so bad. would oxycontin work?
Most drs. would be unlikely to put you on oxycontin as a first treatment but it is rx'ed sometimes for fibro. Fibro has a wide range of symptoms and meds used to treat it. Some common meds used are antidepressants, such as amitriptyline, Prozac, Cymbalta and others in that family, muscle relaxers such as flexeril, Soma and others, tranqulizers, meds for nerve pain such as neurontin, gabapentin, Lyrica and Savella, and other meds from Loratab thru oxycontin. Each person seems to respond individually to different combos of meds. Let your doctor know you are in this much pain and be very careful with pain meds, tranquilizers, and muscle relaxers as they are habit forming and your tolerance will increase.
I'm on a few meds but I found the best relief and fastest is a spray called O24 Fibromyalgia. I spray it on my legs and shoulders and in 15 minutes, I have so much relief. I put it on at night and I can sleep through the night.
You can get it at www.zoneo24.com. They have wipes to carry with you and bottles of sprays.
