... I have suffered for 15 years and have no hope but recently had abdominal pains from an ulcer (which i am now on Dexilant) because i was taking 20-40 Aleve per day and the dr gave me vicodine. It cleared up my fibro and I was able to live again My pcychiatrist and family dr. would not prescribe so i went to a pain specialist. Unbeknownst to me, the dr. is in aa because he abused pain killers... ugh! Do doctors understand the chronic pain and the suffering we go through?? Why should i have to suffer because normal feeling people (who dont have severe fibro) are abusing this drug, used to treat chronic pain. I have plenty of dr.s to testify to my years of suffering (yet they will not prescribe) Please help!!! Im suffering!
