Avatar_f_tn I have been having a lot of pain in my legs, back, hands and arms. Ibprofen and other things don't seem to help it. I do not know how to make if feel better. Some of it is in the muscles that are extremely tight and others seem like joint pain. Just wondering. My doctors won't prescribe anything else. I have tried Lyrica and a bunch of arthritis meds. Again I am undiagnosed so they are also trying to figure out what I have.
606078_tn?1247268153 I take Tramadol, Zoloft, Flexeril, Restoril, high blood pressure meds, a statin for cholesterol, and meloxicam. I couldn't tolerate Lyrica or Neurontin, both made me very ill. My Rhuemy feels that the trauma from having had 3 major knee surgeries in exactly 7 months brought my fibro to fruitation. My grown children and my husband all understand that this disease is unseen but will take total control if I allowed it to do so.
Avatar_n_tn Of course, if I had the money, I would have called the vet, who would have told me to bring my dog in and then run expensive tests and then told me what I already knew and then prescribed a vet formulation of flexeril that is identical to human.
Avatar_m_tn for the last 6 years they have had me taking everything from tramadol, xanax, morphine, diladud, oxycontin, oxcycodone, codeine, oxcycodone ir, vicodin, norco, soma, flexeril, meloxicam, mobic, on top of that I used to be an alcoholic, and use illegal drugs cocaine mostly weed, and whatever else to stop the pain from the total disc replacement surgery in my back. Here is the ****** up part, I can't get off them even if I wanted to, I would be in chronic pain and I am only 37 years old.
Avatar_m_tn Finally, I went to an orthopedic surgeon spine specialist. My doctor ordered an MRI, put me on Mobic (Meloxicam) and ordered PT 2 times a week. The MRI showed 3 herniated disks caused by annular tears in my L4-S1. The doctor also said I have DDD (Degenerative Disk Disease). Clearly, my nerves were/are being compressed. I go to PT for core strengthening and traction. Traction is amazing. Traction is disk decompression.

Avatar_m_tn I got sick of it so I went to the doctor who checked my ears and said that it did look sore in there and perhaps I had an infection so they prescribed a low dose of amoxicillin. I took about 1/3 of the dose and stopped because the symptoms went away. I didnt like the side effects (bad stomach) so I stopped taking it since the vibrating had stopped. The vibrating came back though after a few days, and it became a constant sense of vibrating.
Avatar_m_tn 50 mg and yea motrin 800 doesn't work for me either and is rough on my stomach but mobic(that's the non generic name for meloxicam) is only 15mg and doesn't bother my stomach.
Avatar_f_tn I saw another Dr a few weeks later who gave me Meloxicam and cyclobenzaprine - I took a higher dosage daily for about 3 weeks and it really helped. Had a lot less pain. Pressure left from my face, only occasional shooting spasm pain. She said my tension in my neck and shoulders was pretty bad and I even saw a dentist and wear a mouth guard.
544292_tn?1268886268 Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Avatar_n_tn My fibromyalgia is focused in my back, ALL of my back; upper, lower, middle, and both sides. F.Y.I. I also have osteoarthritis and osteopenia(?) and (in case it's relevant) I had whiplash (upper back/neck) in Dec. 1987. Now, my questions are: Do Fibromyalgia patients typically experience 'flare ups'? I've been on a combination of Gabapentin and EffexorXR for treatment and often the pain is manageable and under control.
659608_tn?1318292966 I just saw miy primary doctor last week, and he did not send me for any tests or xrays, and said he thought I had Fibromyalgia. I was given percriptions for Meloxicam (Mobic) & Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril). Does this fit the diagnoises of Fibromyalgia, or should I ask for the xrays and other tests?
712042_tn?1254572809 After 2 ½ years of problems ( mainly shortness of breath on exertion) and after many interventions and tests which were all negative, including two left and right cardiac caths, I was referred to Emory University Hospital interventional cardiology. I underwent another cath as a way of a diagnosis by exclusion. They were pretty confident of the diagnosis they were to confirm.
544292_tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 53. This thread is full of helpful and kind people who want to help you get off this terrible drug. Please snuggle in and make yourself comfy. I know you can do it!
Avatar_m_tn You have to want to do this though and be of strong mind and stick to it. Also add Ibuprofen or aleve or meloxicam (anti-inflammatory)to help the pain. Good luck and stay strong, your daughter needs you.
272434_tn?1228610809 last year. This is the best I have felt in years. I also have Meloxicam, Tramadol and Flexeril. The last two I can take more than once a day as needed. Good luck to all of us. BTW I have found that aqua aerobics really helps. It will hurt for at least the 1st week but it is worth it. The more you sit, the more stiff you become. You have to move. If you are retired or disabled ask your insurance about Silver Sneakers or Silver and Fit or any exercise program.
975514_tn?1325001538 we tried topamax but it gave me a rare side affect and my face went numb. These days its flexeril, percocet, lyrica, and neurontin (gabapentin) I'm still convinced the neurontin does nothing but whatever it doesn't do anything negative so I take it. I thought the lyrica wasn't working until after I had been on it for about a year and I ran out and forgot to get it filled. yeah. it helps.
522415_tn?1242941355 Now I only take the occassional Flexeril at night and the D-Ribose that was mentioned by someone previously is a lifesaver. 1 tsp. in my coffee every morning. It's a tasteless white powder you can get at any health food store, not too cheap, worth every penny. It takes about 10-14 days give or take to kick in but WOW. The pain subsides and the energy level SOARS. It is awesome. I know several people who have tried it and are like new. They have quit taking their regular meds.
537974_tn?1213748515 My usual medications are low dose Effexor for mild depression since a death close to me in 2003 and Meloxicam for knee arthritis. I have taken these meds since 2003 with no trouble so I am sure it isn't the meds I currently take. I take supplements too, Vitamind D3 5,000 units cholecalciferol (I was deplete), Magnesium and Omega 3-6-9. So Thursday rolled around and I had not eaten anything (other than coffee, water and diet Dr. Pepper) since Tuesday.
Avatar_n_tn I self medicate with Ibuprofen, and sleep on an ice pack every night. In addition, I lay on a baseball and roll over the rhomboid muscle while stretching to break up the spasms for some relief, the ball hits an area that feels like a rope that is in a horizontal position across the rhomboid. Pain radiates from the rhomboid up the right side of my neck, and down my right arm which includes the right shoulder. Headaches are almost constant.
Avatar_n_tn Started 2 days ago. When standing it comes and goes in 10-15 second intervals. Sitting in bed now and it's gone. I hear a lot of talk about nerves which makes sense - growth of cysts can put pressure on the nerves cant it? Help - please keep me posted. I will keep you all posted too.
Avatar_n_tn The pain I experience is usually in my left inner thigh but last week it was in both of my inner thighs. The pain is a slicing excruciating pain that is horrible. I have had three children so I know what pain is, but this is horrible pain. It feels like someone is stabbing me. It doesn't happen very often and I have experienced this pain for the past several years. I am 58 years old, I am 5'8" and weigh 165 lbs. I exercise frequently and am in good health.
Avatar_n_tn It is somewhat a relief to hear other people having the EXACT same issues as I am going through. Here it is almost 4:00am and after researching on the net since I awoke at at 1:00am I have finally found other people like myself. I definitely feel everyone's pain.
