  • Hello Girasole

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Can you explain in a little more detail what you are needing help with? Is it "just" Fibromyalgia as a whole or something else?

    You sound very down. Are you having to make a decision about giving up work?

    If you can tell us a bit more we will do our very best to help you as much as we can.

    If you need someone to chat to you are welcome to message me (or anyone else in Admin). I can let you know how to write a pm which stands for a private message.

  • Hello and welcome I would say get your self to the doctors and see if you need proper medication to help ease your pain Most of the members on the Foram have stronger medication than codeine ,not only that over taking of some medication can't be good for your Tummy Best of luck , I am taking codadrimal, Pregabalin and Loranzipam for sleep See what your docters says

  • I use 8 codeine a day with paracetamo.and citalopram,for long time i dind have problem,now dind work

  • Hi Girasole

    Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance. I also think it would be best to talk to your doctor about what other medication they can give you to help with your pain. There are plenty they could prescribe for you if they feel they are suitable for you.

    I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you


  • thanks so much .
