Evening everyone, ive finished a weeks course of steroids for an FM / UCTD flare and for a few days I felt almost normal and pain free. Except today the burning down my spine (worse at the base and hips) started again. Anti inflams dont help. I've been on plaquenil for almost 2 months now and that seems to help, but out of desparation this afternoon i took 10mg oxycodone tab which I usually only have as required at night. Within an hour i had huge relief and could carry on with my day. Does anybody else take oxycodone for pain? I worry about the addictive nature of it but if anything I'm more inclined to have a pain free day and be able to work. It's definitely not a medication I would abuse. I'm interested in other experiences please? 😊
