Hi Kellie! Congrats on becoming a grandmother. It must have been great celebrating his first holiday season. I love horror too!

You've joined a great group of people who are here to support you. Pain is hard on me too, but don't let it get you down. It sounds like you have a lovely family, and pain can't take that away from you.

I have had fibro for 30+ years and my pain thresh hold is zero so i completely understand how you feel. Do you take any pain medication at all ? There is meds out there it helps some but sadly not everyone. I hope we see you around and get to know you better ((hugs)) Hoping you sleep well xx

Hi Kellie, Yes these are the standard medications for fibro. I would ring and ask your GP in the morning. I can not tolerate any medication so i am sorry I don't know if this is ok. I guess it may be but i'm not medically trained so would not advise you to take it till you have spoke with someone at your surgery xx
