Hello ive been diagnosed with fibro last year and since then have been on several medications to try and knock the pain but so far ive had no luck. Ive tried naproxen but that made me sick, paracetamol and ibrophoen mixed dont do anything for me anymore.
I was then put on arcoxia but again it made me feel a bit spaced out and my doctor wasnt happy as it has long term bad effects to the kidneys/liver. So i was put on amitriptyline, my worst one yet.
Although the pain was taken away slightly, the other side effects were way worse. I felt completely nu,b, not physically but mentally, i didnt get happy, sad, excited or anything anymore i was like a robot. I know its down to amitriptyline being a antidepressant and in a low dose a nerve blocker which is why i was taking it but it was absolutely awful. After a breakup with my boyfriend due to how much i changed as a person i decided to go back to the doctors and change to something else.
I am now on pregablin however it dosent seem to be doing much, its been over a week of taking it and i am in unbelievable pain. she said if after a month i was no better to double the dose but i hate taking so many medications in high doses.
Does anyone else have any theories of what ic ant ry for pain relief? Alot of people have told me to try tumeric tablets so thats next on my list but after that i have no idea where to go. I am only 21 and im scared that for the rest of my life this will be my struggle.
Thank you x
