I'm 54, and had to go on disability in '09. I have fibro, CFS, Sjogren's, Raynauds, and degenerative disk disease (neck and back). I also found out last Nov, after an EMG test, that I have Mononeuritis Multiplex. I take numerous medications, of course, just like all of you, and my family physician just started me on Fentanyl pain patches. They help a lot. I take less percocet. But still experience a lot of pain and numbness. I also, at different times have difficulty breathing, but my lungs check out ok. My fingers and feet are so 'tight'...of course they burn, get numb, turn colors from the Raynauds...but the tightness? what's that about? maybe I'm just paranoid b/c I'm looking for more trouble...but I need to know! I have been reading everyone's comments on this blog for almost a year now, and even though I feel so bad for each of you, I guess it's kind of nice to know you're not alone in this...
