Re: new at this...neenee

I think the pain mgmt doc might be able to decrease your pain without narcotics. I had problems with that and had to get only a certain amount of percocet a week so i wouldn't take too much. I have tapered off and now take only a half percocet once or twice a day. I also have physical therapy and injections for myofascial release there. I have gotten better with my treatments. I still have flares of fatigue and muscle pain. I also have had periods where i couldn't remember my words or be able to finish sentences. That is called fibrofog. I hope your pain mgmt can help you as much as mine helps me. Try not to stress out. Some doc's do understand. Don't give up hope. Please keep us posted.
