hi all. i am new to this board, obviously
anyway, I have to take 240mg a day of oxycontin and I am only 32 yrs old. I also have had 2 cervical fusions and have cerebral palsy which I believe all of the above have contributed to my FM.
I am afraid of getting on methadone. Not because it is bad, but I don't think I would be able to still work at my job. It is the only job I can physically do as a nurse anymore. I am very fortunate.
Anyway, I an looking for some guidance on like Chinese herbs or something that I may try. I really want to stop the oxycontin, esp since I hope to have a baby one of these days, even tho the dr's say I can't. Well, I don't give up that easy!! Any suggestions would be great. Thanks again.
