new dx fibro/chronic pain syndrome

Hi all. I'm new here. I've been dx with chronic pain/fibro. I had a hysto this past summer, was given too much dilaudid in the recovery room and quit breathing. I was given narcan and re-intubated until I could breath on my own. I had double vision following my surgery. I also developed severe jaw pain that started as a dull ache and just got worse and became wide spread. Its been nearly six mo's. I was given Lyrica which has helped but I still have terrible headaches, skin sensitivity, and break through pain. My jaws are the worse. I have developed acid reflux and sleep disturbances. I have put in for a medical retirement at my very stressful job. My stressers seem to be cold weather, sitting too long and stress. I have developed depression and anxiety as a result. I'm looking for others who can relate to. I have a history of Reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
Has anyone else developed these disorders post op?

Re: new dx fibro/chronic pain syndrome

Hello & Welcome!
It seems like trauma is the trigger... mine started when I got pregnant with my first child. Then everything got worst after giving birth the 3rd time. They are 10 yrs apart.
FM brings on numerous symptoms. Some come & go, even allergies. We all seem to have an area where the pain seems to center. My lower back always hurts from an old injury. Its worst when the also.. weather gets colder. Course FM gets worst which makes everything else also. But the FM pain centers in my neck mostly in my neck and extends into my upper back, & shoulders. When worst headaches come on.
I have always had insomnia issues & take a muscle relaxed now that puts me to sleep & also helps.with pain.
When I was 18 fatigue hit hard when I got pregnant. My body has felt heavy & sore since. The derealization among other probe. It wasn't till I was 29 I was diagnosed. After 11 yrs I figuredit couldn't get worst, & it did. I'm still learning to control it but seems to just get worst & worst. Summer is the easiest time for me.
I know its frustraiting, but you are not alone. We are all different & have different probe but the same story's... I spent 11 yrs trying to find some magic pill just to find there is no cure. Its a hard thing to except but it'll get easier. You have to learn to live different.

Re: new dx fibro/chronic pain syndrome


In 03 i also had a Hysterectomy, i also was over drugged then an also givin narcan to pull me out of the over dose state so i could breathe. in 04 i hurt my back that's when the non stop pain started for me. I can trace the pain/fibro.. as far back as 2 weeks old tho, i had a very bad virus and was very sick for about a yr after that...BTW both my children an mom and great aunt have Fibro/Chronic Fatigue.

A car accident when i was 4 , severe headaches started, then at 15 sharp shooting pain in my back through to my chest started.

the surgery in 03 i really feel started alot of this HELL! and then my back injury in 04 was the last straw!,,now non stop pain 24/7..btw im 49....well this sunday Iam,,,;p
