I have had fibromyalgia for over 16 years now, I have been on every kind of med available other than OxyContin and methadone which I am afraid to go on. My latest one is morphine sulfate which is suppose to be the fourth strongest med out there. Well it does nothing for me. I tried the 15 and nothing so I went to 30 and nothing but a pounding headache. The only actual drug that has even done anything for me is soma. When I lived in NH, my doctor listened to me and had no problem taking it. I was on it for years and took 700 mg night. It made me relax and not care so much that I hurt. I then moved to Florida and I can not get anyone to prescribe me at all. I have never had to see a pain specialist till I moved here and now that is where I go. I now have a fentanyl patch which is fine, I don't even know it is there but I know for sure when it is not but for any other break thru, they have given me it all and nothing works. When I went off of soma only because I couldn't get it anymore, I had no withdrawals of any kind but I am in more pain than I ever wanted to be again. This is so ridiculous that doctors are so against this med and for what reason? They claim addition, but what is the difference if I am addicted to these narcotics that they have me take no problem like they are candy and don't work? There excuse is I'm not addicted to them, that I am dependent on them, what the hell is the difference? Claimed they can ween me off if necessary, why not ween me off of soma? I don't get what is so bad of soma if all these people with fibromyalgia are getting relief and something is actually working for us? Sure there will be people that will always abuse something but ***? It works, give it back and let us have some sort of relief or try living with this nightmare themselves.
