Re: Fibromyalgia/herpes virus

I've had fibromyalgia most of my adult life and am now 56. I tried different drugs, but have given up on those and live with it. Exercise kills me, but ends up making me feel better afterwards. I have tried Ultram pain killer, and all the lesser drugs before that for short amounts of time (3 mo) to see what they'd do. Now I take Hydrocodone mostly only when I travel, so I am able to enjoy myself on trips. Riding in cars and sitting or standing for long periods of time cripples me up badly or puts me in more much intense pain. So one hydro a day or every other day doesn't get rid of all of it, but certainly makes life better for special events. A bottle of 30 lasts me close to a year, so I don't worry about getting hooked on it.
