    Talking Treatment that WORKS

    My doctor has done wonders for me. I am 27 and had practically been disabled. Had family had to come and take care of my kids because I could not even get up and take care of myself anymore. My doctor put me on BUPAP for pain and BUPAP w/codeine for really bad days. I take Plaquenil that is a medication used for Lupus and Rheumotoid Arthritis and take 2 Zanaflex at night. I only take pain meds as needed and have been taking all of these for two months, last week I was dancing with my daughter and son and have cleaned my house and had a basically normal existence. I had three days in these two months that I hurt and I took pain pills for those days and rested a lot and am back on my feet. Please suggest these to your doctor. I had trouble getting anything to control this until this current treatment. For those with this problem, I have been in tears just to get up and live normal like everyone else. Best of luck and all the Love and prayers to all of you.

    What kind of doctor do you go to? Is he/she a specialist? Maybe some of us could get help.

    Hey Cynthia and Scooby.
    One the BUPAP is a mixed medication with a pain killer and an anti-inflammatory med with acetaminaphen. The one with codeine is the same with codeine mix. The zanaflex is a muscle relaxer and I take two at night to help relax and help sleep. The Plaquenil is a really new medication for Rheum. Arthritis and Lupus patients. I am not real sure what active meds are in it. Also, if I have a problem with sickness and immunity he puts me on a dose pack steroid to boost my system. This doctor is not a Rheumatologist. He is an internal medicine believe it or not. My sister is one year older than me and has Rheum., Lupus, Fibro., MVP, and Sjogrens. She went to many different doctors before she went to him and he is the one that found it and cared enough to do all sorts of research and keep up with the latest arthritis studies that he now has a huge practice and people like me and my sister and a bunch of elderly patients with arthritis choose to see him rather than specialists. He is highly knowledgeable and intelligent. I went to see him when my sister was first diagnosed 7 years when I had problems with a hurt foot that would not heal. He did the Rheum. and Lupus test on me because of my sister and found nothing. When I went back to him about 3 months ago he automatically told me that it was CFS and Fibro. They said my sister would be in a wheel chair in 6 months when she started seeing him and noone else could find my problem. It has been six years and she is still walking and strong and he has got me back on my feet. I am in Birmingham, Alabama. Thanks.
