Thank you all for your kind replies, you may not know it but I have been mostly reading and that has kept me going so thanx for that too. I am certain that some of the pain issues are due to me being tolerant to a lot of the narcs. I have been on methadone for 2yrs to control the fibro pain. I take klonopin routinely for the PLMD and RLS. So really all they could do was give me percocet 7.5/325 up from the 5mg of oxycodone I was already on for break through pain. It would not surprise me if I was in a fibro flare stress tends to bring it on. I just hope the lupus doesn't flare that is much worse but Thank God that is good so far. I never have had frequent flares of that Thank God. I just try to walk and rest and walk and rest but at least hearing you all say week 7 or so is usually a turning point gives me light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks again for being there.
