I was diagnosed with Fibro in 2005 , a few months after a car accident. I broke my ankle and have a plate in it since 2005. My pcp refered me to a rheumatologist and Iâ€™ve been seeing her since 2005. I am now on Tramadol, nabutome, Gabapentin and amitriplin. Flares up cone and go and Iâ€™m able to manage but for 4 months now Iâ€™ve had severe pain in my legs and itâ€™s very difficult to walk. I have tried the 3 usual fibro meds and I could not tolerate any of them. Also had a steroid injection on my lower back that did nothing to relief my lower back pain. This was done by a pain management doctor. Went back to see him today and I find my self even more fasutrated with who can best help me manage my pain. I just joined this group in hopes that I could learn about what else can be done to relieve pain.Iâ€™ve always been a very active person even with after fibro but this new pain in my legs and difficulty walking is really stopping me dead on my tracks.Anyone having this problem .. leg pain and canâ€™t walk?
Do you also have neuropathy? My fibromyalgia pain was always in my legs more than anywhere else too and I developed what i thought was “restless leg syndrome.” As it turned out, I had “Neuropathy,” I now take myrapex for that issue and it helps. I am also on Cymbalta (which i completely swear by.) Lyraca and gabapentin are garbage but Cymbalta is amazing for fibromyalgia. I have tried so many different things, lexapro, wellbutrin, amatriptyline, nortriptyline and the list goes in. Cymbalta is the only one that worked for me.
Has anyone been prescribed LDN for fibromyalgia? I’ve read that it’s presc by some doctors but it’s hard to find doctors that will. LDN is a low dose naproxen medication.
YES! I have been having this same issue. It really IS frustrating, especially when you’ve always been active, and now just can’t be (or even walk, get groceries, do laundry, etc.). This is how I wandered into this website; looking for research that could answer some questions. Sadly, I have no answers, just wanted to let you know that you aren’t the only one. #Meg
