I'm in so much discomfort right now. Been on prescription NSAIDs for 5 years for severe Fibro. Going cold turkey. Surgery in two weeks. Tylenol just isn't cutting it. Then I learn I have to change another staple med I have because it's an ER form but they don't make a non ER release form so my Dr needs to find a new/compatible med real fast. Shitz getting real

@@Tina1969 I went through Mayo's Pain Rehab a year ago because I have chronic pain due to a nerve condition called Thalamic Pain Syndrome. I have it as a result of a stroke I had 11/27/13. I'm on Gabapentin and Lyrica. They both come in liquid form. Have you ever been on either of them? I'm in 24/7 pain even with the meds but I can't imagine if I wasn't on them. They're actually membrane suppressants and not pain killers but I know Lyrica works for my best friend who has Fibro. Just an idea.

Lyrica comes in liquid form?!? I've been off my Lyrica for 6 weeks now and had been doing pretty well but I've started a fibromyalgia flare and it really sucks because Tylenol doesn't even touch it. Time to put in a call to my rheumatologist! :P

@@Tina1969, hope everything works out for you. I know living with fibro is no fun at all. The one thing that has helped me (until this flare) is that my rheumatologist prescribed a cream for me. It has a combination of things in, one being high dosage NSAID but since it's not ingested my bariatric surgeon said it's not a problem. I can't give you the name of it as it is made patient specific so there really isn't one. It's made by a place called Transdermal Therapeutics if that helps in talking to your rheumatologist. Good luck!

I also have a prescription for a cream. It is compounded by the pharmacy each time I refill. It is great for arthritis in my knee and for fibro.
