Customer Question
I am 43 years...

I am 43 years old and so fed up for all my medication, I dont know what to do and sometimes the medication is not helping. Was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2006, pain from head to toe. Could not have children, was born with abnormal colon and had a total colectomy in 2013, hysterectomy in 2011 and hernia in 2015, I am eating very carefully for the diarrhea and dehydration. I am in so much pain and dont have energy. Cant sleep at all. Get migraines, always nashua sometimes throwing up just green water which I know I did not put in my mouth and lots of pain then under my breast, dont know if it relates to the mech used with hernia. My medication: morning Tramacet, Cymgen 60mg, Concerta 54mg, Evening Tramacet, Rivotril 2mg, Dormicum 30mg. This is now before I was on stronger meds but gain weight. I sometimes feel that it is not worth living but my husband and I adopted a girl in 2005. The thoughts are there everyday but then I think what it will do to her. I am just so tired of all the meds and pain and diarrhea and migraines with the nauseous feeling non stop. I really don't know what to do next or who to see as I think there is no Specialist that I did not see yet.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
