Okay, a few months ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. My dr had put me on Lyrica and it has been helping quite a bit. However, I've been having a lot of problems with my period that the Lyrica does not help with. Since my first period (when I was 12, I am now 19), I have always been irregular. However, in December when I started my period, I was in excruciating pain. Worse than normal. Since December, my period has been regular and I am in so much pain! It feels as if my spine is going to burst open.
Since I've been having so many problems, I decided that I would go to the ER when I got my next period and have them check to make sure it isn't anything to worry about. Well, I just started it about an hour ago, but the pain isn't as bad because I took some tylenol with codeine that my mother had given to me (I didn't think that I would start today), and so the pain is dulled down a little bit. Normally I can't walk and I am crying, but the codeine has made it so that I'm in a lot of pain, but I'm not crying yet. Should I wait for the medicine to wear off before I go to the hospital, or should I just go now. I'm just not sure because I want them to see the full extent of the pain and take me seriously.
