I am wondering if anyone is going through what I am experiencing. I need a second opinion however medicare will not cover new dr. visit for 2nd opinions. I had been on pain medication off and on for 15 yrs. since a serious tumble down a stairwell. The drs in my town are no longer willing to prescribe pain meds. I have serious weakness and pain in my arms and legs my new dr. diagnoised me as having fibromyalgia. I was put on Lyrica and at first it seemed to work a little however after being on it for 8 mths. it no longer seems to work and I have gained 30 lbs. Does anyone have any suggestions ? thank you
