I am a 65 yr old female with fibromyalgia for over 30 yrs. It affects all aspects of my life. Right now, the cold weather makes it much worse. It is hard for me to get out of the bed. The exhaustion is more than I can explain.I feel like I am dying while moving in slow motion.I am also diabetic,have had carpel tunnel for over 20 yrs and the last few months have has much pain in my hands. Have arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure and several other things. Any nDr I have gone to in this area doesn't"believe" in Fibromyalgia. About 12 yrs ago, I started seeing a pain management Dr.He put me on oxycontin and oxycodone which did not completely stop my pain but helped very much.A few months ago, I decided to get off of these meds and am in the process of being weaned off of them. Now, I am scared to death of being back in the horrible pain without meds and no Dr to turn to. I suffer from depression from having no life and don't know what to do. Any help you could provide would be apprec
