I have had fibromyalgia for a long time. I was diagnosed in 1996. Injections helped for a few years and i also took opoid medicines plus patches but i slept 16-18 hrs a day. So i went off them. Then in 2006 i was diagnosed with Pmr also so the pain has been so bad i can hardly stand it. Actually my rheumatologist doc put me on 40Mgs of prednisone today for 2days and then i drop down five mgs every 2days to see if that helps.
