I have tried just about everything there is for pain, except for opioids. I was on Oxycodone for stomach and back issues in December 2016 thru February 2017, and that was the only time I had my pain under control to the pount that I could manage my daily routine and take care of my toddler without help. But my doctor will not prescribe it for Fibromyalgia or Chronic pain. Only Tramadol, which barely seems to work at all.
