hello i have been on vacation here in maine. I have been doing something different than i do at home. i don't get as motivated at home. up here i do and i go swimming everyday. I sleep better i enjoy myself b etter and use less meds too. I take vicadan and morophine 15 er. I take vicadan 5/500 when needed. When i first came here a week ago i was taking one or two each day. Swimming is a huge part of the healing of fibromyalgia. I usto have terrible pains from IBS but that was a long time ago. I don't have it no more. Thank God. I really feel for you guys that do. I do hae alot of problem with lossing weight. I am lucky that my doctor says nothing about it. I finally realized that it is not what a text says i should weigh but what is right for me. eat as healthy as possible. I eat fruit one week i try one fruit such strawberries which i find that i really love. Then blueberry which i like but i don't like but it self but if i have on my pancakes muffins etc. Or in a parfait.

Think about moving i know it is a bad word with fibro but what ever you can do don't push your slef at first but eventially you will be surprise how much you can do. even if it is a few more steps then yesterday. Praise yourslef everyday. Stay away from I shoulds
that gets you no were. feel good about yourslef. I don't care what other might say or might stare at you. They are the ones who have the problem. YEHA!!!!!!!!!!!

love you all

I am working with my pain management group and have found some relief from a newer narcotic pain medication called Nucynta. I am able to use it only as I need to. This is in addition to my Ultram ER everyday.
As for Creon, that's one I haven't heard anything about. I will ask my rheumatologist when I see her in a month. It's not unusual for a few people to get relief when taking other non-label drugs, but I don't think this one is going to help with the pain directly. It may help with IBS which causes me a lot of abdominal pain and after reading the description of Creon, it may help me since I've had gastric bypass.
I'll post again if I find anything or when I speak with my specialists. Hope you find relief soon!

Hi Anonymous,
I am sorry to hear that you are in such pain. Fibromyalgia is a severe and sometimes disabling chronic pain syndrome and often the pain is managed by narcotic pain killers such as Vicodin.

Please visit our Fibromyalgia page here http://www.empowher.com/search/google?cx=007544384767083790728%3A2otat3sg2a8&cof=FORID%3A9&query=Fibromyalgia&form_build_id=form-ca16a78e60d56e05c944f76953114b9a&form_token=3745e01df1f43e1402eeb5478844a232&form_id=google_cse_searchbox_form#739/.

You indicated that you heard about Creon to help fight fibromyalgia pain? Creon is a medication used to help digest foods in the digestive tract. Unfortunately, I did not find specific information about Creon and help with fibromyalgia patients. Was this prescribed by a doctor or is this an open clinical trial that you heard of?

I hope this helps.
