Please Help Fibro Warriors!!
I just love these little games my health insurance plays every so often since my doctor raised my Gabapentin for my Fibromyalgia to the highest dose of 3,600 mg a day many months ago. When I go to call it in, they won’t fill it for another ten days. This leaves me over a week with no meds, terribly ill, and at great risk for seizures. Not a med you can cold turkey without paying the consequences. When they will fill it in ten days, they will only fill 90 pills. I currently take 12 of them a day. Obviously, this does not add up at all. This is a last resort Fibro med as I did not do well on the others and had heavy side effects with them. I’ve been trying to be better at advocating for my own health this year but I’m just not getting anywhere with it. Any Fibro Warriors out there have any advice for me? Have done Cymbalta and Lyrica. Also have had gastric sleeve surgery at then end of 2021. Suffer from migraines, Bipolar II, depression, anxiety, PCOS, arthritis, and my thyroid bounces around all over the place as well. I am on Disability and on state insurance. I am open to any advice! Thank you!! #Fibromyalgia #meds #treatments #Neuropathy #MultipleDisabilities
