Hi, this is my first post here.

I've been treated for severe fibromyalgia for the last 3 years. At that time, I was led through an exercise by a PT that SEVERELY twisted my trunk and tore all the muscles, ligaments and fascia on my sides and my mid-back. The pain was UNBEARABLE for about a month, and shortly thereafter settled into a chronic pain, all over my body, and specifically in my sides and back. I cannot stretch my trunk at all, lift anything over 5 pounds, push a vacuum, bend sideways or backwards in the least. I cannot even sleep in a bed because of the pain.

For the last 2 years, I have been prescribed 60 mg Avinza in the morning, and 30 more Avinza in the afternoon. Additionally, I take Endocet 10/325 once during the day and 2 at bedtime. And Neurontin 300mg 4x daily. Also Lunesta 3 mg for sleep, and Zanaflex 8 mg at bedtime.

Today, my regular doctor gave me an Rx for 100 mg Fentanyl patches to REPLACE the Avinza, keeping all other meds the same.

I just wanted to do a "sanity check" with other sources before I switch over to this highest dose of Fentanyl.

Any thoughts?
