I have had Fibromyalgia since I recieved the Anthrax Vaccine in prepration for deployment to Iraq. Your electrocution OP is of sincere interest to me
as a possible trigger. Very interesting.
I have NOT had luck with pain killers and recommend you try to avoid them, the side effects can be as bad as the pain. I am sorry to say that, I wish
relief was easier to find. If I am in extreme duress I will go to the ER for a Torodol injection - this is not a drug seeker medication so they are
happy to provide it to me and send me on my way. You may notice that diet effects your pain flares. I cannot tolerate the same diet I consumed
before. There is little sugar, corn syrup, potatoes, wheat, processed food in my diet - but that is just me - I notice I flare after I cheat - like
at Thanksgiving. I have spent thousands on supplements and methods trying to relieve the pain - much to no avail. Sleep is the best pain reducer,
unfortunately many with Fibro have sleep disturbance.I am disabled, and also suffer from Chronic Fatigue - so I have the ability to sleep for relief
when I need to. Just laying down and getting off your feet can feel like such a relief.
I want to go back to this electrocution issue - I think it is vital to expore avenues to calm your electric nervous system down. Accupressure,
Accupuncture - might really help you. Ironically I find relief with TENs or electric muscle stimulation they give me at the chiropractors. I have
had very good response to a type of body work known as Cranial Sacral - now some may dismiss this as a placebo - but I have tried so many paths these
past years and there is something very helpful about this modiality. It is an out of pocket expense though.
It will be a rough road ahead - that won't be easy. This is an invisable illness. The first years will be the hardest as you will have to adjust to
this condition. Meditation and other pain distracting methods can really help. I want to say that I hope you do not have Fibromyalgia and you are
correct this is an over reaction of your electric/nervous body system in response to your electrocution. Please feel free to private message me.
