I am unable to fine any help with my chronic fatigue, pain, fibromyalgia after being abandon from a pain clinic that said that they were going to take a chance of getting trouble with the FDA for the amount of medication it took for me to maintain. I am 61 yrs. old have no family or childern to help me. And it looks like that I will have to go to a rest home, because I am not able to take care of my self with any medication to get up and take a bath or most any thing. I was doing pretty good until the new prescription law of FDA passed and scared every one and now no one wants to help me. What should or can some one like me do to even help myself? My e-mail Is YYYY@YYYY

Welcome to XXXXXXX
I understand your situation. I dont know how I will be able to help you. I wonder if you can consider doing alternative medicine options such as acupressure or yoga which may increase your pain tolerance. The dosage of the pain medicine go on increasing with duration. It has lots of side effects. I would suggest to consider different treatment options other than medicine option.Thanks.

I will do or try anything to help my self,because I am no longer able to help my self and have called so many places that don't want to talk to you because they are all full up and can no longer take any more patients. In 6mo. I will be 62 yrs. old and can get a reverse morage on my home and pay for some decient care, but I still don't know where to start. Is there some one that you all know of that can treat the whole person that has chronic pain, fatigue, fibromyalgia,depression.I am so weak that I can hardly get to the bath room and back. Then I am completely worn out. I am trying all I can to find some one with no results. There has to be some one out there that can help me. Do you know of any one, any where that helps people in my condition. If you can think of or find any place any where please let me know. Thank you !!! XXXXXXX
