Hi there girl! I sometimes take a flexiril to help me relax (had some from when I hurt my back). Have you tried stretching in a pool? I know that we have a community pool and just getting in it and walking helps my muscles melt. It has a warm therapy pool in it, which is great also! Also--go get a massage....you are not that far from Hot Springs and I know they are some great places there. Treat yourself to Arlington and get a hot bath and massage this weekend! 60 bucks plus gas.. not as much as some scripts. There are some schools there too that do it cheaper if you google it.
I am off zoloft and on welbutrin for pain at the moment. I think I will have to up my dose, but it makes me feel great until about 11 am and then I get the fibro pains back in my shoulders.
Oh--I remember talking to insurance people at school that you had to work 10 years and contribute to get full disability benefits. Don't know if you are there yet, but this is my 9th year, so I am just hoping that after VSG it helps, if not, then I guess that is an option, but I hate to think that I will go on disability.
Hope you feel better soon.
I will be happy with thighs that don't touch!
