Question: Pain Medication
Is there anybody that has experienced overall improvement on pain medication? Not just the pain goes away, but I have felt more energetic, better focus, appetite increase (not using medicinal marijuana).
In addition - I have seen quite a few patients that have fibromyalgia AND a type of IBD. Is there a genetic link the two? Could the pain from IBD be getting misdiagnosed as fibro? Is the extra-intestinal manifestations that significant a pain that it impacts a patient more significant than expected?
An association between fibromyalgia and IBD has not been reported to date in the medical literature.
