I am scheduled for the injections Jan. 6, 13, and 20 and even though they are knocking me out for the shots, I am very anxious about it all as I do not know what to expect afterwards. Since I also have fibromyalgia if you kick up the pain in one area the whole body goes into a flare up. I cannot take any anti-inflammatories as I have had bad side effects from about all of them and all pain meds except darvocet make me very ill. I sparingly using what darvocet I have left so hopefully they will get me through the pain of the shots. If the pain following the first injection is too bad, I will cancel the following two as I am not going to be laid up and suffering for the whole month of January! Plus I just got back to exercising pretty vigorously every day and I hate to not be able to workout at all. At least now I am in therapy and on celexa for the depression and anxiety so that is at least helping one area.
