Hi Rachel, I have endured adhesions for over 10 years. I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia and spina bifida occulta. I have been to 2 pain clinics but find that my primary care physician to be as knowledgeable about my chronic pain. I feel that is the first step, to have a doctor or surgeon that is well informed about your situation and compassionate to your needs. I have tried many different pain meds. What has worked best for me is hydrocodone for pain and elavil for sleep. I take flexeril which is a muscle relaxer when needed. The only problem is I have intestinal adhesions and frequent bowel obstructions so I have to keep my bowels moving. Pain meds are constipating. You and your doctor will have to experiment to find out what works best for you. Good luck! Sherry Marie
