I was a landscape contractor for 28 years on the Monterey Penniula Ca. Now I make and design jewelry and draw landscape designs. I moved to the Santa Ynez Valley five years ago and got married. Four years ago I was in a serious car accident. My pelvis was broken. It took about two years to recover. My fibromyalgia was ok during this period. I was taking medicaton, what I already taking and 1500 grams of Vicodin every 3 1/2 hours. I was in constant pain for over 30 years I ignored the pain as much as possible but it made me tired all the time. I did work with the pain.I was diagnosed after seeing everyone I could for pain, orthopedic, a psychiatrist, acupuncture, cortisone injected into my spine, massage, diet, chiropractor and a specialist where I was I was misdiagnosed. I finally went to a teaching hospital (Scripps) and was diagnosed by the head rhumatoligist. The last 3 years I have been taking mirapex I have had very few flare ups. Six months ago I had a full hip replacement. I have had a very slow recovery. I'm finally ,this week, walking with out a cane. I am having more fibro pain than I was before the hip surgery. My primary Dr. thought the pain hip and fibro were connected.
