to throw in the towel because I can't sit, stand or walk for any length of time. After P.T., injections, and surgery I still have very little relief. The Doctors still want to go through the same motions about treatments and I can't make them understand that it is not working. I have been put on Lyrica, Gabapentin, Cymbalta, Soma, Mobic and other anti-inflammatory meds. and they still want to prescribe them. Now my primary care doctor wants me to go to a pulmonary doctor and neurologist. Financially, it's taking a toll because of missing work and with no results from the last neurologist. I can't get financial help or no help from doctors, so I decided to just live with it and make my quality of live zero. Do I need to continue with the doctors or just deal with it? Thanks, Dan from Alabama
I want to start off by saying Go! Crimson Tide! Go Alabama. Ok now never give up hope. You're still young and have a long life ahead of you. If it were me I would do any and everything possible to get rise of the pain. I also have extreme pain. Some of it goes away with medicine while some doesn't. Like the pain in my hip that goes down to my leg. I've come to the conclusion that I just have to live with that pain. Sorry I'm rambling now. Every doctor has a different opinion even if they're in the same field. So yes try the new neurologist. It doesn't hurt to try. So to speak. I wish you all the luck in the world and hope your pain comes to an end soon. Pepper
