I originally shattered my right elbow due to a fall from approximately 14 feet.Since then I have had 6 elbow surgies.have had lower back surgery.recently had an MRI on cervical spine. diagnose with to rupture disc herniated discpinched nerve which has added significantly more right shoulder and arm pain and now I'm suffering from left arm pain do not want to have surgery unless it's absolutely necessary. pain is totally out of control an insurance company will not cover Exalto without an exemption chill then I need to go on something substantially stronger than oxycodone 10 insurance company will cover fentanyl wants to know if anyone out there thinks it will help with my chronic pain had been in pain since the early nineties and I've tried ms contin with no success I'm tired of living like this. Was like someone else's feedback thank you.
Sounds like you're already on quite a lot of pain med. I have no idea what's causing your pain. I've only been administered Dilaudid when I was in the hospital after surgery. With me, it wasn't that it didn't help the pain, but how it made me feel otherwise. It made me depressed and I cried all the time. I requested they not use it, and asked for Darvocet instead. I think you need to address these questions to your doctor.
You would probably do better with an increased dose of oxycodone, preferably oxyconitin for extended pain relief. You would probably have been ok with an increase in fentanyl. You're not trying an increase in the meds you're on rather then trying a different med. Exalgo er is good for chronic pain. You're right its hard to get insurances to pay for the extended release medications.
I found that Exalgo worked better for me than Fentanyl patches(100mcg) and Opana. I was on two 16mg every day for almost a year. Now after a break from it and a change in my other medications, I now take two of the 32mg ones daily. I also prefer Exalgo to Oxycontin. It will definitely help with your chronic pain. My pain is off the charts bad now and I am preparing for another back surgery next month. Good luck to you and I hope it works for you to.
