I disagree with that statement as every day I deal with the thought of suicide. Every move I make, every step,or even when I raise my arms pain unimagenable shoots though my body. Torture is the best description for what I live in.I am not trying to complain or gain sympathy but rather paint a small picture of what my life is like. Help if you can,but if you cant then I'll know that all DR.S are the same. Thank you Exavior.
hi dude, yea i was told that for 3 years. my family even drove me to detox. when i was in there they took me off the morphine and told that pain builds character. and if i want sobriety i should walk up and down the stairs and make every meeting in the rehab. 2 days into my new life both my knees swelled up to the size of canalopes. on my way to the hospital in the ambulance the doctor told me i was in danger of blood clotes going to my brain. the next day they put me on 24mg of suboxone and 100 mg of elivil 2x a day. from that day on i was told that my character must have been built some time in the middle of the night when i was sleeping. never let some doctor or counciler tell u how u feel...
Today I was doing research on pain and I came across this statement.
It said that many people do not respond to pain killers. They went on to state that the lack of Vitamin D was keeping you from getting the effects of pain killers.
Gosh, I had not heard this before, as I have done much medical research over the years. They say that 75% of all people tested are low on Vitamin D.
Keep taking your pain medicine but ask your doctor to check on your Vitamin D. You may need the both of them.
I pray that this works for you, and that someday you will be free from pain.
i know what you mean about people saying get over it . i tell them i wish they could walk a mile in my shoes . my dad was disabled in vitnam and has had 28 major operations he knows what pain is . but he says because he dont take pain meds he dont think anyone else should . he is so hateful because he wont take pain meds because he dont want to be a addict . he puts a tag on everyone who takes pain meds . he has caused me a good dr when i first hurt my back 10- years ago . he made the dr mad because he called the dr and told him that he percribed pain meds to anyone who walked thru his dore and that i was too young . but he didnt think about that my back was really hurt or the dr wouldnt have gave me pain meds . so i have lernt the hard way dont tell anyone what pain meds your on or who your dr is . cause it takes just one call to your dr to get you dismissed and the dr dont care if its a lie or not they just care about theirselves .
your pain is not in your head sometimes you feel all alone when you hurt just find a good support group on here and vent all you need to cause we know what your going thr and we dont judge you cause we are going thru what you are going thru . ill keep you in my prayers
i had a nervous breakdown before my pain management and my shrink finally got together and figured out my pain & depression cocktail medications it's almost a year later now and i'm still going to the same doctors we have built a trust i know it's hard for some to get to that point but if you can it's great i know if you can try and chat with barbles2413 she can give you some hints on how she handles her doctors it helped me. let me assure you i felt the same pain your feeling this time last year and there is help out there i just hope you find it real soon i'll say a pray for you, missy
I am so angry by that statement and have experienced the unbelievable ignorance we pain patients face. We are in a constant worry not to say the wrong thing to the doctor. Not to ask for a increase in meds unless you time it right. After 29 years of all this and 14 in severe tortuous pain. I would love for the idiots who say these things to live a day, an hour with what we deal with and it's not just the pain. It's everything because the efin pain effects every aspect of our life from happiness, sadness, tears, constipation, sweating, blurry vision,tooth decay, WEIGHT GAIN.WE probably spend more hours in bed then not. as i do. Now living in a wc for 14 years has caused other problems and it's a domino effect and we can only deal so long.Ya that's all in out head like i was told about my severe phantom pain wondering how I survive it and the nurse said It's All In Your Effin Head and slammed the door.
Well you idiot yes our pain is in the brain ans spinal cord but she meant it as the meanest sarcasm and truly believed I dreamt this up. I better stop because I could write a book. Pain is flaring
Thanks. Staci --One more thing I HATE THE STATEMENT BY THE IGNORANTS_GOD NEVER GIVES YOU MORE THEN YOU CAN HANDLE! God never gave it to us in the first place. I am fired up from all the memories of 1400 days in the hosp. 68 operations, 23 broken bones, 3 months in the burn unit. hundreds of hours in rehab after every op.then amputation in 1996 and over 200 prosthetic app. sweating and drenched from side effects. in so much pain I thought and still think I never hurt this bad when I went thru all I said. That's acute pain and it was hell but a continuous life draining pain is a much worse torture then all the above. I have anger at the medical system. Anger that we only have one life and they could help give some of it back to us but don;t and make one go years before they even think about something new.and when I hurt I think back alot. Don;t have to many fun memories to think about. So far and few that I remember them all. Bless you all
Thia is in a discombobulated order but you get it. WE ALL GET IT. When will the doctors wake up. Not all Dr.'s but when you try to find the right one-OH your a doctor shopper. These MD's need to come on here and see what we are going thru. They went to medical school for years. Well then do your job and give me some relief so yes Pain can kill, Also pain changes the brain and all the dress. Who knows anymore
No, not all doctors are the same. I have been seeing my medical doctor for years and he is very understanding to each problem I have at that time. Sometimes it takes searching for the doctor who fits your needs. Ask others around you like your co-workers maybe they might help.I had this one arthritis doctor come in stick my x-rays in the light and told me I had no business being in his office. I went there because I was referred by neuro doctor. I was so mad that as I was leaving, I shouted I would'nt bring my dog here!!!
