Diazepam 10 mg up to 3 a day an for bi-polar stavzor 500mg 2×day an can take PETCO 10-325 mg for break Thur pain. But they don't work. So tired of pills... I have a very high tolorance,to meds. There has to be something out to help.I can't imagine spenting the rest of my life like this..Totally at a loss... thxs for listening an am willing to try anything else.that maybe I'm unaware of...
Connie, Just as KM said you are not alone. My only hope is in my faith and my family that helps me one day at a time.
Chronic pain is horrible, it takes a mighty toll on us physically and emotionally, but giving up is not an option for us. I shall keep you in my prayers dear.
I feel for you! I feel in the same boat. I've been having terrible pain flares the last couple months (worse than my usual) and it is terrible to hurt every darned day every minute. You feel sometimes that it is going to consume you. We (my pain doc and I) are trying to rotate to some different meds. I was good on Oxycontin for years then I thought switching to morphine was the answer and it was for a few months then it stopped working, and we tried Exalgo this month which hasnt worked well at all. I'm supposed to go back this week so we'll see what happens then. Try not to be discouraged, talk to your pain doc. Living in Florida adds an extra barrier for you, I know. I have heard from many patients there that it is hard to even get pain management because of all the Pill mills that were in that state. Have you tried Fentanyl patches yet?
