I have had unknown pain for about five months it started in my neck and went to my back and its a very bad burning constant pain and nothing seems to help it i have Percs 5mg and Oxys 10mg i have tried tylenol 3 also and did nothing I took 15mg perc and 1 oxy within a two hour peroid to help with the pain and i might as well of eaten skittles it had no effect whatso ever on me. My dr cannot figure out whats causing my pain so im fucking screwed im in agony almost all day long and cannot do anything i like to do its even hard to sit. Im going crazy as the pain never seems to go away very often and its always there. About 5 days ago i was stretching my legs because they were tight and i must of stretched them too far and now my calfs and hamstrings are in constant pain also and the pills dont even get rid of that. My legs cramp and burn and shake when i try to stand i cannot even stand still or it gets 10000% worse. Anyone have any idea whats wrong with me and what i can do? IM GOING CRAZY!
I had a similar thing happen only I live in the state of Indiana and in February we had a terrible ice storm I caught a fall for weeks on end I had burning and pain I took Dilaudid, Morphone, Opana, I took Norco for breakthrough it did nothing it seemed the more I took it was the exactly as you said I would have done as well eating candy.
about 3 weeks ago the doctor got some test results back and it showed where a disk in my back was causing the pain to radiate into my neck and shoulder, so the doctor decided to try me on prescription strength (800mg Ibuprofen every 6 hours) once I started this I finally started to get relief they said it and the combination of the narcotic decreased the inflammation and swelling, I know you didn't say anything about a fall but I am just wondering from what the doctor told me the kind of pain I was having they could have given me enough to float a ship and without using the anti-inflammatory things would not have improved, this may or may not help but when I see that you are in tthe kind of pain I was having then you will try and think of something that might be of help and be safe to use, it just might be worth talking to your doctor and seeing what he has to say. I hope whatever this is that you find relief soon!! Take care,
I think caringsonbj is right on. Trying a nonsteroidal anti inflammatory (NSAID) might just be the solution to your pain. Might I also recommend physical therapy. You have to have a doctor write a presciption for it then you can take it to a physical therapy center of your choice. They will teach you appropriate stretching and strengthening exercises and apply heat and or ice so to alleviate the pain and inflammation.
Have you thought about getting the opinion of a specialist such as an orthopaedist? They may be able to do a more thorough evaluation then the general doctor.
Good luck and hang in there, you can figure this out,
When you mention burning that sounds like nerve pain and narcotic medications won't do much for nerve pain. Medications Neurontin, Lyrica, Cymbalta and Savella help some with nerve pain so you might start with one of those. The primary thing you need to do is to figure out the cause of this pain. Go to a neurologist, a pain management doctor or best is a physiatrist - a doctor that specializes In the way your body moves and they are excellent in diagnosing and treating pain and nerve problems. You don't want these symptoms to go on and on - find the cause and start treatment as soon as possible so you won't be miserable forever. Best wishes to you.
u have gotten great advise here !i was gonna say may be a muscle relaxer would help .some times it's just a matter of finding the right kind of pain meds to help!if u ease the muscle then maybe ur legs wouldn't hurt so much!as for ur neck and shoulder it could be a number of things from a pulled muscle to nerve damage or even problems from ur back causing ur pain!please if u r still in pain return to ur doc and ask him to run a ct-scan on u to see what is going on!
good luck & God bless
