Thank you all who answered me about my chronic pain and me needing a refill on my pain med. I saw my GP yesterday & he's referring me to a pain clinic, ordered another Lumbar CAT scan to see how much worse it's gotten and wrote me "one Rx" for my pain med. to last me till I get in to see the specialist at the pain ctr. They will need the results from my new CAT scan to understand partially what I've been going through. He confirmed I cannot have another MRI because of the wires & screws in my right rotar cuff tendons from that another fall & operation. Also, Fibromyalgia (spelled wrong the last time)-allergic to Lyrica, Neuropathy in back, legs & feet, osteoarthritis in left foot, right knee, right hip, fingers & hands, and I shake all over when I'm in pain. So, thanks again to all the people who responded about me going to a pain control clinic. That's exactly where he's sending me. God bless.
I'm so happy for you! Your doc has given you an rx to get you through until your appointment, which is great, it means he/she trusts you.
You and I have some similarities going on, I've Hair Afire neuropathy that makes my fibromyalgia look like a sneeze (just me, not judging anyone with fibro) it's so very painful. I know what you mean about "shaking" from the pain, it gets so bad at times that you think you can't bear it for one more second.
Very glad you will see a Pain Management Doctor!
most definately! this is a great place to find experienced people dealing with FM... it is very helpful having this resource to assist you in your journey with this disease. What works for us, may not work for everyone, and so on/so forth. I am only 26 years old. I worked so hard to get through school, but became an Occupational Therapist... It took years for a doctor to diagnose me and tell me what was wrong with me. I prayed, cried, HURT, and went through hell... With every doctor/psychologist in the book telling me that i was crazy, and the pain was all in my head. I thank God everyday for that doctor who decided to actually be a moral human being, and dug deep into my case and found out what was wrong with me! Between me knowing what was wrong, options of treatment, and this support group, I am able to live a great life, with a great support system.
YOu will find that the people on here including myself are actually caring and are more than happy to help you with ANYTHING within reason to ask for.. We are always here for you, so anything you need... PLease add me as a friend if you would like, and feel free contact me any time. WE're always here for you. All in the same boat, walking the same journey.. God bless. Will keep you in my prayers, and hope this pain center helps you build yourself back up to some RELIEF and a great quality of life.
