I went to the pain doctor yesterday and he changed my prescription from lortab to percocet. It is helping my chest wall pain  from the costochronditis and also my back pain. It works better than the lortab and is managing my pain better. He wants me to have a full body scan done to see if I have inflammation anywhere else.I hope everyone has a lpd.
Lortab,ambien,elavil,reglan , neurontin,zyrtec and soma.

Kara good to hear you got some help. Now, perhaps you will feel better and your husband may calm down from all of this. Susie

Kara,
I truly hope your husband can at least be open to learning. Heck, lots of us aren't good with illness or pain, but we don't get to choose. I don't mean to judge him, but does he think about his commitment to the marriage? If so, then maybe reminding him that it goes both ways, you'd be there for him and that life has brought changes to your relationship and you really want to stay together. If the love in any way is still there try to reach deep in eachother for that and see what help you can get to guide you through this part of your life journey.

It's good to see someone that has a doc that will listen. Most of the doc's around here have been hit so hard by the drug addicts that they are really hesitant to prescribe anything when it is really needed.
Motorcycle wreck 08/2004: 119 fx, 13 surgeries with one more to go, including 5 bone grafts, 2 skin grafts, pelvic reconstruction x2. Right leg is 1.5" shorter than left. Have to wear knee brace for life and also AFO brace for drop foot. Nerve damage from hip down to toes, no feeling in lower leg. Spinal fusion. Will be on crutches the rest of my life. Pain level never below 5 even on pain meds. Since August 2007 I have been diagnosed with chronic atelactesis, tachycardia, high blood pressure, borderline personality disorder, depression and Delayed sleep phase syndrome

Wow do you folks get these pain medications, my doctor tells to take over the counter ibuprophen and acetominaphn even if i tell him I cant sit or stand for more that 5 to ten minutes at a time, i'm in pain 24 a day...

I'm going to see him soon any tips on getting actual pain killers that work.
Diabetic type 2
Scoliosis 5 degree deviation with osteoarthritis (very painful)
Sciatica from lumbar sprain;pain radiates all the way to the toes (very painful)
Broken toe that doesnt want to heal properly.
Headaches, anxiety, depression,fatigue, insomnia, etc....too tired to go on.

Kara, what type of doctor do you see for your spine...my family doctor never sent to me see a specialist. So i'm wondering if maybe my treatment would be better with a specialist.
I truly hope your medications work for you.

And you know husbands, when their sick, their dying; but when its us we're just complaining...I deal with that type too. We up here in Canada call it getting a man's flu is worse than a womans flu.
