OK take a breath tonijo, it is going to be alright.

First of all, welcome to the forum. I'm glad you posted. I have to admit though, that I had to read it through twice, slowly. It is a hard read for me.

I understand that you were advised to see a pain management specialist. What is swollen reinkes space Please?? Remember pain management doctors can do more than prescribe medications. Make sure you have a good doctor who listens to you. Most of them are good, but once in a while you hear of one that does not pay attention and this can cause severe frustration for you and you don't need that. Right??

I can relate to your pain for sure. I have bad bad pain in my feet and legs every single day and I take percocet and lyrica every day to combat that pain. I never set out to take percocet every day, but it helps and that is what I have to do to combat the painful times.

So you hang in there and don't get ahead of yourself before you check out your pain management doctor. He or she just may help you out. I hope so and am sending a prayer for everything to turn out to be helpful. God bless and keep us posted on what happens ok?? We really do care.

Hi Tonijo2; I too want to welcome you to our little group. We seem to be growing more and more each passing day and some days it is hard to keep up with the new people that come to get answers here. I sometimes don't catch the new posts and to those that I have not caught I apologize and say Hello and welcome to HW. I want to reassure you Tonijo2 that you are not alone here. There are many of us living with pain, whether it be in our backs like me or whether it be in our faces like you or other places. There are some here that have multiple conditions that they are dealing with and some are just so messed up that my heart just breaks thinking of what they deal with each day. But the one thing that we all share together is that we all have pain and that each one of us are looking for other that are in pain to share our experiences....our thoughts and our frustrations with. You have come to a place that can give you lots of help in this. We laugh.....we cry.....we get silly....we vent and we lean on one another when the times are really tough.

I hope that you will stay and we can help you find the answers that you are looking for as well as we can get to know you. Keep posting as you go along and I hope you find the best Pain management doctor that you can find to help you find the right course of pain meds that work for you. :-)
