During these 6 1/2 years of Intractible Chronic Pain, I have always had bone spurs
all down my spine and on my shoulders.
Lately, they've gotten much worse. So much worse that I'm considering surgery ...
But what can the doctors do? Get out their emory board and file away.
For the uninitiated, bone spurs feel like someone is sticking you in the back and
shoulders with pins.
I injured my spine and shoulders with improper use of a ****su massager. I also
have other pain problems in my back.
I hate to take more Methadone. That's nasty stuff but has been fairly effective.
Of course, it's not like I can just go to my Pain Doctor and place an order.
Pamela is open for suggestions

If you can stay off of the pain meds do it!! I would consider surgery if it would help me, but it wont. I guess do some research on the surgery the doctors suggest and if it will keep you off the pain meds then do it! I am 26 and my liver is almost shot from pain meds so i wish they had more surgery to help me.  Nothing is worse than withdrawal.  My prayers are with you!

I withdrew from Oxycontin. No fun. But it wasn't as bad as I'd heard.
The worst thing was that bone-chilling thing.
I was under a doctor's care but he was sadistic. Really.
My next doctor agreed with me.
