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.
