I don't know what kind of pain I have...My head is sitting on a bad place. The pain that I feel in my neck and shoulders is nerve pain, I guess.
Many doctors don't believe it because they can't see it.
How do you take Morphine to help with your Methadone? My doctor says to take it
midway between Methadone. Let me know how YOU take it. OK?
Best way to say what kind of pain I have is "It Hurts, but nobody believes me!" Unfortunately, that is too true. No one around me takes me 100% at my word, although my wife does ANYTHING I ask, trying to help and to understand.
Pam, you make an amazing statement: "Many doctors don't believe it because they can't see it.
". The amazing thing is, it is true. Even the doctors charged and paid to take care of that pain, sometimes don't know what to do because they can't see it.
I didn't realize it when I asked the question here, but that may be exactly what I was looking for.
How do I take them? (Methadone & Morphine) At the same time, oddly. The time it takes to digest them, the time it takes them to settle in and start working.
Again, this may be something that only my PM of all the people in the world understand, but FOR ME it works. And yes, when I learned what Methadone was actually all about
and how it interacted with Morphine, I was amazed that it actually worked.
When I have B/T, I take it whenever the B/T raises its ugly head. I cannot take more Morphine on top of the Morphine I am taking (at the same time) for the B/T (my PM was very explicit about
this at my appointment this last week when I asked). I am getting more and more B/T to the point that I will just be taking it every 4 hours on schedule rather that feeling for B/T. I think it must be time to raise dosage of something, but don't ask me what.
And I could easily have misunderstood the PM about
Morphine adding on top of what I am currently taking.
As I had hoped, I am continuing to understand more and more as you respond, and I greatly appreciate you all sharing your fount of knowledge.
