Yep, up all night. I'm exhausted now. Jim, are you talking about
Emetrol? I used to live on that stuff, but when I developed diabetes I understood it was not good for diabetics. I too have had debilitating migraines since I was 12 years old. It's so much different, but it's all pain! I have another question for all of you. When I go into the pm group and they ask how much pain I'm in with my meds, I've always put 7-8 and without I've put 9-10. I know pain well. I've been through some things that taught me that there are levels way far past a 10 that there isn't even any crying anymore, just delirium. So, if I put on my sheet each week that I am at a level that high with and without my meds, why in the world have they not addressed it more aggressively? Any ideas? I'd like to get an idea what kind of pain level many of you consider yourselves. I mean, looking at the happy face/sad face chart, I'm the levels they say. I have had the following procedures at least once and with some 3 or even 4 times. Radiofrequency Treatment (but it was called something more than that), Selective Nerve Root Block, Trigger Point Injections, and Nerve Root Block. I know I've had a couple more procedures, but I can't remember them all. I had little to no relief from any and on most, I would swell up in my neck to the point I could almost not breathe. We (my husband and I) figured out that I was allergic to Marcaine and by that time, the dr was just finished with me. Now I only see NP’s. Anyway, I’d be very
open to knowing what others rate their pain. Thanks again you guys.
