First, i am so sorry that you are going through this. second, i am sorry that you aren't getting any relief from your pain.
i promise you, i was on here feeling the same thing a few months back, and i'm not try to answer for other people, but i know there are many on here who are in your pain, and there are many people who cannot get up and do anything either.
now, i just had my first and longest "break" from pain in 2 years. i've had a day here and again, but not really. in this pain, i averaged, still over a 6 in pain daily, and that ranged from a 9 to a 3 throughout the day. now, i know i have been one of the people that says i'm going to be in pain moving, or i'm going to be in pain moving around. that is not true for me on all days, and only when i'm in "remission". otherwise, forget it, i cannot move. i have been on the couch since Thursday night. Except a little sleep.
ok, i wanted to say that i was on hydrocodone 10's before they moved me to oxycontin. i used percocet for post op pain, but hydro for the other. my pain dr would not want me to be in the pain that you are in. myself, personally, i tend to lie to my doctor because i do not want to go up very high on pain meds. but i'm on 120 mg/oxycontin, 20 mg/oxycodone, and soma. i also take other meds
i started abilify and it seems that triggered a remission, but as i had a feeling it was only temporary. the things that i have been able to do have been only temporary and i have not been able to do them since all of this started with me 2 years ago. never before did i understand the whole ideology that you have presented here. and i have demonstrated here and read myself.
but i would like to say that you have been great support for me, and i'm more than happy to try and return the favor, please be more of an advocate and tell your pain dr this is no more acceptable. has your blood pressure been going up with your pain? he should see you if it is out of control. also, can you go to the er, tonight? for me, i'm allowed to go to the er without it violating my pain contract. maybe it is time for a new dr.
are you able to change dr's, meaning is there another dr around your area? ok, this is enough for now, but i'll be watching for you.
