Hello everyone, my pain began in 1983 with an injury at work and I have been dealing with chronic pain sence then. As the years gone by it has gotten worse the last three year the pain has gotten out of control and the last year the pain is getting unbearable. I have osteoarthritis in both hands, Fibro ( I just found out about
) bursits in both hips, bone spurs in both thumbs, and spine, I have nerve damage at C6, C7, L4, L5, S1 and both feet, C5,C6 is ruptuerd on to the spine,osteoarthritis in both hand, arthritis in my back & neck ,plus many other medical issues.
I have just fired my pain Dr. She refused to work with me on my meds., all they want to do is the shots, and I have enough nerve damage with out them wanting to do more. They almot lost me my disablty, her own note are condercting each other, she failed to tell me I had fibro, I had to leard it thru my arthritis Dr. The pain Dr. wanted to up the Lyirca after I told her it tore up my stomace, her remedy was to up my prolect. At the higher dose and upping the priloct it tore up my stomace. At the lower dose of Lyirca it worked great on my feet and some on my spine. I can not take any anit flmortory as they cause every joint to swell and hurt for days. I found a new MD that is going to work with me (I hope) after she gets all the medical reports.
I have found so much information from this board, I am glad to find it.
I am getting so fustrated right now to add to this pain I had surgery in May for a belly button herina repaired and it came back bigger and hurts worse, I am going to have another surgery. But I can not do alot of things any more because of the pain. I am a very out going person and very hard to keep down, but now I wake up in 10 pain level and takes at least 1-3 hour to calm down for the day. The by bed time I am hurting bad. I take a strong sleeping pill ( Seroquel 200mg to 400mg) depending on the pain and what my bipolor is doing. I new to the fibro but that explanes alot of what I go thru, so here I go researching it out.
Sorry for the long post thanks for being there.
