Hello my fellow CP friend,
I can understand how you feel. Some days just bring us to the brink of what we can stand and this seems to have been one of those days (or series of days). When I started taking my MScontin (perhaps that is the same as the Morphine you are taking....if it is controlled released), it took a little while to get any true pain relief. I also started on the same dose you are taking and I would now like them to raise the MSContin a little to help. I have found that (after getting it into my system well) the MSContin keeps me from having such intense pain all of the time. It does not work in th esame way as the immediate release meds, but keeps my pain level down say another point or two overall. Like in the mornings, when it was way beyond a 10, now it is a steady 8-9, but only a 10 on the worst mornings. It may not sound like much, but it is to me.
As far as the shots, perhaps you will see better results from them since they seem to have produced so much soreness. i have more shots on the 22nd and can only hope they willl work as well as the others. The pain of my injections or RFA's seems to directly correllate to the lasting relief I get.
I hope you will find relief soon from the agony you seem to be suffering. You are not alone.
