Hi guys! I don't post on here very often because I feel like I can't relate to most of what you guys are going thru. There are some of you that have it worse way off then me but I guess there is one thing we do share. I HURT every single frickin' day! Everything I deal with is in my signature btw.
But what gets me is this: I can not take anything besides Tylonel....that's it. Just Tylonel. Why? Because I am allergic or majorly intolerant of almost every pain med out there. Either I break out into hives, vomit my brains out or crash because it lowers my bp dangerously. Btw, if I ever get admitted to the hospital they give me morphine, but they have to keep the saline drip wide open to help my bp from crashing. Last time I had morphine my bp was 80/45....and then even after they discontinued the morphine, I couldn't stop vomiting.
I've been to specialist after specialist...pain clinics, had acupuncture, chiropractor, tried various supplements....you name it, I've tried it.
I guess I am just frustrated beyond belief right now because I had to go to urgent care today for what I thought was a stress fracture in my foot (x-rays can't determine) and the only thing they gave me was a Toradol shot. I'm not complaining because the Toradol shot did wonders for the swelling and pain in my foot, but the doctor was like, "If you can't take any of those things (she wanted to give me Tramadol but it lowers my bp AND makes me vomit and pass out), what do you normally rely on?"...Me: "Tylonel".
I guess I just needed to vent. I don't know why I posted on here honestly because I hardly ever get responses from you all. But like I said, I just wanted to vent to people that can understand what it's like to be in constant pain. Many of my friends don't understand and honestly I feel alone in this.
