Bet, this might be what you asked for for monitoring programs. It's very interesting program that is active in my state Tennessee. It still does not stop drug abuse cause some doctors here don't even use it. My pain management doctor looks up my Rx's every time I see him.
Are you even thinking about having a total hip replacement. I had on done 8/11/08 and the pain is now zero, nil, none. Tens units do well on lumbar back for me but never put it on my hip. You should talk to someone about surgery. You will never regret the alleviation of pain like you will have with a THP. Hope all goes well.View Thread
I know how you feel, I eventually had to have a total hip replacement. Has anyone given you a diagnosis of bursitis, AVN or Perth's Legge disease? You might want to push someone to give you a diagnosis so you can tell if you need to go to an orthopedic hip specialist or pain management like CT Beth said. Have they offered to do cortisone injections? Hope you can find your answers, we can't diagnose over the internet only give you thoughts about how to handle it from our own prospective and experience. Hope all goes well.

I have been on Nucynta for almost 2 years now and it works wonderfully well for me. It is definitely an opiate. I do not have a problem being physically dependent on a medication that helps me be able to function in the world. 75mg Nucynta is equivalent to taking 15mg of Lortab, I was told that by the pain management doctor. As long as you take your medication as prescribed and legitimately need pain medication you will not get addicted just dependent. You are not taking it to get high, you are not an addict. I hope all goes well. Take good care,View Thread
I know pelvic pain can be very uncomfortable but this is a question that you should be talking to your gynecologist about. If you have an IUD you DEFINITELY need to discuss this with your GYN. No one can diagnose you over the internet and we are not physicians. I hope that you can find out what is wrong. Take good care,View Thread
There is always a possibility that you are having a slight withdrawal because of being reduced 2.5 milligrams of your medication. And Soma is extremely addictive and the FDA has been trying to get it off of the market for a long time. Europe has already banned Soma for the same reason they banned Darvocet. You are much better off on Zanaflex. Hopefully you will have less and less symptoms as the days go on. I hope you do well.View Thread
This is a very interesting subject that was on Dr. Oz today. It is called Sea Buckthorn Berry and it calms the mucosal tissue in the body. I am copying and pasting a paragraph that says it also helps with UC. I thought that it might be beneficial to my UC friends in this community. It also helps calm irritated gums and canker sores. You can google the name and read the articles yourself. I hope this might help someone in here.
Sea Buckthorn Berry (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) has been found to be an extremely rich source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, flavonoids, carotenoids, and essential fatty acids! Over the centuries sea buckthorn oil has been used as a folk remedy and food source by many Asian cultures. This amazing berry has numerous reported medicinal uses*. It has been used as a healing remedy for many ulcerative and inflammation-related disorders such as canker sores, sore throat, peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, and inflammation of the cervix. Russian cosmonauts have even taken the oil while in orbit.
