Carpal tunnel usually effects the longer middle fingers with tingling. The ulnar nerve(elbow) effetcts the pinky. The heating pad wrapped around the wrists help me, but mine are beyond help. Three failed surgeries and missed diagnosis of other nerve injuries have made my injuries permenent. You have to have a FULL(cover the arm / wirists and neck to get the right diagnosis. This requires a doctor not rushing to surgery.
Hi, I have many injuries that have been treated well by a pain amnagement doctor with injections and Darvoset as needed. Since the ban, I asked for Tramadol(my mistake). It made me feel very sick and didn't touch the pain. I shouldn't have requested anything. I faxed doctor that it didn't work and this time didn't ask for anything. I am disgusted and even tried no pain maeds, but it is not easy even with self-hypnosis. Any advice on how to proceed. Should I just let doctor suggest med? I have had bad reactions to codene, neurontin, garpendine, Lyrica, and Tramadol. Dravoset actually worked for me in unison with the injections. I am still taking them since I have some left.
