Yes this is chronic pain going on for years. I think the problem is the hydrocodone isn't working anymore and so I am taking more and more. I took 6 yesterday. Just trying to get some relief. I am going to have to talk to my Dr. to which I see in March. I've tried taking 800mg of motrin but that isn't doing anything either.
I've already had 2 back surgeries on my back and 3 surgeries on my left knee. I was told all they can do for my left knee is put in a knee replacement. My right knee pain is new as it is popping like going out of place almost bringing me to the ground.
Then I have my neck pain to which I had surgery on 3 years ago to repair and fuse 3 disks.
I also have pain in my left forearm with a lot of weakness going from my hand to my elbow. Dr. doesn't know about that yet.
I have been taking Hydrocodone for quite awhile for pain management,. I believe I am addicted to it. One pill every 4 house isn't enough to take my pain away anymore. I take 3 at a time and it not only helps the pain but I like the way it makes me feel. I also see a therapist for depression and she tries to get me off it and stop taking it as it makes my depression worse. I'm at the point in my life I don't care.
Went to the Dr. today about my fractured leg. He said it was a bad fracture and not healed yet. I have to continue wearing the air cast, The big clod hoping thing. Was hoping I could go back to my sneakers at least. I've been in the cast for 4 weeks already. BBView Thread
I fell down the stairs 2 months ago but just had it checked out about a month ago. I'm in an aircast up to my knee. It's feeling okay while in the aircast but when I have it off my ankle kills. Especially when sleeping and turning and pushing on my leg to turn over. I'm 48 years old. The pain pills don't work and they actually keep me awake at nignt.
I fractured the bone above my ankle. I don't know how I did it. I'm in an air cast for a month to 6 weeks. Maybe it is starting to hurt more because the swelling is finally going out of it. BBView Thread
I have severe foot pain in my left foot. It came on suddenly. I didn't do anything to it. I really think I pulled tendons in my foot. Just don't know what to do to fix it. I ice it everyday because of the swelling. I told my husband I'm going to end up in the emergency room because I can't get into the Dr.s working around my schedule. It doesn't help that I'm on my foot all day at work.
I am in severe Knee pain. I've had many surgeries. I need a full knee replacement but my Dr. isn't ready to do the surgery yet. So in the meantime I suffer. I'm ready for a second opinion. Pain is so severe. My knee is very weak and my knee cap doesn't move very well. Does anybody know of any exercises to strengthen my knee. Does anybody know of some medication to take away some of the pain.
I've heard of this medication creme called Neuragen, has anybody heard of it.
I have so much pain in my left leg. I've had surgery 3 times on my knee 2 major surgeries. I need a knee replacement. I injured my left foot when I fell down the stairs and my foot just slid down the stairs hitting each step. The pain and swelling are in the bottom of my foot upper part. It's swollen and have some numbness in my toes.
I went to the mall today and my foot and leg hurt so bad walking awhile on it gave me great pain to a point I was limping and my leg was getting weak the more I walked.
I had a cortizone shot in my knee 3 weeks ago and don't even feel like I had it anymore.
