Hi. I'm not sure if this will help and maybe he's already tried this but he could try heat and or ice therapy everyday. Sometimes you have to do it for a while to get the best results. He could also try some type of massager.
Hopefully there will be others write in with better avenues of help.
I hope you get the help that you're looking for and he gets some relief. Tell him to stay away from taking too many over the counter pain meds otherwise he may just add to his trouble.
I feel so bad for you!! I wish there was more that I could do to help!.
I don't know how far away you are from the Cleveland Clinic but if it's not too far, maybe you could try there???? Maybe your local hospital could refer you to a good dr. that will take your insurance???
There has to be a dr. somewhere that you can go to....you can't be the only person needing a pain mgt. dr.
I completely understand your frustration with the "loss" of your prior life! I also understand you thinking about trying medicinal mj. I wish that were legal in my state of NC. I know it would help me.
I'm glad you have the incentive to be the best for your child.
Don't give up! Never give up! I will be praying for you!
I am sooo glad that you seem to have gotten it all straightened out! I hope this new pm dr. works for you and you get your pain back under control. I'm sure your pain was an 11 if you were that sick with no pain meds!
