CVS has been very good to me. They have never given me a problem with filling my pain meds. I have had trouble getting pain prescriptions from many Dr.s and its because of the DEA. Dr.s are afraid that someone may abuse the med that they had prescribed and then wake up dead the next morning. The DEA may take their license. So we get screwed over, the Dr.s get screwed over, the drug abuser totally screw us over.View Thread
Hello CTBeth, I have a gyno and pain specialst but neither know how to treat my pain properly. My pain issue is vulva related but neither gyno nor pain specialist knows what to do when my pain level gets out of hand. As it is, the meds they have me on now dont work very well even when my pain levels are at a low 4. Im hoping to find the right med, or procedure or sursery to fix the problem and I wont ever have to think about the ER ever again.
Thanks for all the info. on the medication. Have a good day hunView Thread
Thank you hun. I never did go in to get the injection. Instead I took a Hydrocodone and Lorazepam and then sat on an ice pack. I was hurting so badly that I started hyperventilating. Thank goodness my pain level started to go down after that.
Next time this happens and the pain level stays high, I will go to the ER. They can give injections for Demerol which should help the pain. Thanks againView Thread
Hello peeps, I have Vulva Lichen Simplex Chronicus which is chronic burning pain of the vulva. My pain is that of nerve/skin pain. I called urgent care and they said the only pain injection they can give is Toradol. I am wondering if that would help nerve pain? My pain level is a 9+. I am suffering terribly. I don't want to go to Urgent Care if Toradol won't help. Please, if anyone has any information about this inject I am begging you to let me know.
No, I haven't talked to my Dr. yet. I have so many pain issues that my PS told me that she was only going to work on one problem at a time. lol. So I haven't mentioned that to her yet. But thanks for your reply. It could be related to my back pain.View Thread
For a while now I have been having pain at the hip joint of the leg and outer thigh pain. Sitting seems to aggravate it. When I get up to walk, I can hardly move my leg. When I try to walk it feels like my muscle, on my outer thigh, is pulling on the leg bone. It feels like I'm going to either pull the muscle off the thigh bone or snap the muscle. Thats the only way I can explain it. I'm sure others have had this same pain. If you have had this pain before, what on earth is the problem?
The red shows the area of pain BUT I don't have the pain on the lower part of the leg, under the knee.
Wandac, Thank you for the info. on Cymbalta. I just knew that there had to be another good nerve pill that I hadn't tried yet. Lyrica is horrible on brain function. I can't think, remember things, concentrate and sometimes doing simple tasks can feel major while on Lyrica.
One day Im watching tv. watching a comedy and LMAO, so I tell hubby that he just has to come in and watch this comedy with me. He tells me "You and me watched the entire movie yesterday, don't you remember?" LOL. I did not remember ANYTHING about watching that movie. Well at least I'm able to enjoy movies twice. View Thread
