    Pain Medication Question

    I've been suffering from chronic prostatitis for couple of years now. I've seen many doctors in the States but haven't had much success regarding the daily pain. When I was traveling abroad recently, I decided to see a urologist there to see if anything different could be done for me. The doctor gave me a 30-day prescription for 2 medications: acetaminophen & tramadol. I learned that acetaminophen is the chemical name for Tylenol, but in the country I was in, a much stronger version....

    Back pain, please help

    My partner has a bad back and has been in pain since last may.

He had an MRI which showed no bulging or slipped discs but has continued to be in a lot of pain. He had a few months off work while waiting for an MRI at their request because his....

    Arm pain - multiple causes

    In the last 12 months I've had neuritis, tendonitis in the same spot twice (tennis elbow), tendonitis in a second spot once (golfer's elbow) and osteo-arthritis is showing up on an x-ray all in my right arm. My doctor said that anything ending in -itis is inflammation. Could these all be connected somehow since they are all inflammation problems? Or am I just unlucky?
