    Sprained Ankle

    Two weeks ago I fell and badly sprained my ankle. An xray indicated that there might be a slight chip in the bone. Although I can walk on the foot with no pain, I continue to have an ache that runs up the leg through the groin and hip. Would muscle relaxers help alleviate this?

    How cope with chronic lower back pain.

    I've been suffering from lower back pain for over 20 years ago and I have gone through 5 plus surgeries, including a fusion, just over a year ago. I have been taking all sorts of meds and therapy for as long as I can remember. Nothing seems to work. I feel that this chronic conditions will have to be tolerated for the rest of my life. I'll be happy with any other sources available in dealing with my condition.

    How food reactions can cause your pain

    Hello, I work with inflammatory conditions and pain disorders on a daily basis, primarily through diet. What I've seen over the years is that all pain is either caused by or contributed to by inflammation in the body. And much of the inflammation we accumulate is from things we do on a daily basis, such at eating. All of my clients with pain issues, migraines, chronic headaches, etc have experienced relief by identifying the foods they react to which contribute to their inflammation. If you feel....

    Fibro?Ms? something else? in pain and need answers!

    Here's a little Journey of my health over the past couple months. I'm at my wits end! I don't know what to do, I'm only a 19 year old female. Any advice or comments, suggestions, inferences or hypotheses as to what could possibly be going on with me would greatly appreciated. (writing this with shaky hands), here's a little in sight of what's been going on/ when it started and the symptoms i've been experiencing. I've wrote down the dates from day 1 to present (which....

    Forgive my duplicate post. I'm trying to get the hang of this board. I was also accused of not taking meds due to false negative test. It was humiliating. Please try not to focus on legal action now. I was so obsessed with suing Kaiser that it made me sicker. I still want to put them out of business! If you can, let me know when you are over the withdrawal. Best wishes. :)

    I never thought anything like that would happen to me either but a reckless Kaiser Permanente "psychiatrist" tapered me off some meds too quickly and I began hallucinating. It was frightening and of course I was to blame, right? I ended up with more nasty symptoms in ICU at one of the best hospitals here in Atlanta and it was still awful. If you nip it in the bud - NOW- I'm sure you'll do much better than I did. If you can, keep me updated, o.k.? I care.
  • chronic pain patients and drug testing - false negative

    I am a chronic pain patient who suffers from fibromyalgia. I have been on controlled medication for 12 years. I take my medication faithfully (I can’t emphasize enough on the word faithfully) I take 2 medications for sleep; Ambien CR 12.5mg every night and Clonazepam 0.5mg x1 every night and 1 medication for pain Oxycodone 10/325mg x4. This has worked best for me for 12 years. I’m not 100% pain free maybe more like 80%. I wouldn’t be able to function if I didn’t take it. I follow all the rules of....

    Don't wait until you lose your sense of reason, like I did. Not trying to scare you but withdrawal can be serious. :).

    Chronic Pain

    I too am one of a million people suffering from chronic pain. There has been much in the media about the opiate crisis. Since I am under a pain management doctor's care and take opiates for chronic pain, I am very concerned. The media states how many people are dying each day from opiate overdoses, but I never hear about how many people, under a pain management doctor's care are dying from overdoses. I take my meds as prescribed and I take them for my pain, not to get high. I have been taking....
