    Norco dosage: What's better?

    I'm caregiver to an 87-year old patient with chronic pain from severe degenerative joint disease. She had previously been on Norco 7.5/325, and due to worsening symptoms, her dosage was changed to 10/325, with both prescriptions for 1 tablet 3 times daily. She reports better pain relief with the 10/325, but has been experiencing dizziness since switching to this dosage. I'm wondering if returning to 7.5mg, but with 4 tablets per day, would be better for her, as she would still get a total....

    CBD oil for pain management

    I'm asking for opinions about CBD oil for chronic pain. I have mid-back pain from sitting at my desk every day at work. It usually starts about 4 hours into my shift. I sit and occasionally get up and move a bit every 2 hours, but after lunch the pain gets intense. I have kyphosis in my mid-back and I think that increases my pain along with minimal movement during my work day. Would CBD oil help with my pain level? I have also been taking Kratom with some success that lasts for about 4 hours....

    VA cut my pain meds

    I'm a veteran and have been living with chronic pain for 16 years. 5 surgeries on the left shoulder, and so far 4 on the right. The last was March 6, 2019 with a total reverse shoulder replacement. And I am in agonizing pain all the time. So, I tried some marijuana, tested positive, and what I, no more pain meds. And they won't prescribe marijuana to any vet. Thank you. I had to get this off my chest.

  • Chronic Pain, No Diagnosis, Could It Be Slipping Rib Syndrome?

    16 months ago I was in a car accident that has left me with middle back pain ever since. I have gone through various treatments and seen a handful of doctors in which not one of them have successfully diagnosed or treated my injury and the pain to which it causes. For those who are interested I will break this post down by the accident, my symptoms, my treatment, testing performed, diagnoses and where I am today. The Accident: I was rear ended while stopped at a traffic light by a much larger SUV....

    17 year old Son with strange nighttime headaches

    Not sure if anyone reads these or not but I am kind of at the end of my rope with this. My son is 17 years old, very healthy fit and active. Lot of friends and social anxiety issues etc. 2 weeks ago today, he went to bed and next AM complained that he had really bad headaches overnight around 12:30-1am and kept him up for 3-4 hours. Didn't think much of it, sounded like the flu and it is flu season here in the North East. Stayed home from school. Also had sniffles, no fever, little weak in the....
