    New pain

    19 years. Scale 1-10. 10 critical pain go to ER pain. Years I spent at a 5-6 daily. Suddenly two years ago I found myself at 8-9 no one listened, no one. Until a new doctor in the same office says, "let's get a CT scan. As it turns out two more discs were blown to hell. When people saw the scan kept asking me how I was still walking. (Thank the heavens for Doctor Megan A Bhave)

    Is the VA treating me right?

    I've had back issues since the early 90's. In the early 2000's I started having issues with my hands. 2010 my legs started giving me issues. I previously had private medical insurance but in 2010 I had to go to the VA for the 1st time. After 2 years I changed to another facility. Early 2016 I was having serious issues with pain in my left leg and groin and mobility was becoming limited. Early 2017 I had 'decompression' surgery of L1-3 and was told L4-5 had become 'calcified'....

    Sprained Ankle

    Back in September, I was walking on uneven ground and tripped. My left ankle twisted all the way backwards before I landed on it, making matters worse. It was excruciatingly painful and I spent about the next ten minutes flat on the ground before the pain just flat out disappeared. At first I thought that I'd just misinterpreted how bad I'd actually hurt it, so I got up and continued on my walk, which was a bad idea because after about thirty minutes, the pain kept slowly creeping back up....

    Hair Follicle Test vs. Urine Test - Hydromorphone Metabolites

    Hi. I am a chronic pain/Fibro patient taking MS Contin and Oxycodone under a pain management contract. I have been a patient of my current doctor for 15 years and have submitted to several drug tests during that time. I have never seen the results of those tests but this time around, for whatever reason, the results were posted to the patient website. I see that I have a confirmed positive not only for Oxycodone and Morphine, as I should, but also for Hydromorphone (which I have looked up and see....

    Sciatica?

    I'm going to see a specialist tomorrow to get a diagnosis, but I think sciatica is what I have. I've tried back exercizes, prednisone, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naprocin, lyrica, gabapenton. I hope there's something to relieve the pain, because it's getting harder and harder to make it through the work day. The only thing that helps now is to lie flat. I come home & go straight to bed. I can't take walks in the woods or even stand up in the kitchen & cook, let alone clean....

    Walgreen Shorting Prescriptions

    Wondering if anyone else is having this problem. Walgreens has shorted my wife's & I's pain medication for the last 3 months, 10 to 15 pills. Walgreens denys this even with the pills counted in front of the pharmacist!! Came to find out from one of my nurses that the same thing is happening to her husband at a different location. People in my support are also having this issue and not only with pain medication but with their BP medication as well.
