    Lingering Imobilizing Back Pain

    I’m a 37 year old male that has always been physically active, athletic, and healthy. About 18 months ago I had a lung spontaneously collapse and had surgery to fix it. Not too long afterwards I have had really bad back issues or what I think are back issues. Starting from the middle of my back down to the waist my back is in sever pain. It’s a really sore pain. It hurts like hell to sneeze, rotate, bend over, stand up, etc... it is greatly affecting my quality of life. I don’t have insurance and....

    My left calf muscle/lower left leg grew bigger than my right calf muscle/lower right leg when I hit puberty in high school at 15 years old. The calf muscle that is bigger has spider veins and deeper dark blue veins in it. It also has stretch marks from growing bigger than it should have. I would like to find out if this has contributed to my bulging disc issue/pain or vice versa. Could it have been created on it's own with no explanation. Could it be a congenital birth defect? Would this be something....

    Unexplained Shoulder Pain

    For over a month I have been suffering from shoulder pain that radiates into my arm and hand on my left side. My hand feels numb and it hurts to use my arm. I went to the doctor about a week after the pain started. She thought I had strained my shoulder and organised some physio for me and some pain relief. My doctor said she could give me some time off work but I felt I was still able to work as I am right-handed and I can hold my left arm in front of me. She advised against the use of a sling as....

    Chronic Pain or Fibromyalgia

    Hi-I just wanted to respond and say that although I haven’t been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I have dealt with chronic pain in my back and have been on all the major pain meds. there are out there. I finally went into rehab and was taken off of all of them and put on Suboxone. It does help but I don’t think the chronic pain will ever go away. What I hate is the criticism that I have gotten from my family members. They think I have been faking it (the pain) and I feel infuriated at their criticism....

    PM Doctor

    I have been on PAIN meds for about 10 years. Until recently I didn't have a problem getting them. Then the law changed and my PM doctor retired. She recommended a Dr and that's where the problems started. The doctor said he was cutting my meds and I had to get epidurals in place of some of the meds. I said I had no problem as long as my PAIN stayed under control. Long story short, my pain was not under control and my BLOOD PRESSURE skyrocketed to Around 211/103. I ended up in the emergency....

    Pain pump failure

    Hi. So I had a pain pump put in a few months ago by a physician who IS NOT A BOARD CERTIFIED SURGEON but simply has "surgical privileges". He did a *** job and has compromised my spine as it continuously leaks cerebrospinal fluid (high risk for infection). I have horrific pain as a result. Am having a difficult time finding a pain management doctor who can deal with the pump and possibly take it out. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Breathing difficulties

    I have extreme trouble taking deep breaths 24/7. I'm in constant discomfort, but when I went to the ER, all of my tests came back perfect! I'm desperate for relief now, so I'm thinking that this may be caused by me sitting like a shrimp always. But I'm so used to it, that sitting up straight is uncomfortable. Is there a way I could train myself into a better posture? (Also if anyone has any information on why this might be happening to me please share, I'm only 15 so I'm very....
