    Chronic joint pain NO SWELLING, All joints, Unresponsive to standard treatments

    Hi, I have been living with chronic joint pain all my life (at least as long as I can remember, I'm 25). The pain is in ALL my joints, from neck to toes (shoulder to fingers too) if it's a moving joint it hurts. I have ZERO swelling or inflammation. I also am hypermobile, so I essentially have excessive range of motion. I have tried nearly every type of pain relief otc to prescription. Most opioids of have no effect, some increase the pain. I have been on oral opioids and I.v. Opioid. They....

    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....

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this. I am 19 years old and have been experiencing pain in my joints for over 2 years now. It has mainly been in my left hip but has also been in my right hip, both shoulders, both knees, and occasionally my elbows. For a while the pain would come and go but now it seems to be more constant and painful. These areas of my body also tend to make clicking noises, feel like they lock, have sharp pains, or get stiff and then pop when I bend them....

    Help, what's wrong with me?

    I've been dealing with chronic pain for as long as I can remember but it got extremely worse after I took thyroid medication that would hopefully help my hyperthyroidism. I went off it after I noticed an arthritic response and ever since, my pain has been excruciating and developed into a chronic pain issue that is not only related to joints. I've been to a rheumatologist, I've been to a doctor at a pain clinic, I've done PT for 5+ years, ice, heat, over the counter pain relief, prescription....

    How to remove diagnoses from records

    I had been diagnosed with Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome in 2009. After working with my doctor for several years to control the pain, he put me on extended release morphine. After years of trying drugs, supplements, diet, physical therapy, and talking to psychiatric professionals, I felt this was the last resort, so I agreed to try it. It worked great. It took about a year to get the dosage right, but was a very high dose. I took 145mg/day for about 8 years. I’ve never used it recreationally and....
