    Herniated disc causing concern about leg

    I have a diagnose of 2 herniated discs in my lumbar spine, one pressing directly on the sciatic nerve. Lately, the pain going from the lower back to the heel has been severe, going up to the toes and making it hard to stand straight. The pain alternates with total numbness and difficulty in movement and sometimes tingling. Should i be seeing a doctor again?

    Perocets and dea

    Its funny perocets have been around to help people in pain . Just like the years that heroin and cocaine until our government and dea decided it's not good for people .granted heroin and cocaine is really messed up .the problem is our government really dont know squat about nothing. It's funny there was a picture of our president with Osama bin laden, not counting he was in our CIA. Anyway the reason I believe the dea is coming down hard on perocets is because its easier then trying to stop....

    vibration and numbness from right side back

    So for the past few days I've been feeling this weird vibration kind of feeling from the upper right side of my back, right next to my arm. After it vibrates it sends out this numbness tingling feeling to my right arm and down my side a little bit. It only happens sometimes. I think it happens when I move it but sometimes I'll just move it slightly and it happens. I've been trying to figure out what this is but I haven't been able to find anything. Anyone know what could cause this....

    Surface Knee Pain

    What can cause pain on the surface of the kneecap? It is sensitive only to touch or to kneel on, but no other problems. It is sensitive to the touch like a bruise and sends throbbing superficial pain when I kneel on it which continues for a minute after pressure is removed. Otherwise there is NO pain or stiffness. It is extremely localized and small area. There is no redness or black and blue. What could it be? Pinched nerve, hairline fracture?
  • 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....

    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.

    Herniated discs/chronic back pain

    When I was 19, I slipped down some slick stairs and landed badly on my lower back and right shoulder. I had severe back pain for weeks afterward when lying down but just thought it was probably a bad bruise, possibly a muscle strain/sprain. Fast forward to 6 months later I got checked out by a local clinic doctor because I was having weird numbness, shocking, and stabbing leg pain. They did one X-ray and prescribed a ton of various pain meds including an opioid and said to come back in 6 months.....

    Can My Pain Be Cured Or Simply Managed?

    Hello, My name is Asim Khan. I have been suffering from back pain from a long time and had also been under medications for three months, but nothing worked.

  • Living with RSD

    RSD is a pain syndrome where the pain is constant most of time! Pain Management is always part of the treatment and pain blocks. But, the last timeI had a pain block was in the year 1990. I actually got up and I should been completely anesthetic. Before that block a physician blocked from the neck down ( I was a nurse for this hospital ) one of the nurses that was helping with the block told the Dr. he was blocking me to high and he told her I am the Doctor and his block numbed me from my shoulders....
