    Back Surgery

    I had a spinal fusion in February, 2016. I wish I had never had this done. I still have back pain not to mention the nerve pain in both legs. My surgeon has been no help in managing my pain!! I hope that in the event you are considering this surgery that you will not let any surgeon touch you!!

    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.

    Peptic ulcer in the stomach - This is a big evil and painful disease. It has two forms. There is an acute ulcer and another chronic ulcer. The fierce ulcer is small but deep, leaving the mucous membrane in the flesh level. These triangular shapes are deep, whose peak is on the outside of the muscle and on the base mucosa. Chronic ulcers are more elaborate. Pain is the main symptom of these ulcers. It has a special relationship with food. [url= pro slim/]keto pro slim....

    Lower back & Hip pain

    MRI shows L5 vertebrae out of line and pinching nerves. I just had my first Brachial Block in that area. Medicare requires it be done 2 times to insure right nerves are targeted for final Radiofrequency Neurolysis where the nerves are burned or interrupted. May last 6 months to 2 years depending on how fast nerves regenerate. Anyone have similar issues?

    Chronic Pain

    I have bee suffering with chronic pain in back for over 10 years. I have head neck surgery and two back surgeries. I cannot stand up straight and my knees are bent due to weakness.

    Tired of the pain.....

    Hi everyone. I used to post here back in 2003 when I first had my two back surgeries. I really enjoyed talking to other people who had some of the same issues. Sometimes they really lifted my spirits just when I needed it. I have failed back surgery syndrome and have been in pain management since the first surgery. Hope to talk to others soon.

    What is causing my chest, neck, and back pain?

    I've been struggling to find what is causing pain in these areas for the past 3 years. I've been to several doctors and appointments and they can't find what is causing it. My second to last doctor said that I had a slight scoliosis and that is what is causing the pain. He told me to do swimming and prescribed pain medication and muscle relaxers. The effects wore off after 2 weeks of using them. My current doctor says that my current antistreptolysin o levels are causing it. So he has....
  • Type of shirt fabric for a burn wound

    What type of shirt fabric should I prefer for a burn wound? The burn is on my upper arms. It is not that big of a burn; it's a bit red and has some swelling. However, it is very uncomfortable to wear clothes since the burn is on the outer part of the upper arm (hope that makes sense), and constantly rubs against my shirt. The burn area hurts a lot. It looks like it would take a week for the burn to heal, but till then, what should I be wearing to minimize further making the burn worse. EDIT ....
