Look forward to all the information you have on chronic pain I suffer from Arthritis & Fibromyalgia , I have done for about 18yrs
Have fibromyalgia and arthritis and a sciatic nerve pinch.
I love the statement about it being a partnership. Looking forward to reading your info.
I have recently moved to North Dakota. I was previously treated by a pain MD in Illinois who had no problem treating my back pain. I've had two spinal fusion a and the last one left me in chronic pain. Now, since my move to North Dakota, not one single pain doctor will prescribe opiates to me unless my imaging shows evidence that I have an injury. Does anyone have any tips, or advice, please help me.
I would order my meds from Canada. The DEA crackdown on legitimate pain doctors is directly responsible for the heroin epidemic sweeping our country and the staggering amount of deaths. People like myself are in so much pain that I would rather be euthanized than live like this. If nobody will write your meds you can also go to a methadone clinic. Methadone works best for my pain, but it takes a few weeks to get up to the dosage amount you need.
Jeffery schwab..I could not agree with you more!!! If these Dr's would just STOP prescribing fentanyl that would stop all these overdoes deaths it is ppl like that who is hurting ppl like us!! It makes me so damn mad and upset. I have never tried the methodone, but that will be my next step I will NOT SUFFER DUE TO ALL THEIR IGNORANCE!!!
The cold is not good for bones that have like arthritis....also try to get intouch with the old Dr to forward your records maybe these Dr's are missing something. Good luck!
Ask your previous doctor to write a referral letter for you
Illinois has no problem giving anything really needed. Respect
Mark I am in the same boat as you. It's been just over a year now that I head a failed fusion surgery. Now the Drs are pretty much telling me I'm on my own regarding my pain.As we all know we build up a tolerance to the pain meds but here in CO they won't give you anything higher then a 10mg pill.You get to take 1 every 6 hours. I would love to hear any recommendations that other people may have. Thank you.

Do I need permission to use Numeric Pain Scale?
No, you do not need permission to use a numeric pain scale your doctor should be able to supply you with a scale that they like to use.
I have chronic pancreatitis and no help please I live in California please help
Its good to see that others experience what I do and have the same problem conveying messages to their GEDs. Everyday especially in the morning my pain level is through the roof and towards the night I am on opiods in which I want off and want to try something else. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to know although I think Ive tried most natural products and pills that just seem to be potions for disasters. Im trying now to accept that I cant do what I could do before my accident but its hard. I was listening to Youtube and found this site. Thank you for sharing your emotions and struggles with the world .
