Pain Meds Or Cannabis

Pain Meds Or Cannabis

Lumbar spondylitis with bulging discs is my condition, I'm prescribed norco 4x daily. My friend thinks I should just smoke cannabis for pain relief. It is not sufficient. But I cannot convince him. Therefore I'm a druggie in his eyes.😔

When Is It Time To Try Biologics?

When Is It Time To Try Biologics?

I was diagnosed with non-radiographic axSpa a few months ago. I’ve tried several NSAIDs, PT over the years, exercise, prednisone, injections etc., all of which have helped some, but I am still having pain
The rheumatologist wants me to try 4 weeks of prednisone again, along with Tramadol, to see if that will help. When I mentioned concerns about progression, he said that I shouldn’t worry about it - but that Enbrel might be an option if I would like to try it
I appreciate all the help I’ve… read more

Arthritis Vs. Ankylosing Spondylitis

Arthritis Vs. Ankylosing Spondylitis

My friend had been diagnosed with severe arthritis in his lower back. He goes to a pain clinic where he receives two strong prescriptions (Norco & Tramadol) for the pain but they only give him little. I feel like he needs something for inflammation but he can’t take NSAIDS because they make him bleed terribly. How does his doctor know it’s not AS instead of arthritis? If it is AS, has anyone tried acupuncture? If so, has it helped. He is very depressed and I’m worried about his mental… read more

Muscle Relaxers? Names Of Please?

Muscle Relaxers? Names Of Please?

I often see that people take these meds but don't know what the names of them are so I can ask the doctors if they would help me sleep without so much pain. If you take them please can you give me the name of the medication you take and if it helps. Thank you. X

I Have Been Calling More Often Over The Last Few Months. I Avoid The ER Because I Tend To Be Treated Like An Drug Addict. Any One Tx So?

I have a spinal fusion, spinal cord stimulator, and I am in pain management program but they do not have urgent appoints and will not adjust meds between appointments so they tell be to go to the ER but the ER staff treat me like an addict.

Any one else running into these problems of caught in the middle between pain management and ER?

Has A "professional" Eg, Dr. Surgeon, Specialist Ever Doubted Your Pain? Looked At Yu Like You Are Crazy Or A Drug Seeker?

I started symptoms when I was 16, chiropractors and more chiropractors until my early 30's and I quit. Diagnosed at 43 :'( Two spinal fusion surgeries, 70% curve in my l 4, l 5 and because I walked around with a fractured screw for over a year after my first surgery that caused 6 discs to rupture which were caged in my second surgery along with rods, bigger now :/ pins screws etc etc etc, instead of supporting my spine from the inside with screws which obviously didn't work, they went t the… read more

Taboo: Endgame Expectations

Taboo: Endgame Expectations

As this disease progresses (deteriorated you) and family & friends don't understand you and therefore dont help you or help you less and less, and doctors decrease or stop treating you due to political cost effectiveness mandates...
Where do you see yourself? How do you see yourself physically? How do you see yourself coping? Are these your final days? What kinds of choices will you make?
