Avatar f tn t tell you how to go about getting a good pain management doctor other than to say you just have to get a referral and keep looking until you find one that is willing to give you alot of different option on how to control your pain. A good pain management doctor will not just give you pain meds the first visit with no history or test, or give them to you just because you want them to treat your pain.

Avatar m tn Lifting arm more than about 35-45degrees has intense pain that gets worse as arm is raised further (shrugging shoulder in any direction also causes a lot of pain regardless of arm rotation), with sharp pain going down bicep (only time top of bicep hurts is when lifting arm, all other times its across the back to tip of that bone).
1062073 tn?1268197380 Right now I am totally lost on what t do next, I am in constant severe pain, 7-10 on a chart, my entire right side from my toes to my neck and down my right arm are in a constant state of pain, hard to explain it its a burning, stabbing schocking like pain, lately I have been expirencing loss of mobility in my right extremities, and loss of control with my right hand, (dropping things unintentally).
Avatar f tn If you have been and they offer no help then contact a Pain Management Dr. You may have to get a referral from a prior dr, but if you tell them the dr's have told you they can' do anything for you they may see you with no problem. Pain Management finds the problem and try to do everything they can to fix it or help to relieve it. It gives you options. They have physical therapy that actually does help, atleast it did in my case.
Avatar n tn A TENS unit may help relieve the pain temporarily.
Avatar m tn I have had pain behind my knee for almost a year now. I had a meniscal tear taken care of last June and I was told it would also take care of the ganglion cyst that had developed. 6 weeks after the surgery I was still having the pain and discomfort behind my knee. I experience increased tightness and pain with exercise....the more I use it the less I am able to do. Even walking causes discomfort. I am not able to pick up my foot and move it back as if trying to touch my butt with my foot.
Avatar n tn I am beginning arthritis due to age and believe this is the cause. So far there is nothing but pain management for it and I won't take another pill for anything. Hope you find better answers.
Avatar f tn Do everything Jerry said. He did give you great advice and I think if you do these things everything is going to be alright. Yes, they do put all prescriptions on one or two pages now. It's not like it used to be where you would get one for every single script. Your regular pharmacist was not the one who filled them. And why in the world do these DRs think any of us would ever sell our medications?!!!

Avatar f tn After reading about pain management during labor I have decided to not have any medication unless it is absolutely necessary. However, I am still back and forth about an epidural. What is everyone's opinions or experiences with it? Trying to weigh the pros and cons.
Avatar f tn I have an infertility doctor who I know is wonderful with fertility drugs and IVF, but the pain management has been poor. Vicodin helps a lot, however, I cannot find anyone to prescribe it for me on a regular basis because it is addictive. I take a half of Vicodin 2 times a day. I dont think thats a problem, and it gives me a better quality life. What is Ponstel?
Avatar f tn Today the pain is bringing me to tears and I was just hoping that I could get some ideas on other options of pain management? I need some help and the doctors around here have been pretty stumped on what I should do. Any suggestions would help!

Avatar m tn Does your hospital that you go to have a Cancer care centre with a Pain management team? Our hospital here in Canada has a Palliative care cancer centre with Pain management. It is for all people with cancer not just paliative patients.

539841 tn?1235394722 The subject? Pain management. I am not going to be melodramatic, just honest- I have nothing to gain to be anything other than this. I am dying. We all are, right? Well maybe mine is just coming a little faster than others. This is the thing. My son is young still at 11. I want to enjoy him and my wife as much as I can. To do this it requires pain killers of the HEAVY variety.
Avatar n tn t do much as far as alternative pain management options. I would research other options and avoid the pain management clinics (if you can).
