Avatar f tn So, the state settled our annual reimbursement fight. Except the paper work has been sitting on someone's desk and we haven't got our reimbursement check. Our advocate is still trying to get them to sign off on earlier settlements made to other clients this year. NYC and Albany happily tax us - we propose a deal - they can have our taxes - minus his tuition.
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?

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.

3055553 tn?1346558533 Hi Codielou I am in the UK and unfortunately endo is very badly managed over here. It's an effort just to get a diagnosis so pain management is unheard of! I am also allergic to paracetamol and codine so the only pain killer I can take is Ibroprofen and I am currently over dosing on them.
Avatar m tn I have two diss located dics, stenoisis, arthritis and bone spurs, i am in EXTREME pain, I have been seeing a pain management doc for a year, this specific doc, i did not want, yet the office keeps giving him to me, he has NO compasion, thinks everyone is a drug addict...seeking another, ask him about a break through med, then wanted to take me off the med that works. a previous doc has me on soma to control the muscle spazms.
Avatar f tn Are you referring to head pain, neck pain, or pain somewhere else? For me, pre-op, nothing worked. I had headaches that would wake me up every couple of hours. Now that I'm post-op, I prop myself up on the couch with my Chiari Zipperhead pillow and that seems to help my pain meds work. The pillow is great (I had it pre-op, too) because it has filling you can add or take out.
Avatar f tn That can be very hard to tell the difference, but they could not really help me with the actual kidney pain. Being out of alignment can increase pain and even cause chronic pain. We have an inverter table on our porch that I use regularly to keep things in alignment. As well as having exercises that help too. I also found a Pelvic pain PT who has been excellent and helped a lot with my pelvic floor muscle issues.
