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 f tn Hi! So sorry to hear of your pain. But I"d like to welcome you to the Pain Management forum. We're not doctors but we are all in pain management for a variety of reasons. We advise and support each other through our own experiences. In addition to the GI problems, you may have developed adhesions. There area nasty little buggers that bind your intestines and can in general make your life miserable. A laporascope could confirm this. They will not show up on traditional imaging.

Avatar f tn I would suggest discussing the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with your treating doctor. Referral to a pain management specialist may be considered if there is inadequate pain control with primary measures and/ or it is difficult to control the primary cause. Take care!

Avatar f tn My uro was prescribing vicodin 5/500 since march. I requested pain management and they gave me baclfwn and cymbalta, neither of which address the severe pain of a flare.

My pain is in the upper part of my neck radiating both down into my shoulder and into the area where my skull meets my neck creating a wicked head ache!

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.

Avatar m tn Pain management doctors are usually very strict. You say you were warned once. What was in the Tylenol bottle that you mistakenly took? Depending on what is in your medical record, it may be hard to find a new PM doctor. Do you have a primary care that will give you care until you find a new PM doctor? It also sounds like you need to have your two other "wrecks" medically evaluated as they are new events with new pain.
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 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?
