Hello @sonnys and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thank you for joining the discussion and Connect. You said you have had 29 years of fighting pain. Are you using, or had you been using, Oxycodone and/or Oxycotin to deal with your pain?

Hello Amanda, thank you for your response. The first 4 or 5 years I used just about every pain pill there is. the Oxys and morphine always helped with pain but I always felt a little hi so I refused to use them for fear of becoming addicted. I have used Tylenol/codeine or aspirin/codeine for years. The Aspirin mix worked best but they stopped making it about 10 years ago. Five years ago I was put on Fentanyl patch, a change I regret. Since pain management has started I am now being treated by someone who has no idea what Parsonage Turner Syndrome is, he asked me how to spell it. Their goal seems to be taking all pain medication from me. The last two years have the been worst of the last 29 years not counting the first 5. A very long painful disease for me.
