Osteoarthritis + kidney disease: Suggestions for chronic pain meds?
I have osteoarthritis. I have had several joints replaced. I was diagnosed with MCD in 2019. My nephrologist thinks I should avoid all non-steroid anti inflammatory medications. Tylenol is not helping me and I have generalized chronic pain and fatigue. I had one visit with a pain management Dr who was only interested in injecting my lumbar disc. I couldn’t get him to understand that my pain involved multiple body areas, including my entire back. Needless to say we didn’t agree on a treatment plan. My PCP only suggested X-Strength Tylenol. Before the pandemic I exercised almost daily in a therapeutic pool, which was very helpful but with my suppressed immune system I avoid the gym. Can anyone suggest pain management treatment for osteoarthritis that does not involve NSAI?
