Welcome to the new Chronic Pain group.

Why not take a minute and introduce yourself.

Ahhh, I got ya. So sorry for all your pain. Yes, pain is pain, no matter where it comes from.

I wish you all the best in your journey of finding relief.

@lisash Ouch! How uncomfortable for you, and if it was me, I would be hesitant to do things in fear it will act up again, right? It sounds like maybe over time the injury has rubbed some nerves? Like @artscaping mentioned, perhaps a visit to urgent care would be in order to gain some relief. Being a caretaker is difficult enough, without having pain yourself. Have you tried any capsacin type heat producing creams/ointments, to give you some temporary ease?

Has Anyone Tried this?
Its Nervestra…I almost bought it, but thought I would run it through you guys since some of you have way more knowledge and insight than I do.
Thank you for any feed back.

@sharlene, Good evening and welcome to Connect. I am not medically trained and cannot diagnose or recommend treatment that I have not experienced first hand. Personally, I live with small fiber neuropathy (SFN) and some form of pain or discomforted every minute of every day. I have suffered and I have learned, discovered and practiced options for controlling the pain.

I am happy to share with you and introduce you to other patients and mentors who would be a good match for your inquiries.

Would you please take a few minutes to tell me what health condition you are experiencing. Thank you and may you be safe and protected. Chris

I haven't found anyone that wants to deal with my pain except for mentally and xercise. I'm contemplating moving to location where I can get medical marijuana or just be able to purchase it
legally without having to go through a doctor it seems that that's what they're pushing us to do good luck all I can do is pray for you too

Thanks, all of you. Jim, I will ask my doc about Imipram. I was given morphine once, it gave me a blinding headache and put me to sleep – no euphoria that's for sure. I have had codeine cough syrup and codeine tablets, I take 1/2 the recommended dosage and go right to sleep – no euphoria with that either. I can take 1/2 of a Tramadol during the day, it doesn't make me sleepy or any kind of high, just dulls the pain so I can get on with my life. Lori, I will also ask doc if I can try the lowest dose of digestible CBD oil possible. I had a terrible reaction to pot (in the 70's) and I don't know which ingredient in the pot caused it. I tried the cbd cream, did nothing. Lioness, I have been to the Edgar Cayce Center in Virginia Beach, I will look online for their cbd tea. Anything is worth trying – the condition is advancing so quickly in me that my prescriptions are constantly changing. It's wearing me out – it's a full time job just keeping track of all my medicines and when they are due. Humana Insurance just started requiring patients to make 4 trips to the pharmacy to pick up Tramadol – they will only pay for 7 tablets at a time. Peggy

Hi, Peggy. Humana is my supplemental prescription insurance, and I order almost exclusively from their mail order pharmacy – Humana Pharmacy. I no longer have to go to the doctor's office to pick up a paper prescription and go to the pharmacy and hand them the scrip. My doctors just order on their computers while I'm sitting there, and a 90 day supply is mailed. My controlled substance meds only come every 30 days, and I send the doctor a request for a refill online. It's a great improvement over the drama of making all the phone calls and trips to town and sit and wait at the doctor's office and the pharmacy.

Hi, @dmac5 I've seen CRPS mentioned from time to time but I really know nothing about it. What doctors is she seeing? How is a diagnosis of CRPS made? It sounds painful, and I surely feel for her and you. I have small fiber peripheral neuropathy with pain pretty much in my feet and ankles, and tingling and pins and needles up to me knees.

Finding treatment and medications can be an arduous task, to say the least. It has been for me. Has she found anything that gives her some relief?

There may be a discussion about CRPS here at Mayo Connect. I'll try to find out. Welcome to Connect. It's been a significant part of my support system for several years. I hope you find some answers soon.

@dmac5 I found a discussion by going to the home page and typing CRPS in the search box. It has been active for two years, so you might get some ideas by browsing through the posts.

Best of luck.

How did you sign up for the Humana policy you have? If you have an agent, they could walk you through it. If you want to you can go online to your current account and look up the prescription mail order pharmacy. If you need help, I can help you figure it out. Obviously I'm not employed by Humana. In fact I'm not employed by anyone.
