Oct 27, 2016 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

Can you tell me how to contact the Pain Management Clinic in Rochester. I assume that this is in New York.

Does the Rochester Clinic know of a similar clinic in the Orlando area?

I am Butterfly37. I am suffering from advanced arthritis and fibromyalgia. Currently, the only medication I can take is hydrocodone 7.5/3.25. I read all the material about the opioid addiction crisis and I know when I take my prescription to the pharmacist, I sometimes get funny looks from the clerks. I cannot take any medication where the side effects is a negative effect on the kidney; therefore, I can take no anti-inflammatory medications and many of the new medications advertised on television. I never take more medication than is prescribed. I can only get a refill every 30 days. This medication dulls the pain; the pain never goes away. It is worse in my lower back and neck. I will have to have a total right knee replacement this winter. I am afraid of back surgery. What have been the experiences of others who have gone through back surgery?

Oct 19, 2016 · Climbing Stairs in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I did not write the original question; however, I currently have bone on bone in my right knee and am getting euflexa injections in both knees. This summer I have been in a 3 story house and have had to walk up and down steps a great deal. My knee pain has increased significantly. Although the condition in my left knee is not as severe as the right, the left knee has always had significantly more pain. After using the stairs all summer, the pain in the right knee is worse than the left. Was the exercise derived from doing stairs worth the effort?
