His primary care doctor is actually very pro-medical card, he’s been considering a topical oil. Have you had a good experience @tonyc55 ?

Thank you for the reply and point of view. Good to hear from someone whose gone through this for perspective like you said. They scheduled a procedure to inject dye into his veins to monitor the function of his kidneys. His primary care doctor believes that this is a last result considering X-rays came back clear. He has been to a specialist recently as well, for kidney stones. This may all be related after all. Its just hard to watch him go through this without an answer yet, it has been a very trying set of events. All I want is for him to get an answer to stop his mind from wondering.

The man in my life has been going through doctors and specialists for over 5 months now concerning lower back pain. He has gone through MRI’s , X-rays, CT scans and small procedures to pin point the issue, not to mention the pain killers (which doctors give as a quick/temporary fix). We’ve been sent to chiropractors, physical therapy and massage therapists. They have canceled out herniated disks, si-joints and other possibilities. No answers have been given and I can see the change in his eyes, as if he’s been defeated. I’ve battled depression myself, but have never been on the other side of it. I am unsure of what I can do to help at this point, I am commited to him, but out of ideas. I’ve mentioned talking to someone outside our relationship, a professional…some sort of therapist but that was a sensitive subject. How does one handle chronic pain in a relationship?
