Mar 31, 2018 · ALTERNATIVES FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT in Chronic Pain

I would really like to hear more about the spinal cord stimulator. The pain I have is due to previously broken shoulder, multiple surgeries, and damage in my cervical and thoracic spine. I know the nerves are involved because my hands and part of my arms keep going to tingling/Pain/go to sleep. It gets better after an epidural and then after time comes back again. I have asked doctors about the stimulator, but I never really get a “sure we can do that” answer. I’m not sure if that’s because my issues come from more than one location, or if for some reason it wouldn’t be effective for me. Love to hear what anybody has to say about these. Thanks, Jennifer

Hi all,
I have definitely try a lot of non-medication treatments. I do think a hot soaking bath with epson salt’s helps, and ice packs help. Physical therapy/massage helps and some chiropractic helps (especially when either uses ultrasound). My TENs machine is one of my favorite things to use it at home. I also get it a lot of relief from the lidocaine patches. I have a prescription for them but, they are available over the counter there just much more expensive. I also have what they call Theracane. It’s a short plastic cane that has a hook on the end With round little balls. You can use it to get to your back muscles and use acupressure to release the spasms.

I don’t get a lot of help from medical marijuana ointment/pills, agree it’s very expensive. On the medical side of things, I would be miserable without Norco, Neurontin/Gabapentin, muscle relaxants, and every three months and epidural.

That’s about the end my bag of tricks. I hope it helps some.
Jennifer

Feb 22, 2018 · Trouble with orgasm in Men's Health

I was on gabapentin/neuronton a number of years ago for severe spinal/neck pain and headaches. I’m on it now for the same thing. It definitely works, but it has its drawbacks one of them being sometimes you can’t remember what you want to say. I know I have blocks in my thought process when I’m trying to talk. It’s funny, now it doesn’t seem as bad now, as it did the first time I tried it, don’t know why. I don’t think I have the other problem you’re talking about, but it does effect nerves and makes them less sensitive. so it makes sense.

It’s very frustrating for me that the wrong information is being given out here. Botox paralyzes a muscle and makes it unable to be used until the Botox wears off. Please instead of deleting my post look it up

I’m a woman, but I married. My husband has this issue and he needs testosterone an order for all to work together. He prefers shots but it comes and creams and other methods. Just a thought

It appears all I researched, reprinted and wrote are now gone. Not sure why, but it seems that I’m not able to help. Mima, I wish you good results to relieve your headaches and discomfort.

Many of the people from the website I posted had pain after heck/shoulder Botox, they also had floppy heads

Feb 12, 2018 · Right side daily headache and no diagnose in Brain & Nervous System

I had a close friend with what you are describing, pain on only right side. It ended up that she was holding the phone with her head and right shoulder, just a thought. I also get a lot of help from physical therapy when they work on the muscles and then ultra sound that area. Sorry the other things didn’t work. I also have had a lot of pain right after Botox sometimes, not sure why. Then it works well other times. I have had it done many times and talked to the dr about the neck being weak afterwards (twice), he said it was possible.

Here are some other people talking about neck pain after Botox in their neck/shoulders. It’s not for everyone.

This is from the Botox website, concerning medical use of Botox.

Botox is a neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
