Sep 27, 2018 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

Try miralax and /or stool softners plus a correctol. I know it is a lot but with the pain killers you need them. I take the miralax mixed with coffee or tea in the morning and the stool softners and correctol at night.

Hi @mamacita, thank you for your post. I really appreciate you saying that I am a warrior. You know every single person who lives in pain is a warrior. The thing is other people who don't know what pain is (and I was in that group when I was healthy) have no idea how hard it is to live with this pain. They look down on me/us. It makes life harder than it is. I feel people judge me. Like one "friend" said to me, you wake up and everyone is tired. So you get up and you move on with your day, shake it off. But she has no clue what it is like to wake up and not be able to think or move because you didn't sleep well. I do take a lot of the supplements you mention and I have to say honestly I have not found any of them to be of much help. I only take them because they are recommended. Today I feel depressed. It is lonely being this way. You can't commit to much because you never know if you will be able to make the commitment. No one ever thinks their life is going to end up like this. Thanks for connecting with me. You seem like a really nice person.

Hi if you are underweight, why can't you take steroids? I have taken hydrocortisone and it helped me – gave me strength in my legs, where I have the worst pain. But I gained weight on it. Are you on any painkillers? I have been on ultram and hydrocodone for 20 years. I'm not sure what is wrong with me – I also have raynaud's syndrome which is bad circulation and I think it gives me pain in my legs and even my head. I was also on neurontin but gained weight on that drug, but I did find that it helped me now. When I was 40 and newly diagnosed neurontin didn't help me at all and I was on the max dose 3600 mg a day- but also gained weight. Now 20 years later, I found it did help but don't want the weight gain. Perhaps if you can get a mild painkiller it might help you = Sorry to hear of your situation.

May 20, 2018 · ALTERNATIVES FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT in Chronic Pain

Hi Gail, I was put on tramadol when things went south in my body 20 years ago. It was the first pain med the doc. gave me and it helped a lot -And back then they always said it was not a narcotic cause it is synthetic. Now I take hydrocodone and I have tramadol if I have break through pain. But the new docs I see won't prescribe it. And so many dr.s years ago felt it was safe and a great pain drug. The opiod epidemic is taking a toll on legitimate pain sufferers.

Apr 18, 2018 · Adrenal Saliva Cortisol High at Night and High in the Morning in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Hi Lisa, the follow up at 12 – midnight showed they are back in the normal range. The endo said the first AM reading was not important to review. (She said the AM reading is only important if your adrenals are low) So as of now, I guess things are ok. I am taking a few herbal supplements at night including magnolia bark, neuro-serine and a few others to help lower the cortisol and they seem to be helping me sleep better. In another few months I might pay the $130 for a 4 time reading and compare from a few months ago. Thank you for following up.

Hi I bought it cause I read that it helped many people – so please don't go by me. I seem to be drug resistant, meaning I have to take a ton of meds for them to work — so it may work well for you. Good luck and let me know how you feel, if it helps you at all. Perhaps I didn't buy from a good company. (you just have no idea when you are doing this cold ) – I did buy some gummies and they may have done something to lower my anxiety – so who knows?

Hi I bought Green Garden Gold 1000mg hemp extract and I take about 5-7 drops and unfortunately I have not seen any difference. I paid around $90 for this and I think that is quite expensive especially since I haven't seen any changes with it.
