Dec 29, 2019 · Can't get lyrica don't want withdrawal help in Chronic Pain

If your insurance cost for generic Lyrica is too high, you might want to try Good Rx or one of the other discount drug sites. I recently checked the price of Pregabalin which is the generic for Lyrica and the Good Rx price in my area was about $26 for 90 capsules and about $20 for 60 capsules of the 50 mg dose. I hope this helps you.

Good luck! I hope the trial is successful for you!

Dec 14, 2019 · Anyone used Spinal Cord Stimulation for pudendal nerve entrapment? in Chronic Pain

I have recently been reading about Stimwave and watching their videos of success stories. I like the idea of not having a battery implanted. I have been considering a spinal cord stimulator for over a year for my hand and arm pain, but based on what I’ve read I’m not convinced it will be successful. I know they do a trial, but I have read accounts where the trial works well, but the implant doesn’t. There are groups on Facebook where people can get information about spinal cord stimulators. They have been very helpful to me in making a decision. Unfortunately, I have not read about anyone using the Stimwave. It’s not as well known. Good luck to you.

Nov 9, 2019 · Low-Dose Naltrexone for Chronic Pain in Chronic Pain

NPR recently ran a segment on low-dose Naltrexone being used for chronic pain. Many doctors may not be aware of it or even prescribe it even though it has been a miracle drug for many people. I’ve attached a website where you can learn more about it. Perhaps a moderator can post this to other groups as well. I hope this drug will help some of you here!

@papawheelie Thanks for your response. I’m so sorry you have been through so many surgeries. You sound like you may be a good candidate for a spinal cord stimulator. I would like very much to hear how you make out.

After nearly a year I’m going to see the doctor who recommended a scs and will decide if I will go ahead with a trial. I don’t want to go ahead with the surgery if the doctor is not confident that it will help me. I’ll let you know if I do have a trial.

Hello, @johnbishop, thanks for your concern and information. I did try myofascial release therapy, but after 5 sessions the therapist didn’t think it would provide any relief or benefit for me. She suggested I try physical therapy. I appreciated her honesty because the therapy was quite expensive. In the past I have tried occupational therapy, acupuncture, and a chiropractic therapy called Active Release Techniques. Nothing really helped very much. For now, I think I will continue to do exercises at home.

Fortunately, I have seen some improvement in my hand and arm in recent months. I can do more things than before. It’s just the pain that won’t quit.

I hope you will find some relief for your back pain. That must be very difficult for you. Thanks for all the help, support, and encouraging words you provide to so many of us here. It’s good that you are so generous with your time.

Aug 30, 2019 · Feeling at my wits end with Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia in Chronic Pain

Hi, Jen, I’m so sorry for the pain you are experiencing. You have been so encouraging to me and to others so I wanted to reach out to you. With regards to the opioids you’re taking I wouldn’t worry about becoming addicted, especially if you have taken them before and successfully stopped. They do help some people with chronic pain, myself included. I hope your pain becomes better, and I hope your husband has success with his spinal cord stimulator if he has surgery for it. Sending you prayers and good thoughts. 🙏
