Nov 20, 2016 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

I have Fibromyalgia and depression along with 3 herniated discs in my back and stress fractures. I also have kidney disease and high blood pressure. Some days are very hard to even get out of bed. I know what suffering with severe pain is all about About 4 months ago I saw a Gerontologist and she prescribed Cymbalta , and Tramadol twice a day. The Cymbalta has helped some. I used to be on Tramadol 4 times a day and felt much better, but because it’s a narcotic she won’t prescribe any more than twice a day. I also take Tylenol and use an ice pack and heating pad. I am 82 years old and I can’t cry with the pain because the movement makes it worse. I hope you can find some way to feel better. It helps to talk with someone or read all the post on the board.

Jun 2, 2016 · Vestibular disorder in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I have to get up very slowly and keep my head straight when I get up. I also take Meclizine for the nausea. I have also worn a neck brace when I’m moving around and doing my work. The computer screen also gives me problems if I tip my head so the neck brace helps keep it in the right position. Have you been examined for a pinched nerve in your neck?

May 31, 2016 · Vestibular disorder in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

My diagnosis was Benign Paroximinal vestibular disorder one year ago. I went to therapy for 7 weeks with them doing the epley maneuver and one other maneuver where they put a mask on you which contains a camera. My eyes had to be open when they lay you back so they could see the movement of my eyes on a TV screen.. I also took Meclizine 12 mgs. It seemed to help for a while but never really went away. After each session they wanted me to sleep in a recliner at a 90 dg. angle. I haven’t seen a doctor yet and don’t know who to go to. I am 81 and was very active.

I have severe dizziness when moving my head and or body upon standing. This causes my balance to be off. I don’t know what’s causing this but have inner ear problems as well. Is there anyone who has a cure for this? I have done therapy and the epley method.

Thank you so much. I’m having some ultra sounds so will see what he says and I really will get a second opinion!! Thanks again. Glad you came through it okay.

I just saw an endocrinologist and I am elderly so he said I’m not a good candidate for surgery and there is nothing else they can do. There must be some alternative for me.
