Hi my name is sue and i have found that finding out everything i can about my deseases and conditions helps to find treatments. I also found theres no one thing that will work. I have Degenerative disc disease with many damaged disc’s. Along with with that i have different injuries from over the years and my other diagnosis. Its a degenerative desease so it started young and slowly i had to adjust to losing different parts of my life of activity. So i understand what alot of you are going through. I go to a pain clinic and i like it there and my Dr. But I’ve changed treatments many times over the years. I still have pain crises even with the meds I’m on and epidurals I have.

May 25, 2016 · Epidural Injections in Chronic Pain

Hi I had a epidural about 3 weeks ago. My pain Dr. Is a anistiesologist. He
does the procedure in the hospital. I’ve done this several times with two
different Drs because I moved. He numbs the area in my case its cervical
mostly. So when he does it I usually don’t feel anything. One time out of
all the many times, I have done this since 2011, it hurt but not bad, not
compared the pain I’ve been through. Every Dr is different. Mine is young
but not too young. He’s personable and easy to talk to. I like and trust
him. So good luck I hope it works for you. Its not the only thing I do. I’m
on fentynle patches Tylenol 4 and a migraine medicine a few others. All
together I’m not in horrible pain all the time. I’m good right now.

I don’t think it was your genes.. I think it was 8 surgeries. Why so many
any do they want you to have another one?

Has anyone said this to you. I think everyone’s pain is different. There’s
different kinds of pain too. I don’t understand why people say such things.
I get a type of panicy response when someone thinks I’m find and disregards
my pain and expects me to do something. This does happen anymore but I
still remember how that felt. You sound like you are strong and handled the
situation when a person was not understanding of your pain.

I have gotten myself involved in a few organizations through Facebook and I
like to just use twitter because I read a lot and its fun. The things I’m
doing are for the endangered animals and some for the environment. I do
writing and petition signing and sharing on Facebook. Animal abuse is
something I’ve always worked against but with Facebook there are horrible
things on there. I like political science so I’m always talking and
studying that. The other new thing I’m doing is I live on St Regis River in
the Adirondacks. Iv got several apps from Cornell for bird identification,
I have a Hugh nest in my try and they have a nest watch and bird feeder
watch and mostly I do it from bed or my kitchen window or front French
doors. There are bald eagles I see all the time and blue heron. I’m writing
without my glasses I hope its not to bad. I am on a new drug that’s helping
me its for migraine and I had a epidural 2 weeks ago so I’m OK. Traveling
is hard for me still . I’m trying to wright this with my cat crossing me
one way then the next .well that’s it. I’m doing good. Oh I forgot I’m
doing meditation apps for pain or to relax and for sleep and I think they
are really helping me. Thanks for listening

Yes that sounds bad all thoughts surgeries. I think because I have a
degenerative disease surgery has never been a option for me.
So what do you do for your pain? Do you see a specifically a pain Dr.? I
do , and his NP specializes in pain also.
I think the important think is you have pain relief. You have the right to
live without debilitating pain. You should have pain relief. Why did they
give you all those surgeries? Are you taking pain medication? There is
nothing wrong with taking the right pain medication for your pain. No
matter what the medication. Under a pain Drs care you will be fine they
won’t let anything bad happen.
So how is your pain?

And the ingredient in brownies is pot which is illegal but I don’t know
what state your in. Your pain Dr is in charge of that.
