Hi To All! I have severe and chronic pain as a result of degenerative disc disease. I've had a total of 4 surgeries including two where I was fitted for titanium rods in my back. I have recently found I have another badly herniated disc. I have been treated over the last couple years at a pain clinic here in the St. Paul area but I just found out I'll be getting yet another PA to take over my care.

Does anyone else seem to get diarrhea when neuropathy or pain levels are high. This happens to me several times a week.

Finally come up with fibromyalgia they haven't given me any pain meds except naproxen and amitripline and I have to waitress and I'm in a great deal of pain. Is there anything else you take that doesn't have to be prescribed to help you.
Also, I cannot lay flat. I have to sleep upright in a recliner. i don't even own a bed anymore it's been years since i've been able to lay flat. anybody else have this challenge? i met one other person here.
I just found out my straight medicaid will pay for 18 visits with no co pay then medicare picks up for ten dollar co-pay.

So very willing to get that scale lowered.
