Has Anyone Had A Pain Pump & A Scs?

Has Anyone Had A Pain Pump & A Scs?

Please understand that my body is the exception not the rule. I suffer from crps in my back, left lower leg (just below knee), & in my left foot. I have had 7 surgeries on my leg/foot already.

Has Anybody Had To Deal With Chronic Debilitating Plantar Fasciitis With Heel Spurs?

Any help and recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I have suffered from plantar fasciitis for several years. It has been too painful to walk in recent months. Wear orthotics daily, plus foot splints nightly and during the day. Finally resorting to cortisone shots in my heels. Just not sure what to expect. Please help

Alone Or Not? Potential Lockdown

Alone Or Not? Potential Lockdown

I barely fully recovered from the flu after about two weeks. Of course I got secondary infections because that's how it goes, right? Now, with the possibility of a national lockdown, I am torn between being alone and hoping I don't need help and flares don't happen, or going to my new boyfriend's home just in case.

Thoughts?

How Do You Handle Your Pain Without Any Pain Meds?

How Do You Handle Your Pain Without Any Pain Meds?

Back in January my pain doctor said he plans on lowering my pain meds because he said I've reached my " limit".
( Ive been on pain meds since 2008).
My next appointment is on monday so ill find out IF & WHEN he will stop them all together.
Anyway, I was just wondering how everyone is dealing with the med cutbacks & if anyone has any helpful tips to manage the pain.
