A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Did anyone else have to sign a contract with their Dr.? I had to sign a promise that I would not accept any controlled substance from any other Dr. Or his service will be terminated.

When I was taken to the ER with a fractured clavicle I had no idea what they were giving me in the IV. I FOUND OUT LATER.

I found out from my family Dr. That CBD drops will affect your urine test and will show up. BE FOREWARNED.

Contracts are malarkey. We are treated worse than injured animals and pets.

Spinal Steroid Injections
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been assessed at the pain clinic as a candidate for spinal steroid injections every six months. I have severe spinal stenosis on several levels in my lumbar spine.

Has anyone had these injections, and if yes, what are some of the side affects and also what are the positives?....I'm seeking a balanced picture.

Any information will be extremely appreciated!

Has Any One Else Had Their Pain Meds Cut Because Of The Phoney CDC Report On Dosages 90 Mmg Morphine Equalivent ?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

My doctor quoted some CDC report that was intended as a guideline for general practitioners that said no chronic pain patient should be prescribed more then 90mmg of morphine equalivent for chronic pain patients irregardless of pain levels or time on opioids. The DEA jumped all over this reccomdation and is using it to force pain doctors to drasticly cut medications, leaving millions of us in dire pain without help or hope.

Sorry! I mean 50 states!😂

Does Anyone Else Suffer Weight Issues Due To Medication?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, I have been on Lyrica for about 6 months and have put on about 12 kgs. The problem is it is mostly around my middle section and added to the chronic pain it is getting me down. Has anyone else experienced weight gain while on Lyrica and how do you combat it. Really need to be able to lose some of this weight as the extra kgs are making my back pain worse.

A MyChronicPainTeam Member

Thanks for response

Do You Feel Like You Are Just In The Way?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone feel like all you do is get in the way and slow everyone else down? As though everyone wants to get somewhere yesterday and you can't do so until tomorrow and so they are all ready and waiting at the door and you sometimes just end up passing on the trip, or activity, because you are still trying to get on your shoes and coat, so to speak.

A MyChronicPainTeam Member

Yep. I’m of no use to anyone so out of sight, out of mind. They forget that we gave our whole lives to them.

Is Anyone Else Being Forced To Get Off Their Pain Medications?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been having a rough weekend with my pain and my depression/anxiety and more so, far of what is to come, after recently finding out I’m being forced off of my pain medication. My health insurance is stating that they are tapering me down due to the obvious opioid crisis going on in the world which I completely understand, but to leave me with so many questions, no choice in this decision, no non-opioid medications or alternative treatment options being considered or offered, no plan if… read more

A MyChronicPainTeam Member

To be honest and frank. No I dont feel that. What Ive experienced is a support system offering alternatives to drugs which in my case had some horrible side effects and didn’t really work. So no… read more

What Are Your Hints To Get The Best Rest?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

We all rest. I am almost professional at it. I awake some times feeling well rested, other times I am immediately ready to go back to sleep again.

A MyChronicPainTeam Member

My primary care doctor suggested Magnesium Glycinate. I get it on Amazon and it works. It is nonprescription.

How Do You Cope When You Feel Physically And Mentally Exhausted?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I struggle daily with various pains but usually push through and continue to work my 8hour days at work.

Do You Ever Feel You Are Losing Control
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone else feel that they are getting worse pain increasing feeling a bit anxious & paranoid.
The control you usually have to manage what is wrong is just slipping away. Doctor does not seem to understand "Well it's a degenerative condition" & you worry that the day will come when you are out of options
I think winter is probably worse for this. Folk say you will be fine!! NO you know what I wont be "fine" I will never be fine again. What do others do when they hit rock bottom?

A MyChronicPainTeam Member

The one good thing about hitting rock bottom is that there is only 1 direction to go, and no, I'm not talking about left or right but up up up. If you feel your doctor isn't giving you what you need… read more
