National Pain Report...a Must Read For Everyone Fighting Back For Medication!!!!!

I happened upon a survey/Questioner from the national pain report. They are fighting back amongst the effects the opioid crisis is having, tying our doctors hands in properly treating us with the medications we need. They collected 1700 questioners along with each patients stories. A few weeks ago their findings and recommendations were brought before the F D A. We are fighting back!!!!! The findings and recommendations can be found in part one and part two of the report. They do have a… read more

Is Anyone Else Being Forced To Get Off Their Pain Medications?

Is Anyone Else Being Forced To Get Off Their Pain Medications?

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

Is Anyone With Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Willing To Talk With Me?

Is Anyone With Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Willing To Talk With Me?

I have suspected EDS and am awaiting official diagnosis, but I am coming to find that I feel extremely alone in this as even my partners don't quite understand what I am dealing with. This has been a wonderful community of caring, understanding people, but I would very much like to connect with people who have been diagnosed with or suspect they may have EDS and perhaps learn more about living with it as even regular chronic pain tricks don't always help.

Have You In Any Way Been Impacted By The New CDC Guidelines That Pain Managers Are Using To Require Reductions In Opioids?

I am collecting information in an attempt to contact those that are making our laws about opioid addiction. I have already contacted some law makers. When the new proposals are announce, I want to be very ready to get active in trying to be sure that those of us in chronic pain are not ignored in the process. Please be very specific if you feel that you have already been affected by new state laws or the national CDC Guidelines for pain managers and their use of opioid. Thanking you all in… read more

My grandma drank warm milk and honey when she couldn’t sleep. I do it and it’s helped me. Also try melatonin. It’s all natural and no addiction.

Can Tramadol Increase The Burning You Get From Nerve Pain ?

Can Tramadol Increase The Burning You Get From Nerve Pain ?

My pain level is ok at the moment but the burning in my foot is so intense, specially if I try to sit with my foot up, does anyone else have this. It has never been this bad, could Tramadol make it worse, as I have had to take it twice today for the pain. I have only been on Tramadol for a couple days so really would like to hear from anyone that is also on it. Thanks in advance

I'd be interested in any holistic meds that work too.
