Does it bother you if your spouse or significant other shares the details of your pain & other symptoms with others?

My husband tells practically everyone he meets about my current (& past) medical issues. He gives details & then comes to me with what these other people think it could be, things that I should be doing, meds I should be taking, etc. He can't figure out why my symptoms don't exactly match someone else's.

Problems with opiates

Problems with opiates

I have RA and OA that affects all my joints and spine. My pain is not constant, but the flares are horrible. The only thing I can get for pain is NSAIDS, which don't work. What can I do? I had a problem with a pain doctor in the past, who had me on too much and I ended up in the hospital. Is it safe to take them again?

Masked symptoms

Masked symptoms

As some of you may know I’ve had to come of codeine and Tramadol and currently on an increasing dose of Gabapentin. In general am feeling Ok ish. But I’m left with really bad lumbar pain (new pain) I feel my GP is ignoring this and not carrying out appropriate tests. Had a Chiro assessment and he said he couldn’t/wouldn’t touch me and I needed a scan to find out what was going on. My GP decided to increase the Gaba by 100mgs . Got to go back for review on Monday. So my question is What should I… read more
