OK So I am 35 and over the last 8 years I have been diagnosed with the following.....

5 herniated disks
2 bulging disks
3 ruptured disks
Cervical Spine Disease
Paget's Disease
Spinal Stinosis
Sciatica both legs
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Osteo Arthritis
Fibromyalgia
Degenerative Disc Disease
And many more spine related issues....

Lets put it this way... Social Security normally denies your claim 3 times before you go in front of a judge... my MRI reports had so much proof they couldn't deny me whatsoever.....

My point is in the last year I have had 4 major spine surgeries.. I have also been told that there is nothing anyone can do for me,that basically I am narcotic dependent for the remainder of my life...This statement has come from several Neurologist that are very prominent,and highly respected in their field.I have been told that a morphine pump should be placed in me,but as I said, I am only 35 and I believe this should be the last draw kind of medication.I have been on Lortab 5/500 for the first 5.5 years and now for the last 2 years lortab 10/500.Its not doing anything for me any longer...My doctor,whom has been my doctor for 35 years, well ...I do not think he goes above or beyond the lortab 10/500. HE is not like other doctors that are known here to just give anything out. He must have solid proof that this is the only thing for anyone. In the past when I have gone to a pain clinic they want to put a morphine pump in me...gave me some kind of muscle relaxer that knocked me out for 3 days straight... so I am scared they will try to give me something like Oxycontin or something close to it or hell maybe worse..can anyone give me any advice on what I should ask for,and what other types of Pain medications are out there for people who REALLY ARE IN CHRONIC PAIN.? I just want to know what it is like to be without any pain one damned day or hell even for an hour! I have a 9 year old and I cant play with her like she deserves.. Please if you could give me some advice... These are the ONLY pain medications I have ever taken and now they aren't workin on me...I cannot say I am not addicted I am sure I am after being placed on Lortab for 8.5 years,however I am more dependent on it than anything. And when you have TRUE CHRONIC PAIN, YOU DON'T WANT THE HIGH, you want OUT OF PAIN! I DO PHYSICAL THERAPY 3 times a week and water aerobics as well... Thank you...

have you tried oxycodone instead of hydrocodone? maybe something like percocet or tylox could help you if you are scared of the oxy's, which i don't blame you. those things will have their claws in you within weeks.
Somethings Fishy

If you have documentation that you have all those problems and are only taking hydrocodone, I feel for you. I believe you failed to tell us the whole truth. If you are legit, I hope you get the treatment you need. But, if you think anyone is going to give you the name of a good Dr. on Topix where every addict in Maysville can see it and run to them, I wish you luck! You can blame all the addicts and dealers running to FL and getting pain pills to bring back here and sell for all the reluctant Dr's who won't write anything more than a schedule 3.(if your lucky) Something has got to be done, these people are making it damn near impossible for the true chronic pain patient to receive proper care.

I know plenty of people in kentucky who werent given anything stronger for back surgery than Lortabs, so sorry to say theres nothing fishy about the original poster. Ive actually met a woman only prescribed tylenol 3s because docs are so scared to give out stronger meds. Sorry to burst your bubble.

You are right about one thing though, addicts have made it impossible for actual suffering people to get pain relief.

Pain is a relative thing, and cant be measured by any instrument or machine... so a Dr can only go by what someone is telling them.

really hoping florida goes through with their drug tracking system like our pharmacies use

There are also non-narcotic meds which may help your nerve pain like: Lyrica, Neurontin, Topamax. Ask your doc. I take Percocet for spine related nerve pain and it helps but I'm still miserable most of the time. I also will never take Oxycontin or Methadone. Also, keep going to neurosurgeons. That's what I'm doing until I find one who can fix my problem and get me pain free without meds. Good luck and God bless!

head down to one of the pain clinics in florida once a month, and they'll give you whatever it is you need, give them your medical history, tell em your pain problems, and they'll give you exactly what yoou need, and a full month's supply of each medication. It does cost quite a bit to drive down there once a month, but well worth it compared to dealing with any of the doctors up here.

find another Doctor. Northern Ky have doctors who have procedures such as chemical found in tropical fish that have a numbing agent for months. There is alot more options now. You just have to go to Doctors that are trained in these procedures. Try Dr. Wall from the Cleveland Clinic, he has a office in Crestview Hills by St. Elizabeth off of Turkeyfoot road. Good Luck

what do you think oxycontin is?....it is oxycodone. my mother was presribed oxycontin and the bottle said ...oxycodone, the only difference is ....percocet has tylenol and oxycontin doesn't.

Did you get injected? I have horrible nerve pain and would do anything for relief. I am so tired of meds barely helping and making me feel horrible about myself because of the stigma all these pill abusers have caused. Plus I can barely move can't work and really want to again.

WHT KIND OF INJECTION DID YOU HAVE? I have had several and none of them have helped me. I hve degenertive disc disease, 2 slipped discs tht are crushing what the dr. said is a bundle of nerves thyast run down the spinal cord, the phacet joint is closing on my nerves , a touch of scoliosis, arthritis , and 1 more thing but i cn't think of the name . I have had several steroid injections , a phacet block , a rhizotomy , and they done a series of epidural injections but nothing has really helped. The epidural injections helped for about 3 weeks. If you had something other than what I have had I would like to know wht kind and maybe request my dr try that because as of now , they said the only other th9ing to do is surgery and I really don't want to .thanks for listening to my complaints , I would love to get off of the meds and be free of pain.....also , who is your dr?

i know oxycontin is oxycodone...duh. but perc's and tylox don't have the stigma attached and aren't nearly as strong. i'm sure they are still adictive but nearly as bad as OC's.

Wow, for someone whose life is so perfect (Leslie), it appears that maybe perfection isn't there at all. I see u found another forum besides "Sabrina and Ray arrested" forum to interject your endless rantings on! You have to be glued to your computer screen 24/7/365 to continue to stir up controversy. Please do yourself a favor and get a life.
have you heard of TENS

My mother has chronic back pain and her pain management doctor gave her a little machine thingy called TENS that sends electrical pulses to little pads that stick to the skin where the pain is. Here is the website: ww w.tensunits.com/
