Chronic Pain in Indy

I have tried Boniva and it made me very sick. I had a brace when I was young - from about 11 years of age to 14. Most important part of my life and I was teased and made fun of because I had to wear a back brace for 23 hours a day. I'm not necessarily looking for pain medications. I take them but I am willing to try other options.  (Jan 14, 2013 | post #8)

Thank you! I am willing to try anything because living with chronic pain is miserable.  (Jan 14, 2013 | post #7)

Chronic Pain in Indy

Hi. My Pain Clinic Dr. retired this past summer and I am looking for a new Dr. to take over my care. Could be a Pain Dr. or PCP (Primary Care Physician). I work full-time. I feel as long as I can work I should as I do not want to take advantage of the disability system. I use a cane to get around and the chronic pain issues are: Oesteopenia in Hips 40 Degree Curvature of Spine Degenerative Disc Disease Bulges L-3, L-4 Anterolisthesis L5 on S1 In addition, I have migraines, a blood disorder and have had a full hysterectomy, so I am going through menopause and my symptoms are horrible - restless legs, night sweats, muscle spasms in my legs and back. I have had acupuncture, cupping therapy, physical therapy (I continue this at home), tens unit, and injections. Thank you for any suggestions you might have for me.  (Jan 11, 2013 | post #1)
