#:S ... I Have crohn's disease
and was experiancing sacral pain that was getting worse over time. my g.i. doc said its from my arthritis, which i was never told to much about. in 2007 i was in the icu my bp was low and my pulse at best 32 bpm and in immense pain. this is when they tried everything from lortab, oxycodone, percocet to fentanyl. i recently begged them to diagnose my back it began hurting so much and i had weaned down to just fentanyl 25mcg every 72 hours. they send me for xrays and and add lortab to the mix. i come back they cant even find the results i tell them what the the doc told me- ddd. my doctor tells me he wants to send me pain man., so i go get her opinons but she says nothing. tells me i should go to pilates?! and to fup with my primary. so i do and they dont get any recs from her for a month, basically they want her to prescribe. turns out once i do get ahold of her, shes not a pain mang like they thought. so i keep calling my primary cause at this point im out of my meds. they call back eventually tell me theyre going to call in some muscle relaxers, which they forget to do. so i get an appointment this guy didnt even realize taking me off pain meds which ive been on for 18 months. so i come home and hes put me on methadone and may switch to suboxzone sp?- i dont know what to think. im tired all day and still the pain is there. i havent been able to return to work yet where i just asked for and got a raise. has anyone else been in my situation?
I'm currently on methadone, topomax, baclofen, clonopin 6mp, sulfasalazine and prednisone.
