I have been diagnosed with failed surgery meaning that I am in more pain than before my acdf c5/6.
I went to a new PM who did trigger point injections yesterday. OMG! The pain is much worse than before in my shoulders & when I turn my neck.
He also wants to put me on methadone. He says that it is the best long term chronic pain med. I keep hearing horror stories about this med. I'm asking for any eperiences with this med. My Dr.'s do not want to give me oxys as for tolerance issues. I would think they wouldn't want to rx the methadone even more? I could be totally wrong.
They seem to think that I will be medicated for years to come.
Looking for experiences with trigger point injections, does it get better? & Methadone users experience.
