Hi, I am new here and I don't suffer from any problems. My Girlfriend does. For 8 years since she fell down a flight of stairs she has suffered Chronic Pain. Her pain while always present was managed by Morphine, though she always took just a little more then prescribed and would end up going a few days without until she could get her next prescription filled.
She takes Morphine 100mg and Tylenol 4 for breakthrough pain. She runs out of both a few days early. Eventually her "fill dates" stopped coinciding and when she only has one or the other, she takes even more of what she has. Generally when she has both she is much better. Not good, but much better.
That is until about a month ago. Her pain is worse then ever. Today she had injections by her new PM which did nothing. her morphine does nothing and her Tylenol does nothing. She went to the emergency room this week and was injected with dyloded, which did nothing and left with a small script for Tramadol, no help.
She has become very depressed. I don't know how to help her. She is angry and obviously in severe pain. I have tried to get her to join this forum but she is resistant and feels nobody can help her. I don't even know what I am asking except what can I do to motivate her to continue to find some relief.
Where do I start? What can she do? I fear for her safety and mental health.
