I have posted here before for recommendations and i guess this is more of a show of hands question. I take Norco 10/325 4 x and MS Contin 30mg 2x . Ever Since i had a Facet injection i have had serverly increased pain in my legs and back . My leg pain previously was almost never a problem .
Right now i have been awake for well over 24 hours laying in bed for 10 and doubling up on my meds. I cant break this pain cycle . I just have some "basic" injuries which dont seem "severe" 3 bulging discs and nerve damage @ L5S1.
I called and em waiting for a call back from my PM doc to see what to do , but im scared i may soon be seen as a drug seeker because in the past 4 months i have visted the ER and been admitted for pain management 3 times. Not under the radar , always telling my doc , just the meds dont 2 of which have been since my procedure that has seemed to increase my pain.
is it a common thing for chronic pain sufferers to visit ER's to get over that pain hump? My ER is really good and i never try and cover anything up and always share info and keep all doctors informed.
just i dont want to run the risk of getting flagged or anything like that . All times i have been admitted for at-least 2 days .
please share similar stories if available.
