I have scoliosis, and I have chronic pain. Last month was my first appointment in a pain clinic. They gave me Neurotin. This does NOTHING. I mean, it helps the nerve part, but wtf, I need help with my joints popping, and the pain that shoots down my leg. I don't have another appointment till the tenth, and my reg doc is later than that. I need tips, ideas to combat it. I've tried ben gay, a heating pad, I have a massager. All sorts of different things I can think of, hamstring stretches, but idk if those will help where it hurts. I want to find ones that help tho....if anyone has any useful tips on sites and stuff. Its like its right above my hip a little maybe a inch on my left side and it throbs when I'm stationary, and burns and shoots when I'm moving. I have problems in my neck too, but not as bad since I started taking the med. the med was suppost to help the lower back more tho I thought lol. Anyone ever been on that before or know what I'm talking about that can offer help? I'm tempted to go into the er, but I'm scared of needles and getting more shots. I'm 29, and I've had this disability since I was born, and was told it'll progress worse by the time I'm 30, boy they weren't kidding!
