I am just new to this site and was looking for answers since I cant seem to get them from a doctor !! No Kidding,right!! I guess I will start of by saying that I am an Addict, I have been taking Suboxone for a few years Thankfully.. I, over the years have always had chronic back pain due to over working/lifting.. as the MRI ,still today, says the same thing.L4&5 herniated disk, bulging disk and chronic sciatica in both legs..I havent learned to deal with the pains I have had to live them.. Being told I was non-operative and with "Theraphy etc exercise well you know how the story goes as far as treatment.. It just doesnt touch it.. Finding my own way of treating the pain I became an addict..Manyyy tears have come and gone , I have had relapses here and there due to severe pain.. In this I have been unable to work.. like I use to!! Well over a year ago that "silver platter" fell from the sky and I was given a job that I have learned to perform as each day goes by to be productive and an asset to the company.. I have an hour drive there and more coming home due to the rush hour.. At the job I would do a lot of work sitting down and then came to realize that I am even better at what all I do by standing and producing more .. I felt great and tthe company was even happier.. I began to feel pain coming on each days end in my hip joint.. right in that bone area.. Thinking I would just lean in a different way the next day etc etc etc.. wearing different shoes, no shoes, slippers.. always trying to find something different to take that edge of pain away.. Then it got worse as to where I wouldnt be able to get out of the car and take a step, to just lean on the right leg to get myself moving,stepping slowly a few feet till i could feel like I could walk normal.. The pain just would never go away.. People friends and family would tell me all the time to see a doctor, because of past experiences I would just try to take care of myself.. ice packs, heating pads, laying down etc etc and would not go and be seen. Then came the day, today that I finally just got in the car and drove the 2 miles up the road to the ER.. Seen right away too!! Had X-Ray taken and they told me what I already knew.. N0thing is Broke.. here is a number to call and a prescription for Vicodin.. What I think is that You have Bursa/ bursitis..So of course I went to the drug store to fill this prescription and the druggist would not fill it .. Because I am on the Sub.. I said nothing and hobbled away to my car !!
Thinking what does one do when they are in so much pain that I finally go to the ER for help. What does one take for relief.. Other than doing what I have already done in my past..and I do Not Want to do that.. So now I wait for Monday to come and call this number then go to work and try my best to do like I always do This is where I came onto this site when I typed in pain/sub !! I needed to tellmy story a little as I read what You all have shared and I thank You for the information and advices. Which I need to wonder if I should talk to my Sub dr. and get increased as it is being said that Sub has been for Pain Treatment.. I know something is wrong with my hip.. I have been putting this pain off since August of last year.. Enuff is Enuff.. Thank you for listening
