Hi. Just joined today after surfing around looking for alternative methods to assist me with my severe chronic pain.
I was involved in many different explosion blasts while serving in Iraq and now am a 100% Disabled Vet with Traumatic Brain Injury, Numerous Cervical spine issues, PTSD, and other medical problems as well. VA does nothing but medicate so recently I have sought civilian treatment in way of Facet Injections and RF too. They are also starting me on acupuncture and of course massage helps as well.
I read a few posts on here regarding medications and wanted to say, if anyone has any questions on them - though not an expert or Dr I have probably taken EVERY form of narcotic out there from both VA and pain Dr's. I know what works and what doesn't, how it feels to detox, and how I LIVE with my pain - perhaps NOT how you should.
Would like to keep on this forum to see what others are doing though my case may be a bit different.
Thanks and its nice to be here! Do we say something like "Hi Im Bill and Im opiate dependent" or something?
