I am new to this group, but certainly not new to pain. I am a an RN, and have RA, and chronic pain. I have had surgery for cervical and lumbar radiculopathy, and lumbar stenosis. I lived on morphine, oxycontin, and somas for over ten years, they eased the pain a little but kept me sedated. I had a Medtronic intrathecal pain pump placement in 2012, and it was a miracle. Instant pain relief, I had been going in every month for a refill, but he finally double concentrated in on Tuesday, so now I go back every 3 1/2 months, which is a lot better for me.
Has anyone here had their medication double concentrated? I use fentanyl and clonidine, just since then I have a medicinal taste in my mouth.
