Hi I hav every diagnoses here under chronic pain. I hav suffered from back pain since I was 13 now 40. Mother of 2 grown girls. First sciatic dibiltating issues when 19. For first 17 years I did everything suggested...hot, cold compresses, ibuprofen, chiroprctors, massage therapy. Never been lazy just pushed thru awful pain and sciatic episodes. Had a couple mri's but to scared to find out results. When turned 32 I could no longer walk from excruciating pain in right back, hip and leg. Went to dr for help got norm work up...X-rays and Mir. X-rays revealed severe arthritis in hips and lumbar spine. Mir revealed 2 hern disks in lumbar and 2 bulging. Referred to neurosurgeon had first discectomy felt like a new person hadn't felt that good since was child. 12 days later couldn't walk on left leg pain was so unbearable was screaming like woman giving birth naturally. Found that the remaining disk from discectomy herniated completely. So back into surgery... He decided to really check my lumbar spine thoroughly and learned I had: severe degeneration, spondiolitis, stenosis and arthritis. So needed fusion for missing disk but needed 2 heal from 2nd surgery 1st so started norm recovery phys rehab and pain meds but had very slow recovery w awful pain never ending. 3months later had Mri and learned I had developed staph infect in disk space. So spent next 3 months on numerous pic lines w iv antibiotics b4 it finally healed. 4 months later finally had fusion at l5-s1. Developed another staph infection and had 4th surgery in 11 months 2 remove infection. Learned from specialists will always hav staph in spine due to ad hearing to metal. Soooo spent next 6 yrs on morphine and lyrica. Had my 5th back surgery 9 months ago on cervical spine for fusion due to herniated and bulging disks from degeneration and many other lovely diseases . I was released from neuro med scripts and pushed to pm dr that did a favor for my neuro for melds and chronic pain control due to new fed laws for narcotics last year. The favor was bcuz I went to 12 pm docs in bi state area and no one would touch me w 10 ft pole due liability of staph in spine. I cannot receive any pain pumps, epidurals or injections without long term antibiotics. Developed allergies to all plastics, tapes, latex, tegaderm, skin cleaners, etc. my pm switched me from morphine I was on for almost 7 yrs in same day to methadone, opana, and cymbalta 5 months ago and in that time lost control of pain and was off on pill count pm dropped me that day and spent last 3.5 was withdrawing and detoxing on my own. can't get any dr or specialists to acknowledge me. So for last3 wks made 50 calls internet help and cannot find rehab or pm dr accept me. Had 3 grand mall seizures in last week and half. Need Mri badly but been to 3 hospitals 4 times for grand mall seizures and can't get Mir though I know I hav herniated the bulging disks in lumbar and cervical and good chance had some cages come loose. Had eeG and brain is fine. Rehabs won't take me cuz hav Medicare w private insurance, my med conditions won't allow me 2 participate in programs and the staph infections lets just say NOONE WANTS TO TOUCH ME DUE TO SUCH LIABILITIES!! I cannot afford even close to what private rehabs cost. Lost my architecture career and was put on ss disability 5 yrs ago..... Help..
