I went to a new Pain clinic this past week trying to get some help for the pain in the lower back, hip, butt, upper leg and groin all on the left side.
After some very painful pulls, presses and twists in the exam the decision was that I do not need to take pain medication at all. The statement was "pain medications do not help muscle/tissue pain. I have seen a few doctors and had different diagnosis but never that and they could be right about the muscle being my problem. I am having a hard time with the part about the pain medication that I guess it is all in my head and some other Doctors too.
Hum so I guess I am taking this pain medication for nothing right?
Does anyone else on here take pain medication for muscle/tissue issues?
I want to do whatever which I have in the past to try to find some relief and have never been one to like taking pain medication but it is a huge tool when you have used and still do several of the other tools with no relief.
I hope this makes sense I don't want to get into the pain medication thing just about the use for that type of health issues.
Appreciate any input I can get.
Thanks so much
