If you have lost bowel and bladder control, that's something that screams go to the Emergency Room!

Have you told ANY doctors that you have lost control of your bowels and bladder. This could become permanent if left unattended for very long!!!

Here's some info on cauda equina that might help you understand why I am so concerned.

man oh man

Chronic,

A trip to the ER now is far less expensive than a life with permanent paralysis and damage. Do you want to wind up going around with a catheter and a poop bag your entire life?

Waiting until the 20th may work or may not work. It's like playing Russian Roulette with your lower body.

Listen, i have been so

Listen, i have been so mistreaded and shut down by so many doctors saying i am way to young for narcotics no matter what the pain. My one doc tells me its all in my head so he doesnt have to write me anything. I have chronic pain and discomfort all day long, i havent had thte chance to tell anyone i just feel so beatdown and giving up. I just cant take another rejection. Telling the people at the er is what gonna give me a script of 20 p5/325 my insurance runs out tomarrow.

loss of control

I TOTALLY agree with haglandc about having that checked out immediately! You don't want to mess around with something that could effect you for the re of your life (not that your pain doesn't effect you). You may be able to get some relief from your pain, but you don't want to leave the other problems and just hope that they don't last a lifetime. You are way too young to have to deal with this! I think that the embarrassment you may have for telling your symptoms to the doctor would probably be much less than the hell you might endure if you don't. Have it checked please! Take charge of your care.
also, if the insurance is up tomorrow, today is a great day to be checked out! Your insurance may extend if you have something that needs to be addressed right now (I'm not sure about this). Good luck!
