So glad I found this site. I felt as though literally I was all alone in my thoracic pain.
I am working with two pain specialists and feel as though I am at the end of my rope. I have had several ESI and also just had a rhizotomy. I have two discs herniated in my thoracic and two in my cervical spine from an auto accident. I have had all of the tests and some more than once (MRI).
I have muscle pain, horrific nerve pain and also have permanent nerve damage. I feel as though I am on enough meds to knock me out, but it doesn't even knock out my pain.
I'm on Avinza, Zanaflex, Magnacet, Lyrica and Daypro. Why do I still have so much pain? Any suggestions on what I can do? PT didn't work either.
I'm lost. I'm 28 and have been dealing with this since Dec of 07. There are days I'm not sure I can make it.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. As my title suggests I just take one breath at a time bc I'm not sure what the next will bring me. :''(
