Hi! I am new, but have an imperative question that I would love as much response/suggestions as ya'll can give. I will briefly say that I was in a car accident @15
that caused back problems. I was in a car accident @27
, that almost cost my life. What it left me with was 2 broken femurs, broken arm, almost broken pelvis, facial damage...blah, blah. Another accident when my daughter was 5-6 months old (she wasn't in the car, thank God) that cause neck damage.
As you might imagine and have been on many types of meds. for practically ALL THESE YEARS! (I am 42 now) I've had run ins with Pain Management, you literally wouldn't believe. Ask me one day....it will blow you away!
For right now I am seeing an orthopedist who's specialty is pm. The bad thing is the medicine he started me on worked. right off! Butrans was a miracle. We went to the next highest and I started breaking out, itching half to death. They got puss in them and broke. Now, this wasn't the outside where the tape is, but where the med itself comes out. I tried cleaning the area with alcohol, lotion hydro cream on 1 hrs. before apply it never helped. With much reluctance I offered to try something else, Nucynta this last month and it's been hell. No relieve...nothing. I go to my doc tomorrow and will have to tell him this can't continue. Do any of you have suggestions for a medicine that is strong, but won't make you loopy or a mannequin?
Any help would be appreciated.
