Hello all. I finally got to see the ortho the other day. Very short but figured he was busy. He wants to do a facet joint injection and I was all for it......however since this a workers comp claim I have to jump through hoops. In the meantime he put me on a Medrol pack and gave me Tramidol. As im trying to process all this I dont even think to question medicines as im so tired of psin. Turns out I do not tolerate Medrol (awful mood swings insomnia red swollen face hot and poinding headache after three days) and since I have had seizures in the past I cannot take Tramidol (which didnt touch the pain anyway). So I call the phys and wait two days for a call back....verdict......take tylenol or see pain management and dont see ortho! Are they serious???? If tylenol worked I would take it and skip all this! And I cant wait for workers comp to cleat pain management and get block thru....this is barbaric! Has anyone else dealt with this? ??? All I want is some relief and feel like im being treated as some drug seeking addict! About ready to just cry!
