Glad it's not the BIG C!!!! I know what u mean about the knots and the need of a good massusse but no money for one. All my doctors and specialists told my insurance company that massage would help more then surgery or physical therapy. Insurance company said to bad, have the surgery cause we cover that. Idiots!

That's sooooo ridiculous!😡

If you have a college in the area that teaches massage therapy you can get massages cheap! The students need to get the hours of practice and the instructor will guide you with regards to whom to schedule with. There is one about 45 minutes away from me but they do one hour good massages for 25.00 also you cannot legally tip them. Right now they have a special 3 (1 hour appointments) hours for 50.00 if you prepay. I set up appointments with a girlfriend so we can share the driving. Check into that maybe.

Glad to hear no word of big C. My muscle relaxers don't really help my muscle pain either! My doctor was talking about possibly trying calcium channel blockers instead. It might be something for your doc to look into. Massages hurt me, even lying on my front kills me, and a bad one will eff me up. For the money I want a sure good experience! I hope something good comes your way, it sounds like you have it rough right now.

It's a shame doctors are so reluctant to prescribe pain pills because of the ones who have abused them and spoiled it for the rest of us who need them!😡

May 05, 2017 11:19 AM

Massages are wonderful. Make sure to tell her to go easy at first. She can always add miore pressure as she goes. Sometimes you can hurt some afterwards but it's good for the muscles. 👍

"Another hole bitten into tongue"
@Frustrated: I know someone who was getting fentenal patches when there is nothing wrong (aside from abuse). and I couldn't even get lidaderm patch from ER...she ended up in rehab,
and I end up being banned cuz I'm the bloody idiot who has been honest!

Last trip to ER, that was first thing dic said...I'm not giving you any, this is an emergency room...
Begged, that's right BEGGED for CT scan...confirmed issues and added news ones that didn't get picked up in Feb...still no pain meds!

May 07, 2017 7:56 AM

Wooooow spunky! It's just wrong! A little help would be nice. Especially after Ct scan confirmed issues!😡. Soooo sorry!

May 07, 2017 8:29 AM

Thank you kindly Frustrated...I have friends and family who can't believe this either...and we end up with..."but you have documented health issues!" I'm getting to the point where I let dics have attitude! Saying it's wide spread pain...as if that the amount of pain! PT doc told me I am too inflamed for physical therapy...PCP doc says "I disagree, you need to move" so this arogant jerk is saying the specialist doesn't know his job?!
Then PCP shouldn't be a general doctor eh?
Sorry, my evil twin is trying to get in conversation...he he he...

May 07, 2017 8:36 AM

I understand. It's easy to let the 'evil twin' come out when time after time after time after time we are blown off like we are drug seekers.

And whatever happened to the HIPPA law? I went to see this doc and he had CT scans, MRIs
(and charging me to have it re-read!) without me signing anything!
I had tried another doctor whom I thought might be sympathetic; had a listing of all medications I had been given! Again, I didn't sign any release forms!😡

Or don't we have those rights anymore? Do you remember when they changed classification of codiene? What a mess that was!
