Injections scheduled !

Jun 25, 2015 5:46 AM

So excited , went to the pain Clinic and they confirmed I have FM. Also nerve damage in neck, scheduled to have injections on the 8th. I hope this helps, my yard looks like it's been abandoned! I wish there was a patch I could wear that would diminish the pain and allow me to do my day to day jobs

Only individuals with pain say "yay injections"!
I have the same diagnosis as you... It's been a roller coaster ride.

I wish you well Newty.

Of course the have pain patches... Fentanyl (yuck)... Butrans (same drug as subutex.... Doesn't have opioid issues.... And my fav, lidocaine patches.

**lidocaine patches; ensure you get generic. They are thinner/stickier and for you neck, it's tricky to keep those on!

I pray your injections ( assuming cortisone) go well... And you'll wake up pain free.

Newty, I'm glad you have a confirmed diagnosis, and I pray your injections bring you great relief! πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Newly, I'm glad that you have your diagnosis. Sometimes that's half the battle in puting a name to the problem and being able to say to the ignorant folks who don't believe you, that its not something that's in your head. I pray that the injections are successful and give you the relief that you need.
