Still Hurting

Jan 05, 2016 3:05 PM

Since Dec. 17 2016 I've been having a what I call a flare. Today it is in my elbow joints, fingers, toes, feet, the back of my heel, and the gums in my mouth.I was supposed to go to pain management but they called me with an appointment for the 1110th of January. I'm so tired of this I don't know what else to do. I take tramadol and a bunch of Tylenol

Sutherngurl... Sorry your going through this. I understand how you feel im been going through it myself and the thing is how it jumps around. It makes u feel crazy. And dealing with these doctors is a trip..I'm also on tramadol as a breakthrough drug. And it works hardly at all.. And my new doctor gives me 30 pills to last two months. It's crazy

Oh wow!! Yes it's hard to be taken seiously. I guess because so many people have abused narcotics that the doctors think that we come in with fake pain looking for pills. I rather not take anything but the way I feel I need something!!! I pray that I get a diagnosis. I also have Diverticula and my colon always gets inflamed so I have that in top of the joint pain.

Yes. I recently was diagnosis with fibromayalgia. And I've got several large tumors and possible Lupus. My diagnosis is new also only about 10 months.
I'll be praying that you get some concrete answers very soon so u can start to make a plan for your life.

I am prescribed 2 tramadol a day and I take sometimes 5 a day with Tylenol. I can't sleep at night from the pain. They have me on Trazdone for that. They've taken so many test they did another arthiritis test and they sent the results the the pain management doc didn't call me and tell me anything. I was on oxycodone and it started making me look old and my hair was falling out by the clumps! My Stomach doc have me tramadol and the other doctor got upset because I failed to tell him. I had so much going on at the time and they were talking about taking the lower left portion of my colon out I was hysterical so I was thinking about what medication I was on at the time. But I'm at a new doctor now and I hope that she understands and helps me.

Yes. They were asking me about Lupus. I'm 35 my husband is 50 with Diabetes he takes insulin shots and moves around better than I do. He have to help me out of bed and walk sometimes that's how bad it is and I'm always wore out irritated and depressed. I pray that this is my year for comfort. I first started having symptoms in 98 it started in both legs they were aching lone a toothache now it has spreader all over even my gums and I forget things so I don't make decisions or handle money during these things.

It's crazy how doctors have so many opions but yet refuse to speak to each other. I've been blessed to finally find two gyns who are willing to work together on my case.
You have been dealing with a lot and all that sounds painful. I wonder if the doctor's even know how it feels to be In pain all the time? I can see how your situation would.cause you to be upset.

Yes. I guess they don't. But they should be able to spot the real from the fake. Also I was sent to a pain doctor who is a colleague of what was my primary care physician and as soon as I walked in he stereotyped me. I mean I was well dressed and all just because one is in pain doesn't mean that we have to dress raggedy. I guess he likes for ones to look all bummed out or reined out. I don't know but i could tell when I walked in the look in his eye and he was very rude to me. I really didn't like going there. So I pray that God has put a doctor in place that will help me until he sees fit to heal me.
