Pain Management

Recommended Posts

I am on Plaqunile 400 mg, Prednisone 20mg and stronger meds and still have pain. My rheumatologist said that I'm on so mch medication he can't describe anything else, not that I want more medications, all these medications are given so much side effects that is making even sicker. I heard about pain management, I would if any of you had that to please give some thoughts. I apprecite your input.

I have had to go to a prescription pain patch that doesn't have any side effects. This is a patch that I wear on my body and change every 3 days that administers pain meds all of the time. They come in 25mg, 50mg, 75mg, and 100mg strength and I started out little and have had to amp up to the 75 and sometimes the 100mg strength. Maybe this is something you could look into. I know it's been a life saver for me and I don't know how I would cope with the pain without them.


Warm hugs,

Hi Alice,

When I was having excruciating pain with a gangrene finger ulcer, I was finally sent to a pain management specialist. It was WONDERFUL. For the first time in months, my pain was relieved. It wasn't that the other doctors weren't trying -- I had been on all sorts of heavy-duty drugs, but nothing was helping. The pain management helped me the very day I visited him.

By all means, see one!
