Thread: I'm tired of this #$%&-ing pain!!!!

  1. #401
    I wanted to get back to every one and let you know that after the first couple of days things got a lot better. Friday when my daughter called to check on me, I was in tears and just about ready to go nuts. She talked to the RN on duty with her and she suggested that my daughter go get me some buffered aspirin to take along with the time released morphine mst 15mg. A world of difference, don't know why and don't care, it started working. If it keeps working this well, when they tweak the dosage in a month, I might actually feel like going somewhere or doing something. I know nothing will get rid of all the pain, they told me that and I'm not surprised. Just like they told me I have severe chronic pain, what a surprise!

    Has anyone else ever tried this stuff? I hope it really ends up working. I'm afraid to believe it will work. I've been told the people at this pain clinic are good at getting your pain under control, will keep you posted.

    I go to that jack ass of a class tomorrow afternoon. One thing that ticks me off is I have to pay for an office visit for this crap too. You would'nt believe the contract I had to sign for treatment too. I guess a lot of it is because of abusers.

    Beckers, the no sleep because you hurt too much cycle is out of control. I'm right there too -- last night's 4mg of Zanaflex plus 10 mg of Ambien plus 2 mg of Lunesta bought me 45 minutes of miserable sleep between 3a and 4 am. Been awake ever since, and am MISERABLE with pain and the need to crash. Maybe after I eat something...

    Anyway, sorry you had another suck ass night. It has done one very positive thing for you, though -- your anger is back, and anger keeps you alive. And you sticking around makes me and a lot of other folks happy.

    T, how did the much maligned opioid class go? As bad or worse than we thought?

    Sleep, blessed sleep ...how I wish

    Saw the new doc, will write more but a different experience. Doing testing June 1 and may wait until afterwards.

    Off narcs completely almost 2 weeks, still have withdrawal episodes and the pain is freakin nuts. saw my normal pain doc today and he told me I'm nuts but... He's offered a suboxone program says it will take a couple months to be done done with narc withdrawal, but i declined, he gave some tips for particularly bad episodes.

    only thing i take is skelakin, zanaflex and my other "normal" eg insulin, BP meds.

    having a shakes chills /swaets episode now FML

    My med class went as expected, so stupid. It was actually held in the waiting room at the end of the day! All he did was go over the paperwork/contract I've already read and signed. My son and grandson were there too, I had to laugh at my grandson, you could see him poking his dad to keep him awake. And to think I had to pay for this crap. It cost me two milk shakes (for the boys) and twenty-five dollars worth of gas on the way over and twenty-five dollars for the class and dunkin donuts on the way back home. What a waste of time and money.

    Been having extra burning again, I see a long night in my future. Been cloudy all day so I suppose it's storm related, again.

    Becky, I feel for ya kid. I hope the EMG can shed some light on the problem. At least my doctor at the pain clinic does'nt have to wonder if it's all in my head. At the class Dr Jones did go over how rough the state is on anyone treating or taking pain medications. That's the reason they're so strict on those treated. Problem is, that does'nt help us much.

    Becky, please be careful about mixing alcohol with your meds. I'm kind of a hypocrite when it comes to this topic -- I used to regularly wash down a handful of pills with a cocktail. Scared a few friends to death with that little stupid human trick.

    I can understand where you're coming from for sure -- I'd just hate to see you maybe end up worse off than you are now from mixing alcohol and pain meds (think valium and beer a la Karen Ann Quinlan).

    Ket Kit, poor puppy and poor you for not being able to sleep again. I get it -- took 4mg of Lunesta at 3am, back awake at 4:15a and haven't been able to sleep again since. I don't even know how many months it's gone on like this, every damn night. I'm so fricking tired...
