MyKingdomForYourHorse: She stole them because she doesn't have health insurance.Welp...no worries, we'll take care of your medical while you sit in a jail, but those of you still on the outside, you're still farked.Socialism!
here to help: BTW... anyone experiencing severe back pain or chronic muscular/skeletal pain harass your doctor for some muscle relaxers instead of just taking stuff like vicodin/percs/oxy/etc... They actually do something aside from mask the pain and gives you a better chance to heal. They are also a lot less likely to bork up your liver. Still highly addictive though.Also get some physiotherapy and make use of ice packs and heating pads. Ice and heat work better than most any pharma bullsh*t out there.
here to help: citizenj: flexerilThat's my go to for severe spazms. It's like a chemical massage and gives me marshmallow dreams. Sadly not covered by insurance. They will cover baclofen which works but it's nastier on my guts/mental state as well as the crummy acetaminophen based stuff. I've been told about Nucynta before but I'm a little wary of meds that haven't been around long.One day I hope all this sh*t will leave my life. I've been able to stretch/exercise more which really is the only way to get chronic muscular/skeletal pain under control in the long run. It's just a real b*tch getting to a point where you can even move enough to DO the necessary exercises.It's a terrible thing to live with. To all my pain consumed brothers and sisters out there... don't give up. Keep your mind occupied in the bad times and do EVERYTHING you can to regain some control over your body.Peace.
ReverendJynxed: Yeah I think the key to to not stop moving. I'm either moving or stuck in my chair and the longer I can go before sitting down the better.
Clemkadidlefark: Many vet drugs are fine for humansJust be sure you know what you're doing
here to help: ReverendJynxed: Yeah I think the key to to not stop moving. I'm either moving or stuck in my chair and the longer I can go before sitting down the better.Definitely. That's why physio is so great. A good PT will give you small, easy but effective exercises to keep things moving enough. Once you stop moving you are doomed.Anyway... didn't mean to get snippy in that last post but damn... I've been through the pain. I wouldn't talk sh*t about this type of thing.Feel better. Keep moving. Good luck.
here to help: Oh and the fusions are likely why the relaxers ain't working as well for you. With a slipped disc if muscles ease up the disc has a better chance of backing of the nerves. Fusion... well nothing is moving so all you can do is seek relief. That's where there isn't much choice aside from trying to mask the pain until you can get surgery. At least AFAIK... I haven;t had to deal with fusion yet.
ReverendJynxed: At any rate, glad you got something that works for you. Have a good one.
ReverendJynxed: citizenj: NucyntaHow do you function on Lyrica? I couldn't and I was at a low dose. Did you eventually get used to it or did you respond to it well from the beginning? I felt like a zombie with a flu if that makes sense. Odd feverish body aches to replace the other pains and general lethargy.
kitsuneymg: FarknGroovn: abhorrent1:snocone:MyKingdomForYourHorse:algrant33:Thanks for the answers - algrant - my dog just got a scrip for hydrocodone, poor guy is not doing so well these days. However, doesn't that usually have tylenol in it? Wondering if I should call my vet.The hydrocodone I've always gotten has said the amounts of each it contains on the bottle. I've been issues scripts for 5mg hydrocodone/500mg acetaminophen and 7.5/500. I would check the bottle and script. If they do not mention, I'd call the vet. Hydrocodone, in my experience, always has acetaminophen.
Somaticasual: BarkingUnicorn: Hope we see a lot less of this tragic dilemma when Obamacare kicks in fully.I'm not sure that's going to convince the sun to drop its pay wall..//sorry, couldn't help it..
