hardinparamedic: And people need to stop treating EVERYONE as an addict who seeks help for pain. Once you've been doing it a little while, you can learn the addicts. The 90 year old woman with the angulated hip is not one.
StoPPeRmobile: Can't stand opiates. I have only asked 3 times in my life. Treated with suspician./vet//back issue
socodog: I seem to be allergic to opiates. Some hooker gave me an oxy years ago and I felt like I was near death for a day and a half.
starsrift: If I'm going to a doctor for pain and he asks me to rate it on a scale from 1 to 10, I'm gonna say it's an 11. That's just how it works./ actually, that's not true. When I've gone to emergency for various pain-inducing conditions, the doctor has often commented on my seeming indifference to it.// and then I go home and actually get some blissful sleep since I'm not distracted anymore

FizixJunkee: Seriously, people have different thresholds for pain, and different tolerances to pain. Childbirth wasn't nearly as bad as chronic back pain or migraines, if you ask me.For back pain, I was told to take ibuprofen; in contrast, I could have received far more potent drugs during childbirth, even though childbirth didn't hurt as much as back pain. Go figure.And for migraines, nothing works for me except Imitrex. Even Vicodin does nothing.
FunkOut: They don't listen well.
