  • We're not supposed to post as medical professionals. Speaking from a nurse's viewpoint you are a doctor's worst nightmare. I know chronic pain changes your entire life, but that attitude will get you nowhere.

  • Thanks rll54, that sounds rough. But it's interesting how much I hear about drugs with off-label uses here meaning Cymbalta, Lyrica, Gabapentin, etc. Something to keep in mind.

    The quote button was not part of the Vanilla Forum software. However, it still works as it has before.

    1. Copy a portion of text that you want to use in your quote
    2. Use the BBC code [function=membername]
    3. Paste the text
    4. End the BBC code with its normal [/function]

    Still looking for that "quote" button here...

    *** Note: The function would be replaced by the BBCode quote and have the appropriate [start] and [/end] tags

  • Having delt with chronic pain in general for a long time, you are most likely going to be started out on NSAIDS and not opioids/narcotics. When I first started pain management, I was on Mobic. It didn't do anything for me but literally make me sick. If you aren't in pain management, you most likely are only going to get NSAIDS or something similar like Tramadol or a very low dose of Gabapentin but will always be started with 600-800mg or Ibuprofen. Usually if you start suggesting narcotics, that is the quickest way to not get anything for pain because you will be seen as an addict. Also generally stuff like Oxycontin is only given for very sever pain like for cancer patients and similar.
