« on: August 19, 2006, 03:03:08 PM »
Can somebody please tell me what the best way is to stop going mad from the Pain??? I have tried epidurals, facet blocks, pethidine shots, morphine, surgery, and the list goes on and on and on. So is there any easy solution other than shooting myself that can stop this pain. I't is driving me mad.

Give us a rundown of the symptoms Ken and when they are worse, what gives you relief, your age, lifestyle, fittness etc. All these things are relevant and have a bearing on any advice. Point form will do.

I have a lot of pain as well, the thing that has helped me for 2 months free of pain, do you  visit a pain clinic, I had seen one pain clinic, the city, over twelve years ago, and they gave me advice, and I went to a back class in  the hostpital at the pain clinic, Ive been on meds for  over twenty years.
 ive had to stay on the same  med for twelelve years becuase that works at times, but it worked better when i went to the pain clinic and was given a infusion,  it works well with other things like morhine and things, it numbs the area of pain for a while which is what it is supposed to do.
I have to go  and have another one done, this month becuase the pain is really starting to get bad again, but the thing is, to not let the pain get as bad before you do domething about it, the pain clinic doctors say this.
