My life fell off a cliff literally! I lost everything with in a year including my house.
At any rate I hit rock bottom and I literally tried to drink myself to death so I wouldn't have to think of what was going on in my life. I ended up getting Chronic Pancreatitis. I now take pain med all the time and am looked at like I am a drug addict or get doctors who have no remorse because I did it to myself(i dont need it trown in my face,I live with the choices I made) My question is do you happen to know any good pain mngt Doctors? one that will worry aboout my pain and not what I did in my past?
Actually, you may want to look into getting a psychiatrist, sometimes they can actually help with your state of mind, which also controls your pain.
Its never a bad thing to get psychiatric help, because it shows you want to fight, and you want to show that you are strong and can move on.
thats exactly what i did Lorrees, i saw one for over two years. the comment i made above about my life falling off a cliff happened about 5 or 6 years ago. the funny part of your statement is..i hva e moved on, it seems that my doctor that i am/was seeing hasn't. That why i was asking for a good pain specialist..they kind of do that to in there own ways(reach into your psyci). You could be skipping through a field of flowers as happy as you have ever been and you will still be in pain with pancreatitis.
Thankyou for the comment though. it's appreciated.

How do you deal with chronic pain?I have degenerative disk disease that causes an insane amount of pain. I am told I need to go onto "pain management" (nice way for docs to say permanently on heavy pain killers). So I ask all of you, do you have any ways of dealing with chronic pain, are...

I have long held to the belief that Doctors are creating a entire subsection of drug addicts. Most Doctors that prescribe a narcotic medication for a patient do so in good faith but then as the patient moves into long term need the Doctor instead of listening to his patient will offer things that...

I just had (another) neck MRI in September, and the news wasn't good. I've had a prolapsed (aka slipped) disc for a few years, and now it's causing "mild central canal stenosis." I'm in constant pain, have such poor strength in my hands that I need pliers to open a bottle of...

I've had a sore back for the last 6 months and don't know what the cause of it is. I went to a chiropractor 3 times with no relief and I have been going to physical therapy now for a few weeks and it's actually feeling worse right now. I had an x-ray last week but haven't heard anything back yet so...
