Talking My Journey To Share

I was in a headon car accident in 1993: severe whip lash,severe back pain,sprained ankles and now have severe nerve pain in spine, neck, ankles and all joints.

I have: headaches - ALL THE TIME
myofascial pain syndrome
chronic pain syndrome
fibromyalgia
occipital neuralgia

I now own a wonderful neck brace that I get to tote around w/me incase I get a flair up from just sitting or standing the wrong way....I was on all kinds of phychiatry meds until they diagnosed me with these conditions that were a result from the auto accident.....

I NOW take IMITREX AS NEEDED FOR HEADACHES
NOURONTIN 300MG 3 X'S A DAY
VICODEN 2 5/500MG TABLETS 4 X'S A DAY
VALIUM DURING THE DAY FOR SPASMS
AND TO HELP ME SLEEP
ULTRAM IF NEEDED DOES NOT WORK FOR ME
FLEXERIL IF NEEDED DOES NOT WORK FOR ME

AND A TENS UNIT TO TOTE AROUND TO HELP WITH SOME OF THE PAIN WHICH I JUST BROKE YESTERDAY....WHEN I CANNOT THINK CLEARLY AND DO THE STUPIDIST THINGS....LIKE PUT WATER ON THE PADS TO HELP MOISTEN THEM WHILE THE TENS UNIT WAS ON......I CANNOT BELIEVE I DID THAT....JUST THE STUPIDIST THING I EVER DID AND NOW I WILL HAVE TO GET ANOTHER SCRIPT TO PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE AT MY EXPENSE, NO DOUBT THE INSURANCE COMPANY WILL NOT WANT PAY FOR IT...I HAD IT FOR 5 YEARS....I WILL HAVE TO CHECK INTO THIS, UGHH!!

I AM ON DISABLITY AND I DO NOT WORK AND JUST GETTING THINGS DONE AROUND THE HOUSE .....IS GETTING WORSE? I AM NOW REQUESTING A HIGHER DOSE OF PAIN MEDS....SO THAT IS WHY I AM ON THIS SITE....I HAVE BEEN OBSERVING IT AND I FEEL VERY CONFIDENT OF THE INFORMATION I FIND TO BE OF GREAT VALUE..
THANKS HEALTHBOARD!
MY SPIRIT TO LIVE AS WELL AS I AM ABLE ....IS NOT BROKEN..

Re: My Journey To Share

Sunshine: In case I haven't said it in one of your posts, Welcome!

I'm sorry for the reason you ended up here, but I am glad you found us. This board has been a very important place for me, since finding it, and I think you will find, we are a pretty terriffic little family (maybe a little grumpy once in a while, but hey...we all have pain! ) There is fellowship and support here and it is full of information.

So, again, welcome to the family. I look forward to hearing more from you. Take care, cmpgirl
