Re: New Here & Desperate!

I am sorry you are hurting so bad. I am a 42 year young person that has bad arthritis. I had a bone scan done and my internist said I have the bones of an 80 yo. I have been taking lortab 10/500 for three years. I take one in the morning and one in the evening. Yes, docs do treat you like you are not hurting that bad. I recently asked my doctor to fill out a form for me to get a handicap parking permit. That was a god send. If you are hurting that bad ,you need one. Believe me it helps. See if the doctor will give you ultracet. I had a bad fall last january and have had two surgeries and now my neck is really in bad shape. He gave me the ultarcet and told me to tryit. I hate lortab. The ul;tarcet seems to help some. Are you really hard to get going in the mornings? If you are then try some really hot showers and alot of caffiene. It seems the caffiene gets me headache free from the neck pain from the artho. Also there are some good docs out there you just have to trust god will send you one. your sed rate is a little high. But you might have the beginnings of osteoporous. Check with a spinal clinic if you have them there. Again i wil pray for you. God is the greatest pain speacialist
