Monkey update, hope everyone is doing okay

Hi back buddies Just wanted to update on whats been going on lately and check in on everyone else! I recently started physical therapy for my back and shoulder and i'm finally seeing a pain management Dr. I thought it was going well about a month ago but it seems i am getting worse again after a few injections. Just had one this week and last night i slept in the bed and omg i had to get help again getting out of bed And to add to this i have a very sore spot on my back. And stomache issues to add. The dr. took me off vicodin and put me on morphine a few times a day and it's not helping argh. I am about done with this. I feel like and old lady at the age of thirtyseven ugh. It's like no test is showing anything and yet i can't move in the am and struggle to walk all day Where do i turn now? I am thinking about having my dr. refer me to a local Ortho that i think would be one of the best, i don't know. Take care, monkey

Re: Monkey update, hope everyone is doing okay

Dear Monkey,

Hi! I'm sorry you are continuing to have so much pain! I know how hard and frustrating it is to try to pinpoint where the pain is coming from-I went through that a few years back. Does your Pain Management Dr. think he should inject a different area/level to see if that would work? I know I had several injections that didn't work so well, then my doctor tried a different area and he hit the right spot. I hope you can find some relief! Take care, Kera4
