Discussions that mention morphine

Open to All Other Health Topics board


A few weeks ago, I was rushed to the ER due to severe pain in my lower left side. The pain caused me to throw up numerous times. I was given morphine for the pain and tests to determine what the pain was from. Internal ultrasound, vaginal cultures, CT scan, blood tests and numerous urinalysis, they came up with nothing. I was sent home with no hope and nothing for the pain if it returned. Their intial thought was that I was passing a Kidney stone but none of the tests would confirm that. I have now gone weeks (off and on) with the pain, though not nearly as severe. I have been drinking plenty of water, no help. My Dr. told me I may be constipated and I did all that he told me to do, no help. I was giving a muscle relaxer because he thought that I may be having muscle spasms, no help. He also told me to make an appt, with my OB/GYN because I have a fibroid and it may be causing the pain, I have to wait until next week.

Anyway, I am now very fatigued, my heart races occasionally (even if I am just laying down doing nothing), I am getting hot flashes, my knees are weak sometimes, when I walk around (i.e., the mall) I get very weak and tired and feel as though I am going fall out, I lose my breath and it takes time for me to recover.

On top of all of this I have a lumbar sprain (back) that I am to take medicine for. It has now graduated to giving me shooting pains. When I went to the Orthopaedic Spec. he had no reason for the pain (all tests came back fine) and he gave me medication for the pain. I went to a Chiropractor, no help.

So right now, I am at my wit's end. I would like to feel good but where do I start?
