Pain Management for tts

Posted by Kiki Prieto on 7/12/04 at 15:08 (155200)

What can PAin management offer that your promary doctor cannot? I was told that by my PCP that i would be injected or popped with pills. Any one have success with Pain management?

Have you tried neurontin? Works for many but i think more for the burning and zingers one gets from tts. It doesn't work much for the pain for me at least but does for the burning. Have you had any test done to confirm you have TTS? I would suggest going to a specialist like a podiatrist or an orthopedic foot and ankle specialist.

Good luck, keep us posted.

When I was going through this I found this unacceptable. I mean they can operate on the heart and brain but all they could offer me was pills? No I find pumping somebody full of medication to mask a problem and treat a symptom unacceptable. I had to go elsewhere to get fixed.

Hi TTS Suffers. I have had TTS for over two years and some of the worse pain you can imagineable. I refused to get surgery and now I have come across a miracle potion on the market to heal almost all of you problems. I know! How because I have sued it now for over a month and a half and only have one small symptom of TTS left. I am hopeful that that will soon be gone and it's natural stuff. Email me if you would like more information. I am not doing an advertisement but a testimonial for this product because I could not hardly walk or sleep and now I am back taking Jazzercise classes!!! Email me for the information and you can make up your own minds. (email removed) It WORKED for ME!

I had pain for almost 15 years and no one could seem to help me. If you found relief good for you but I used every lotion potion pill and notion. None of it worked. Got surgery and am perfectly 90% now which is acceptable.

May want to watch postings by Barb L. Seems to be plugging a product against the rules of the message board.

cindy, how long did it take you to get to 90%

about a year after surgery i was i would say 75% but you have to find a excellent (emphasis) foot and ankle reconstrutive surgeon I went to 9 dr.s before I found help. by 2003 I felt about 90% some days I feel 50%. But it is a mind thing sometimes. There was a time in my life I just wanted to die after many years of suffering.

cindy,

it's been 1.5 years after surgery to one foot and I'm not even back to the point i was before surgery. I'm still improving though so I have hope i will get better.

Your comment about Barb L. is right on. She sent me e-mail regarding an alternative medicine called Growth Hormone. Cost for a 20 ml bottle was $85.00! She contacted me under another e-mail name ((email removed) and Barbl@ecowboy.com) If there was proof that it worked, maybe I'ed buy it, but I can't afford more junk.
