Hi, I've come to the conclusion that RE:PF that doctors are clueless
I have been years trying everything the doctors wanted, I,ve been through the whole gamit from night splints,casting,ulta sound, orthodics(3 different kinds) shots, taping, you name it and I have probably tried it, I finnally opted for surgery, which wasn't sucessful. I had surgery in oct of 96 and actually I feel my pain is worse. After switching doctors again I was referred to a pain center they tried lumbar blocks on the nerves which didn't help and then gave me a prescription that didn't help, but finnally this last time they wanted me to try SYNALGOS for the pain. I,ve been taking it for a week and one half now, and was amazed that I had forgotten what it feels like not to have pain all the time. I never was big on medications and was almost reluctant to do this, I don't know if there will be any ramifications from taking this as I don't talk to the doctor again until next week. The bottom line is that I've lost alot of years of my life but not being fully fuctional because of the pain, I just wish I had started taking this eight years ago!!!! SAVE yourself some time, money, and aggravation,and see if a doctor came come up with a pain medication that is safe and works for you, now that I,ve taken this medication I actually feel like my old self again, and wonder why I was so dumb and put up with the pain for all those years. Got carried away here but I do wish you the best of luck and hope you you keep your sanity, I thought I was nuts, thinking no one could have the pain that I had until I found this web site, hope someone out there has the answer for you.
