|A little about me:||I am a male 55 years old. May 8th of 2005 I had a heart attack. In Cardiac Rehab I noticed I could never stretch my calves out to where their was no pain associated with exercise. My body gradually started to have more and more areas of pain and it would never go away. About 3 years ago while working in Bakersfield California I had contineous pain and exhaustion. I was put on oxycontin by the MD I worked for. I am a traveling Nurse by profession. When I returned home to North Dakota my Doctor took me off the oxycontin. For the last 3 years I have remained in constant pain. I am on Tramadol, Cymbalta, Klonopin, Plavix, Asa 81 mg, Metoprolol 25 mg bid, Lipitor. I have tried Neurontin which I can not tolerate. I Have tried Lyrica and can not tolerate that. The pain is getting worse along with my memory. I am so sick and tired of being in pain all of the time. I do not enjoy life at all. I think of Suicide 50 times a day then tell myself how stupid those thoughts are. I am at the end of my rope though. I would like the pain to be under control and to be able to enjoy life again. Narcotics seem to work the best but the use of them turns into a downward spiral. Catch 22. A person has the right to be pain free. The Doctors around here will not prescripe pain killers. I do not know what to do. I do not want to go onto disability. I like what I do for a living when I am feeling good. I am tapering off Cymbalta and we are going to try a different antidepressant for pain control.|
