About Me: Female, 38, Tracy, CA, member since Aug 2010
I have 2 kids. One 10 yr. old girl who gives me a lot of trouble. I also have another 2 1/2 yr. old girl. I am a stay at home mom. I don't know what caused my slipped disc. I just woke up one day in pain. The pain grew stronger day by day from there. It took 6 months ju
[More]st to get my MRI just because I wasn't in an accident and they didn't see any reason for an MRI. So I have been living with this for a year now and for some reason my Dr. wont diagnose me with Chronic pain. WHY? That means I can't even go to Pain Management. I have yet to have an epidural injection. I am getting that next month.
Just a quick note to say hi!From MZ33
My comments are based on what has happened with me and is not advice.
Breakthrough meds were always given to with
my doctor saying Less is Best.And my meds have changed up and down as he tries to hit the best pain relief with least amount. This is very important to me because I don't want to find the wall where nothing else will work and I am at the max.
