I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If ANYONE knows of a good doctor that prescribes strong meds willingly in the Denver area please email me and let me know. I am in desperate need of help as I am going to be SCREWED if I cannot find a good doctor. SOMEONE please help me with a doctor!!!!!

Nick, What can we help u with? R u currently on medication or being treated!
Small, Isn't that great? My son is diabetic, they can do pancreatic transplants, this could "cure" thousands of diabetics but they won't "approve" that either! Yes, it's expensive but no more expensive than a lifetime of insulin or products! Europe is so far ahead of us it's ridiculous!

"I was finally told by Dr. Depalma at Stoney Point Prkwy, Virginia that they are conducting Stem Cell trails in the spine for exactly what you have. The only other place that does this happens to be in Colorado. I'm telling you, that is going to be your best chance at getting real permanent relief for your back. It's worth looking into."

WOW! It's in TRIALS? That's *GREAT* news! That's a major milestone in any new medical development: Actually "trying" it on people to see how well it works!

Hi, Teep.

The first thing I'd like to tell ya is, you are not alone. You're not alone!, struggling with this, by yourself! I promise you this.
Other people helped me when I was very far down and hurting. It's something I pass forward. So, I offer myself as someone to talk to. Write me, tell me what's up. I'm pretty conversant in medical stuff, and I can “speak medicalese” in plain language. Write me at {edited for privacy}. Wave hello at me. You're not alone. You're connected to other people in many ways.

For example, the present Internet design makes you connected, literally, to 4.2 billion people, websites, and many other cool things. (I can show you how to do this math if you want; it's 2^32 power).

Here in MedsChat you've got genuine, great people, who care a great deal about you. They write passionately and from the heart. They've been writing to ask if you're okay. Everyone here is wondering. We care. We all hope we hear from you!

We are also a terrific *resource* for you. All of us here have been grinding through “the wars” about pain, as you are. Pretty much all of us are dealing with it day to day, just like you. A number of us are injured, as you are.

We get it. We understand. We know what it's like to be you. We really do. Look, it sucks. But it's easier to handle many rough things, if you'll include other people. I know this from my own life. I promise you it's true.

Everyone runs into what I call “speed bumps”. It's actually true that “when it rains, it pours”. Bad things tend to happen in bunches. Then life smooths back out, and remains relatively smooth for most of the time. (This is now called “chaos theory”.) It sounds to me like that's happening to you.

Okay, you're 44, you've been going to Pain Management for well over 10 years. Question: Are you still going to them? If something has happened to prevent that, would you tell me about it? I'm *really* good at finding new and innovative solutions. I had to learn to do this for my own sake's, so I am really motivated!

In our combined experience we know a heck of a lot of stuff, and it's very likely some of that will be very useful for you.

It's a shame you're talking about ending things, because in the big picture, you're on a roller coaster ride, going clank-clank-clank up, and you're pretty close to going over the top of it, and then the ride is "Wheee!"

Medically speaking, there is absolutely, definitely hope for you, and not that far off! I'm not making some vague hopeful promise here. Medical science / technology is growing so quickly it's going "exponential". Think of it as doubling every month. It's doubling even faster than computer tech, which is my specialty, and I can't keep up with all the new stuff there!
(If you punch 2 into a calculator, then multiply it by 2 over and over and over, at the 16th time (e.g., 16 months), you'll find the rate is 65,356 things happening per month. At 24 times, it's up to sixteen million per month!! That's only two years.)

New medical stuff has helped me with both severe panic attacks and pain, and has helped my son, who got type-1 diabetes at age 13. Back then, I showed him the numbers, and told him, Look, if you'll hang in there 10 years ... there will be a medical device that checks your blood sugar and puts out the right amount of insulin, and you can get away from giving yourself shots and all that. It took 6 years for him to get a new "insulin pump" that makes everything much easier. There's a new one now that takes care of everything, but does have the sense to ask before it puts in insulin. (Keeps a human monitoring the little computer). Now Harvard has come up with a way to make millions of insulin-producing cells. Put them on something the size of a playing card, put them somewhere in you, and they'll do everything you need.

I personally had an awful time with panic attacks. People don't really understand how severe they are. The best quote I've seen is, "A panic attack is the most frightening experience a person can have". Used to have them nightly. What sleep? I have no memory of the last 2 years of college because of them. (Somehow, I graduated.)

Now I take new meds, developed recently, that control panic, and control "the damage done", and I can even sleep, with new tech meds that help sleep.

You're living in the very first generation that has fantastic new technology, new medicines. This is the single best time to be alive in world history. You're also living in the nicest place to live anywhere.

Pain is a huge problem. Medical companies hear that. Pharmaceutical companies hear it. There's a boatload more pain-handling technology than there was 10 years ago! More and more comes available. (Heck, the only limiter is the government's FDA labs, which are notoriously slow. But change will have to come to the FDA).

In the structural problems of what's causing your pain, there's new tech. It's not the grim old days when we just fused spinal vertebrae together. It's not the old days of cutting the sciatic nerve. One day, my right thumb went numb. I went to a specialist. I watched cool new equipment track, and follow, the nerve impulses from my brain going to my thumb. They reached the boney part of the wrist, which sticks out, and stopped there. Oh, I remembered I'd banged that into something.
Treatment: wear a protective cover (tennis wrist band) and it'll heal itself.
It did.

Sure, I totally like new technology, and I very much enjoyed talking to the specialist about his tech.

I've been X-rayed so many times I glow in the dark. Really saves on indoor lighting! I've been MRI'd so many times that I feel the BANG! BANG! BANG! sound is lots better than rap! Boogie down!

I've been poked. I've been prodded. Everything possible has been put into every place in me!

I'm proud to say that I no longer have any embarrassment left over any medical procedure. (Yes, including THAT, and THAT!, too.)

(Like the song says, "I've paid my dues ... time after time...") Speed bumps are a b****. Other people help us get over them. Personally, I'm sporting a left knee that actually feels like its main bearings have failed. (That wonderful "clunk!" feeling.) It hurts like mad. I know that a diagnosis of "arthritis" is wrong, because it's only bothered me after I (ahem) fell onto the kneecap like an i****. Arthritis comes on slowly. This came on in about one second flat.

I know these things because of the fantastic resources of the Internet, especially Wikipedia. Very good medical section.
We're your resource. Use us. Tell us what has gone wrong so we can help. I'd bet that there are people here who also have the conditions and problems you're having. The combined experience is pretty likely to help you. It's only an illusion that you're alone and should give up. You're not alone. Medical tech to help fix you is on the way. I wouldn't say that if I hadn't seen it myself.

I monitor National Institute of Health and such and see very exciting, new technology, in papers and such. For example, I know that there is a spectacularly effective new treatment for panic attacks on the way. It just shuts them down. It's incredible!

Another example: If you look at pain as a signal being sent along a nerve, well, we already have the tech to monitor nerves, just like my specialist had. Want to bet someone will use a nerve sensor (just like a common heart voltage sensor), an AD558 A/D converter, an ARM CPU (they are now 1 x 1 mm in size, less than the size of a pencil lead), then an ALS7404 hex inverter, a 741 op-amplifier, and something conductive down to your skin - just another heart lead. Those leads are so inexpensive they throw 'em away after one use.

I could build this circuit on one of those Radio Shack prototyping circuit boards, using parts I have here. It'll listen to the nerve voltage, invert the sensed nerve voltage, and put that into the nerve system. That'll negate the nerve impulse -- stop it in its tracks -- without surgery and such. But I don't need to do this, because, it's already been done. All those little IC's I mentioned can all be rolled together into something less than the size of one dime.

You're living in the most incredible evolution of technology and medical science which has ever existed. Give it a chance. The world is an amazing place, with amazing people.

Feel free to write me. I'm pretty good at answering medical questions, partly because I have a brother who is a doctor, and I can always ask him.

Take care, and enjoy the perfectly lovely weather we've been having!

-- Smalls

Rainbow, You and me both hope Teep is ok! I wished he or she will write! Rainbow, What area of town r u in? I'll let u know the scoop when I find out about CPR but there r also doc's that take medicaid! I drive quite a ways to go to CPR because they were the first group that I liked and gave me options for treatment and actually examined me rather than just pulling out the script pad or wanting to immediately stick needles in me! They listened and we came up with a treatment that was agreeable to both of us! Maybe it's because I directly ask and they have always been up front with any questions I have, including DEA issues! They also listen to complaints and do things about these issues! I send folks to them all the time! I'll look up tomorrow some of my resources but I know there r a few out there that take medicaid and Medicare! U take care and I also pray Teep is ok!

Rainbow, You did a wonderful thing with Teep! I'm praying he/ she contacts us! Yes! I do go to CPR! I've been there about two years and yes, they have had a few issues, I don't know many pain problems that haven't but they really have been responsive to patient complaints and have a great group in there now! I refer many of my clients to pain programs and I didn't want to use someone who I refer to! What's funny is I now refer many to their program! Their whole staff is well educated and responsive to their patient's needs! I heard that they were applying for medicaid but I don't know if this is just for their suboxone program or the whole program! I just submitted my bills to medicaid and will let u know if they end up covering any of these bills! I'll also ask what the deal with medicaid is with them! I know that they realize many of their patient's r on medicaid and find the cost an issue but I'll ask what the deal is with them and let u know!

Please, please let us know you are okay. We are here to help and support. Sending you a hug and a prayer.
