I live in a...

I live in a small are with no pain clinics and even if I travel I'll probably get no help. I have fibromyalgia, severe degraded tmj, mctd bursitis migraines and just constant pain. Also had a triple tier spinal surgery last December. I'm fed up with the politicians taking away pain meds from people who genuinely need them. I'm in such a depression and I don't know how many years I want to live in this severity of pain. I have children to care for I go to counseling I am at my wit's end. What are we supposed to do. These regulators are going to simply end up making a bunch of people who just want quality of life into a bunch or heroin junkies. I would never do heroin myself but I know that's what's gonna happen I am at my wit's end. So low and I don't want to go anywhere or do anything and take care of my baby girls but take no pleasure in it. It's sick and sad. Any ideas any suggestions even any slight encouragement because I am so low I'm barely surviving...

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

I go to counseling at least once a week I try to talk to friends or family but they can't help so they don't want to hear it they want to pretend it doesn't exist.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had some pretty intense bouts of bursitis which doesn't sound so bad but this was. I have hypothyroidism asthma chronic fatigue depression honestly anxiety and agoraphobia. I am on disability

I am not sure what you mean by "certainties." In your original question, you asked for any ideas or any suggestions, but whether I have any ideas or suggestions would depend upon what medicines have been tried.

The policies of JustAnswer is that I can only call if it is done through the proper mechanism.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
