Customer Question
My 74 yo wife...

My 74 yo wife has been experiencing strong pain in all he joints. Shoulder, back, arms, hip, and legs. She has been seeing a pain management doctor for over a year where the pain was mostly in her left knee. She had her knee replaced five years ago but the pain never went away. She is taking exalgo 12mg once a day, nucynta 100 mg ever six hours, zolpidem 10 mg at bed time, gabapentin 300 mg every six hours. My wife remains in extreme pain all over her body and can barely walk to the bathroom using her walker. Do you have any idea what is causing her pain?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

The question is not about me but about my wife.

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.
