Customer Question

I am in constant pain with my back. I worked as cna for many years and all the lifting of residents has made it to where I can't fully bend over or sleep at night.

Hi, thanks for the question. Have you tried any medications yet?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No as of right now I have no insurance and haven't been able to go. I've taken tramadol in the past for it. About 4 years ago. I try to manage with ibuprofen and it seems to not be helping.

Your best option now is to find a pain specialist that can treat you for the pain. Since you don't have insurance, you should start by looking for clinics in your area. Most hospitals have clinics and you can apply for their charity.
