    Anytime a pain level approaches 8,  you should be thinking ER or calling your Doctor.  At pain level 9, you should already be in the ER.  Once a pain level really hits 10, the person is no longer capable of making any decisions or taking care of themselves.

    You are still 10 days away, call your doctor, leave a message or at least head over to the ER 
  • im going to leave a meressage whe the doc reopens after lunch
  • So I called my pain management doctor and he said he needed the okay from my psychiatrist to give me pains meds as he does not know what to give me that is safe so i called my doctor and he said I can take norco with my meds which includes klonopin and I looked up the interactions and what I found is it is not safe to take them together BUT my god nephew psych doc says it's okay so I don't know what to do but I trust my doctor I'm just confused now
  • so its been a couple years since this has been updated so...

    ive had several injection types and trips to pain magement and i can say i have new problems i even had a 2nd opinion 

    im 2 days from a MRI my last one was in 2017 and the PA i have seen offered alternitive medicine CBD oil or accupunture 

    she listend to me and my conserns and she orderd the MRI and a back brace for help she commented that i have a great relationship with my psychcririst

    my pain level is between 6-10 when i have days i volenteer its worse but even at a high level i HAVE to keep going i have no option im too young to have this pain i JUST turned 27 

    the diffrence between this post and the last is i was seeing a NP and not a PA or the doctor the PA is conserned and said a MRI and seeing the neurosurgon wouldnt hurt because she think theres problems at a new level as i have what i had in my left leg i now have in my right leg i always keep in my mind that deep inside is a warrior that isnt afraid of anything because thats true 

    my current digsnosis is DDD and Spinal Stenosis
