... had ever had the generic, in the past it has always been the name brand, so it has been quite a learning curve. I have also had generic norco, and I did notice a difference between white and the brand yellow, but it wasn't nearly as significant as this difference. ... (23 replies)

... My grandma, who is 90, just recently started having some weird pain in her neck that hasn't been diagnosed. She's had xrays, MRI and catscan, and nothing has been found. But she's in so much pain, despite 2 times a week physical therapy, that she can't turn her head at all. ... (2 replies)
... A Colonoscopy and a Sig are pretty much the same. My aunt is terrified to have hers done yearly, the one who has cancer, her doctor used to keep her awake during them until she insisted she put under and now has no problems. If your doctor refuses to put you under then seek another doctor, it's pretty simple. If your insurance won't cover it then plead your case and generally... (6 replies)
... Colonscopy is another scary word for me. My grandmother has one every year, as well as one uncle and two aunts. The rest go on the 5 year scehdule like you are. Out of the 8 (aunts, uncles, & mother), 2 are completely cancer free and one (my mother) refuses to be tested. My new pcp did mention that to me but hadn't said definitely if she wanted me to be tested yet or not. ... (6 replies)
... Thank you both Shore and Kissa. You both provided very good information. As you can see, I did make it through the procedure very well and will only have a slight reminder for about a week that it was even done (gonna have a nice little bruise from the IV). I wasn't scared at all. :bouncing: It was a pelvic scan today to check why I'm having numbness on one side. The... (6 replies)
... gh the donut hole. IF they are doing your head you may feel a little closed in although you can still see the what's going on in the room.

... hough some docs give every back pain patients Epidural steroid injections and some docs like to do trigger point injections. ZIF you have a visable problem in an MRI or CT that shows inflamation or impingement, a soft tissue injection wouldn't doa thing for it where an ESI would be the tstandard of care. ... (2 replies)
... I get more of a shock wave of pain down leg and get foot cramps (like the ones from swimming in a pool after eating). It usually starts in the lower back as very dull nagging stabbing pain then radiates down slowly, but my PM doctor thinks my MRI of L1, L2, L3, L4, and S1 Bulging isn't that bad so I suffer a lot w/ 5/500 MG of hydrocodone the reliefs me for an hour. Thank... (18 replies)

... Ang I am glad you made it through ok! It really isn't bad except that dye. For what it's worth I was told by my techician this "wetting myself" feeling is completley normal because the dye causes blood to rush to as she called it " our most sensitive areas". I felt it all over, so maybe if you are having a numbness issue this could by why you didn't feel it on both sides? I... (6 replies)
... my doctor first had me on oxycodone/percocet/endocet and that didn't last that long (only for like an hour) and it says on the bottle (take every 4 hours for pain) well now my doctor put me on oxycontin (10mg) and that seems to help a little bit better (a little bit longer) Are both of these pain med's different? (the oxycodone/percocet and the oxycontin) it says on the... (6 replies)

... Hello all. The last time I was on this website was almost 7 years ago when I was preparing for back surgery. I had a severely herniated disk crushing the sciatic nerve and general DDS. While surgery was successful to the degree I was able to walk again afterwards, I continued to struggle with bad chronic pain. An MRI following the surgery showed stenosis from scar tissue...

... never really went away, though it didn't get much worse either so I didn't think much about it. My left shoulder was bothering me the most, and I did go for an MRI and to an ortho, who didn't find anything seriously wrong. ... (36 replies)
