Advice & Tips: My 5 day Solumedrol treatment at the end of May, failed to improve the physical fatigue of my limbs. It was still an effort to move. I asked the Dr., thinking that my problem was mostly sensory, if something that blocks sensation (pain) would help. It has helped quite a bit. Though I want to stop after one week & see if I am ok withouut it. Not one I care to add to the daily regimen.

Advice & Tips: Because of other conditions (lupus, fibromyalgia), post-surgical pain takes at least three times longer to subside for me. This has often been a problem with doctors who are freaked out about addiction. I have NO history of addiction to anything except tobacco, but this seldom makes a difference. I get really tired of trying to convince these people that I AM IN PAIN STILL. Fear of the return of worse pain can make me very upset, which doesn't help. Still, even when I'm calm about it, I still hit the wall of their Fear of Addiction. Pain management still has a long way to go in the medical profession. I have never had a problem tapering off endocet/oxycodone as the pain lessens and subsides.
