Default Chronic Pain & ER

I currently deal with depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. About a week ago over a 5 day period I was in the ER 4 times for nausea, extreme anxiety, and intense pain like a flare up. I went to see my chronic pain doctor earlier this week and I explained that from time to time the pain meds make me sick and I go through these symptoms which are better but I am not 100% yet I still have a way to go. My doctor says no that canít be pain meds they donít do that. Now who knows my body better him or me? I have been going through this for years already. He said there must be some underlying condition that I dont know about. He just wouldnít listen. It really makes me mad when I am very proactive in my care and there are doctors (most) that still only think in the box. Not everything is textbook.

I'm sorry your in pain and not being heard that can be very frustrating, can you get a second opinion?

Have you ever tried Accupuncture or Reflexology? It might help also. IDK. Just an idea.

Thanks for the suggestions. I feeling like I have exhausted just about all avenues for the pain in my feet. I know what the problem is. I have flat feet it's called plantar fasciitis and it painful. So I take pain meds for it. But these doctors are stuck in there molds and never here anything outside there schooling. I am in physcial therepy for it. Hopefully this will help. Doctors just make me real mad with there narrow minded attitude.

Okay, okay! I got plantar Fascitis too. I've had it for years! Accupuncture actually helps me with this. I remember one time I went into the Accupuncturist and could barely walk and told her my problem, I got off the table and walked home-no problem.

I also had a chinese massage lady she was from Shang-hi, anyway that poor woman worked hard on me and she would stretch those muscles out for me. There was one time I got to her office, it was only a 2 block walk and she didn't want to massage my calf muscles, I told her I literally couldn't walk back to my car, I needed her to work on me.

I've also gone for Physio Therapy and this stuff does work, big time. You have to do the foot exercises they help and I still do them to this day.

I also went to a Foot Doctor here and I went and got Orthotics made for my shoes, I wear these everyday at work. I have a pair for home also but wear them from time to time.

The reason I tried Chinese Medicine was because my company paid for it. So wtf? give it a try and then I began to notice that Accupuncture worked. Also, because my Canadian Doctors weren't taking me seriously, Accupuncture helped out where my Canadian doctors wouldn't listen.

So keep going to physio, but I would also suggest Accupuncture can help it out too, I call it compliments physio. I had instant relief that day from accupuncture and I was shocked.

I also had Carpal Tunnel and went for physio on that too and at the same time went for Accupuncture. I really believe they compliment each other and the Accupuncturist was saying some of the same things that physio was saying.

Another time I slipped and fell, my foot was all bruised and swelled up I was told to Ice it. For one month I was limping. I went into accupuncture and the lady there was curious, she said in chinese medicine they use heat and not ice. She did a heat treatment on my foot, I got up again and walked off the table, no limp.

The foot doctor did some x-rays on my feet and I also had heel spurs too and that is very, very painful. When you first get up in the morning, do those stretches. Infact, you reminded me to go put my sneakers on right now with the orthoics in it. I try to stretch my foot muscles at work also, I should be doing it daily but I do it from time to time.

I really hope this helps. Do you have the heels spurs?????

Last summer my feet starting hurting again, so I decided to go back to physio, the people there told me that as soon as I start to feel a problem in my feet to come back because it's easier for them to fix to, if I don't let it go too long, it will take less visits. So I went back and complained about my feet, she had to do a re-assessment, I was upset because it was my feet hurting, it turned out that my hip had fallen out of place and it was affecting my knees and my feet. The feet were a symptom.

Go to physio and do the exercises! Go to a foot doctor also and get the orthoics. You have to wear them every day. Try accupuncture if you can, it can be helpful.

Thanks You Too Much for the info

I just had my first visit with a chronic pain physical therapist regarding my plantar fascitis. She took my history down and gave me some exercises to do. So we are starting to move in the right direction I hope. I have been wearing custom Orthotics for the past year and I have see very little little help from wearing them. I wish I could try the Acupuncture but i cant afford it on disability and they will not pay for it. I will look into the cost and see if I can find a decent price were I can at least try it out a couple of sessions. Thank you for sharing your experience. It has given me something to think about.

I've had plantar fascitis for about 10 years now. Really hope you can try a few sessions of Accupuncture too. But physio will help you out, just do those exercises. Since the muscles in the calves are tight, massage can help stretch out those muscles. When I saw my Chinese massage lady I didn't need to go for physio apparently the massages and the orthotics were enough but she worked hard on stretching those muscles. One time it got so bad for me it went into my thigh muscles.

Also, don't wear heals or flip-flops. Once in a blue moon I'll wear heels but the next day I'll be paying for it. Another thing I do if I have to wear heals, I'll go out and wear my heels but when it's time to come home change into flats, sneakers, or sneakers with orthoics, sometime I leave a pair of sneakers in the car for the drive home. No one sees then.

It's a real attack on your womanhood not to wear heels. Just sucks.

So, now I have flat winter boots to wear. Heels shorten the muscles in the calves. Hurts like Hell too.

Let us know how things go and if physio is working.

Thanks too Much You have given me hope.

I know how doctors can give you the run around but it seems there on the level this time. I am doing the exercises they prescribed. I only wear special sneakers with my orthotics and barely ever walk bare foot as I know how bad it is for me. Since i'm male I don't have to wear high heels but i can understand your point.
