    Madwolf, I am going to doc next week and am going to try to convince him to prescribe stronger pain meds. I was taking ultram but was getting real bad neck and jaw tension, result migraines. Since I stopped pain not as bad.

    I took hydrocodone at one time with little effect. I am on neurontin right now which helps my leg pain. I work full time and some days I just come home and cry from pain in my upper back and hips. I have headaches everyday and have migraine med for when it gets full blown, but I have limited amount of that and am very stinchey with it.

    I just want to function better after having a hard day at work. I can't take care of my family and home the way I want too. I think that they are taking care of me way too much.

    So any suggestions would be welcome. Thank you, Valley.

    You sound like you have alot of pain in various areas and could use something to help you restore your quality of life. Only certain docs will presribe those kinds of meds.
    Hope this will hold over until Madwolf will get to you.

    With my experience, rheumatologists do not like to prescribe pain meds nor do some general practitioners either. I see a pain specialis/anesthesiologist at a local pain clinic and get my pain meds from him. Just a suggestion. Toots
