I'm hoping I didn't offend you with my comment? I just saw you say 'why are there no drug options' and was like 'there just be SOMETHING'. I just want you to feel better xoxox
I didn’t even get it until I saw this question haha. But no, no offense at all. Also, you are one of those people I don’t think could actually offend me because I know that you never mean anything in a rude way.
Basically: the short answer is all pain medication is addictive or causes damage to your body.
For instance while Panadol isn’t addictive it will destroy your liver. While morphine won’t destroy your liver it is crazy addictive. Of course, Panadol, even if we ignore the liver damage, doesn’t even touch the sides.
So yeah. It’s just a bit shit, really. Or, as my fellow inpatients said when I explained why I was a bit suicidal: “Well, you’re just fucked, aren’t you?”
BUT the doctors are hoping to refer me to an anesthetist who specializes in chronic pain management in Hobart and he might have some better options for me.
Postscript: there are some antidepressants and anti-epilepsy medications that have clinical evidence for helping reduce pain. I have three drugs was on that were not working for me (Effexor: venflaxine; Lyrica: pregabalin; and Endep: amitryptiline), and we are moving over to try a different antidepressant (Cymbalta: duloxotine) to see if that helps, but I’m still on the Endep for now too because it helps me sleep.
Oh okay :) I’m glad you know me that well. This must just be so frustrating. I’ll visit you next week, I’ll text to see where you are at xoxox
You ever feel like you’re giving so much to someone and that’s where the exchange stops? It’s just such an awful feeling when someone means so much to you. You want to mean just as much back and you just don’t.
