Wow! It says at a year, patients actually have more pain if they’re on opioids! If this is really true then the whole opioid addiction crisis could have been avoided! Sad.
A first-of-its-kind study compared opioids to non-opioid drugs in patients with persistent back pain or hip or knee osteoarthritis. Its results are devastating.
I had a really bad episode last night. I’m not sure what kicked it off–i didn’t feel great through the day but after navigating traffic yesterday to drop my youngest off at dance. i started feeling really, really bad. It just kind of piled up until I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. I can’t get in to Dr. Bishop today because he is booked but I can go tomorrow and see him at 2 p.m. Hopefully i can see him then. If I start feeling bad again today, I’m just going to go straight to the hospital.
Please pray that this won’t happen again today. I’m feeling all right for right now but I don’t know what will happen later today. I just know this is awful-feeling and I want it to stop.
