Hi. My name is Justina and when I am in pain, I am out of luck. Very few pain medicines actually take effect on me. If I get a migraine (and I do) the only way to avoid the eye stabbing agony is to "catch" it quick with excedrine, no other medicine works on my migraines. Now, I am having severe pain in my ear, neck, shoulder and down my arm. A frustrating visit to my doctor's office (my doctor who knows pain meds dont work, is on maternity leave) had the doctor recommending ibuprofin. I calmly explained that I dont have any ibuprofin as it simply doesn't work on pain and she suggested that I buy some or try accupuncture. She then wrote a prescrpiption for 600 mg of ibuprofin and 10 mg of flexeril. None of them wor ked (I knew they weren't going to.) In a bizarre but related twist to this, I have awakened in the middle of two operations. Yes, it does happen, I am told it is quite rare but it happens. Is there anything at all that I can do, besides tell my doctor that medicines don't work to get relief? I am crying and rocking in pain. I cannot turn my head, I cannot look down, my neck is on fire and nothing works.
