Hello, most of us have pain, and take many different avenues for relief. I have in the past, called 911!!! The pain was very bad and i had neurological pain (very bad). I now have a morphine pump implant in my stomach and it stops me from screaming. I think this pump has worked for me in more ways than one. I hope i never use anything else. I have had success with the morphine pump and i do not want to chance being without it.
I get relief the minute, it should start...yes, you do have break thru pain with the pump...i do not want to experience, the pain again!! It works for me and gives me a chance to live a near normal life. So, i am happy with the treatment.

@mickey Thank you for sharing.
What is your pain from? I have severe RA and pain, but I have never heard of a morphine pump?!
I take biologics and occasionally a pain pill here or there, but I have tried to stay away form the pain pills because I feel like I cannot function like my normal self.... does the morphine pump have that effect?
How are you today? I thought I'd drop in to revive this older discussion.
How do you manage your chronic pain? Have you found a particular medicine, technique, or alternative medicine or treatment that helps you?

I use buprenorphine and have a spine stimulator but still I struggle with my chronic pain. Its a long going process for me and I often feel like giving up nothing really seems to help
@Courtney_J Hello, am m69 with spinal stenosis, bad neuropathy in feet! Can’t walk 100 feet before sitting! Back stimulation not working! Can’t get pain pills! Been experiencing using dmso, cbd gel, magnesium! Rub on feet! Seems to help! I also take 10 grams of kratom! Good for pain and depression! Also Tk lot of supplements!
Yes I agree. Im on morphine and Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen and yours as well. I have some others also. If I want to work in the back yard, I am sleep mode if I set down. The next morning and at night is paying with great pain. Its a hard road in many ways. We have to keep going best as we can. Have a smile and good day to you. I have the stimulator too.
@MountainMan my doctor will not give pain medication! Back stimulation doesn’t work! Medical marijuana doesn’t work! Kratom helps some! Good for depression!
@Wilcys sorry to hear. I have a good pain management doctor. Maybe check around or a different doc? Keep trying.
@MountainMan am 69 and can’t get pain medication so I’m stuck at home! Tried shots etc!
@Wilcys are you given medication?
