I am taking oxycontin, oxycodone, cymbalta, lyrica, and now vistaril. Does anyone know what the vistaril will do for my pain? What I found about Vistaril is that it's an antihistamine? My chronic pain seems to worsen, doctors can't tell me what's wrong with me. I've gone through physical therapy,trigger point shots, epidurals, nerve blocks,cervical fusion surgery, and now suffer from edema. My entire body hurts and I've had SERIOUS weight gain. I'm at the end of my rope trying to get someone to find out what's wrong and fix it! Thank you for any assistance and help you can offer. Much appreciated!

Hi everyone, Thank you for letting me join your group. My name is Mary, (Mary1016), the major illnesses I suffer with is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/RSD, small fiber peripheral neuropathy diagnosed with biopsy two weeks ago. I was told the neuropathy was already severe and the thing to do now is get me to a neurologist that specializes in pain medicine. Couldn't get an appointment until November 4th and am having great difficulty waiting. I'm going for another ketamine treatment this Sunday October 2nd. I was told by Columbia University after a failed lidocaine infusion, to go back to the ketamine doctor even though it made me start peeing blood. I don't have a lot of information on sfn. I want to basically know how long somebody usually lives when the Polyneuropaypthy is severe already. When my doctor gave me the results he hugged me for a long few minutes and told me basically not to loose my faith in God and to promise I won't take my life. I made those promises but I need to know how much worse this can possibly get and how long do people usually have to suffer. Thank you for taking the time to read:-)
Taking 150mg Effexor and 80mg OxyContin per day for over 8 years. Prescribed for ptsd while on active duty. Kept it going after retirement but I need to get off both. I want to feel myself again. I have started doing it on Effexor and this weekend I'm starting down on the OxyContin. Welcome to my hell.
I have been taking oxycontin for break through back pain for 15+ yrs. I currently take 90 mg of morphine sulfate ER three times per day to alleviate the pain caused by multiple back surgeries due to spinal stenosis from disc disease and spondylolisthesis. Two yrs ago I suffered multiple fractures with implanted hardware that broke through previous fusions and into my sacral joints. This resulted in two major surgeries, which required fusing my SI joints and hardware & fusions from S2 up through T12. I was prescribed Cymbalta for neuropathic pain over 10 yrs ago. So now I'm taking oxycodone with Cymbalta, which is highly dangerous because BOTH can cause hypertensive crisis when taken individually.
