    Yes, now asap your body is telling that something is wrong. Do not mess with your well being. You could end a disabled and unhappy person. You have one body, you have an opportunity to keep yourself in good health before things get out of hand. You would not have reached out via this web site unless you were aware that your body is in trouble! Get going and fight for your well being. My best wishes are with you and for some reason I feel like I have to say you need to find the adult in you. Come on get going and get real! Good luck and I am sending a hug your way. 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀💐

    Well pain is your body's way of telling you that something is wrong so it's time you pay attention. Go see your doctor.

      In today's world they are not likely to give you opiates if that's what you're looking for. They may prescribe something non-narcotic for you. But you would be just as well using something like ibuprofen 800 milligram which you can get over the counter. I know no doctor is going to automatically prescribe you opiates for pain on the first apt. In today's environment the idea is to try every thing 1st before going the opiate route. And if opiates are determined as the only option or the last resort then they would usually refer you to a pain management doctor. But with that you're looking at a year away probably. In the meantime you'll probably be given things like Lyrica for example which is a Gabapentin, or other types of non opiate pain killers.

      Well I really don't know I'll never taken it. I assume it works right away. It sounds like your real anxious to take something for the pain. You might very well be a good candidate for an epidural injection. A special doctor does those. They have mixed results. I got one that took all my pain away for nine months. But since then I get different percentages of pain relief. I've been in pain for 12 years. I really hope you get relief soon.
