I have been going to a pain clinic for over a year now, and that is because I have pain constantly too. I am on trazadone, Neurotin, and Oxycontin, and they just added Ultram Tues, for breakthrough pain, I amm considering surgery, I hope tp talk to gyn tomorrow, I will be there to take my handicapped sister. He said he will talk to me then, now I am worried about my other sister with the infection in her tubes, she may need a TAH soon. Try to look into the pain clinic, they have helped me SOME!
