WHEN DOCTORS WON'T TREAT A PERSON IN PAIN!!

I DON'T THINK ANYONE COULD HAVE WORSE CHRONIC PAIN THAN I DO AND HAVE GRADUALLY GOT WORSE SINCE JUNE 28 1999.
I GOT A SORE SPOT LIKE A GLAND UNDER MY LEFT ARM,WENT TO THE DOCTOR AFTER XRAY,HE SAID I HAD A SPOT ON MY LEFT LUNG.TOLD ME I HAD SMOKED SO LONG ,PROBABLY HAD CANCER. I DID NOT GET A SECOND OPINION. HE REMOVED THE BENIGN SPOT,WHICH WAS AN OLD PNEUMONIA SCAR.WITHIN 2 WEEKS,STARTED HAVING PAINS UNDER LEFT BREAST.WENT TO ANOTHER DOCTOR THAT DONE GANGLIONECTOMIES T-4 THROUGH T-8,AND JUST ABOUT DESTROYED MY LIFE,AS IT WAS..
NOW ABOUT 13 YEARS LATER,I AM PRETTY MUCH DISABLED FROM ALL THE PILLS ETC THAT HAVE REALLY MESSED UP MY BOWELS..I HAVE BEEN TO SO MANY DOCTORS AND NONE OF THEM KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH ME. MY STOMACH LOOKS LIKE I AM 9 MONTHS PREGNANT AND SUCH A RAW SORE PRESSURE UNDER MY LEFT BREAST, IT CUTS MY OXYGEN, AND I AM ON OXYGEN..HAVE TO GASP TO GET MY BREATH. I AM 74 YEARS OLD,AND THEY JUST WON'T DO ANYTHING TO HELP ME AT ALL. THEY JUST WANT TO GIVE ME PILLS.I HAVE TO TAKE MAGNESIA EVERYDAY OR THE PRESSURE IS SO HARD UNDER MY RIBS, CAN HARDLY BREATHE..

I CAN'T TAKE A BATH OR SOAK IN A TUB OR I CAN'T GET OUT. I SPONGE BATHE. I FEEL AS THOUGH I HAVE BEEN BURNED INTERNALLY AND EXTERNALLY,AND THEN SAND PAPER RUBBED OVER ME. THIS NEVER STOPS 24/7. THESE DOCTORS HERE JUST WANT TO PUSH PILLS THAT DON'T HELP. I AM ON NORCO RIGHT NOW,AS I NEED SOMETHING. I AM ALLERGIC TO TOO MANY OTHER MEDS.

THIS IS NOT ALL I HAVE WRONG,BUT IF YOU KNOW OF ANY SOLUTION,PLEASE HELP ME WITH INFO...I DO HAVE 152 TITANIUM STAPLES IN MY LUNG ,WHICH I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE PROBLEM WAS, BUT DOCS SAY NO. BUT THEN,I KNOW WHEN THEY DON'T WANT TO MESS WITH SOMEONE. PLEASE INFO!!!
THANKS FOR ANY RESPONSE OR SOLUTION :)

I have had the same problem. I am on a ton of medications for multiple chronic illnesses, and my fibromyalgia is a beast! One of the things I have alongside fibro is chronic myofascial pain. The connective tissue in muscles has formed trigger points where spasms regularly occur. Then those trigger points make more, and now I am filled with places that spasm. The constant pain is only somewhat helped with gabapentin, baclofen, and clonazepam. It at least gives me a few good days a week. The bloat is one I'm struggling with, too. I have to buy tops at the maternity department, which is a joke, as I am very...flat on top. I tried gluten-free, which didn't really help. Placing a stick-on heating pad on my stomach, and one more where each leg joins the trunk seems to help. My trigger points used to be only on my back & neck. Now they seem to have traveled to the front and interfere with digestion (at all stages). The heat seems to help relax the outer muscles so that the digestive muscles can do their job. It may not work for you, but I hope it helps.
At least you will know that someone else is running into the same side effect/symptom (whatever it is).
