Just Keeping Me Comfortable.
Before I got my poor prognosis, and now they give me ANYTHING I ask for, to keep me comfortable, I went through what you are going through.
But, I got my neuro to do the scripts for hydrocodone. He is the one who understands the pain that goes along with CIDP.
I also get steroid shots into my ankles, knees, and hips with my Rheumatologist, which helps alot.
And now the pain management doctor is putting a steroid into my spine, (it is done in a surgical unit), which helps with back pain.
Perhaps you should ask him/her?
