Advice to consult Pain management Clinic

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for the query at HealthcareMagic,

I have read your history and I understand your concern. It is important to receive adequate treatment for pain management.

However Talwin/naloxone is a narcotic and controlled medication. It cannot be prescribed without completely evaluating the need for such strong pain medication . Moreover, your general health also need to be assessed before starting on such medication.

I recommend that you consult a pain management center for further evaluation and treatment.

There are certain tips you can follow to reduce pain
-Rest adequately, avoid activities that worsen pain
-Heat therapy at the affected area can reduce pain and muscle tension
-Over the counter Ibuprofen 400 mg (up to 4 times daily after food) if not allergic, additionally can be used to control the pain.

Hope I was able to answer your question
Please feel free to address any more concerns

Hi, my urine flow recently became completely blocked. The Urologist put me on Jalyn for 6 days. When that didn t work he wants to do a transurethral microwave thermotherapy. Do you think that is enough time to see if a drug works and does the microwave procedure have a good record for results. Thanks

About a week and a half ago i slipped and fell down hard wood stairs, my lower back smacked against 3 or 4 of the steps as i went down, Most of the pain has subisded except for one spot in the center of my lower back and I have been having severe headaches since the fall. Also I should mention that when I was a young teenager I broke my L3 vertabrae in three spots. Is it normal for this pain to be lingering like this? Nothing helps, I have tried ice and heat therapy, massage, Advil, and Tylenol.
