How can I be relieved of chronic pain due to trigger points in neck and back? Or, do I have a brain tumor?

Any Doctors or Rheumotologists out there to help please?
I have lupus which makes my osteoarthritis in my neck and back worse. My Doctor told me I have malignant knots, and I was given trigger point injections in neck and back. He accidently stuck the needle in my lung, and I ended up in the hospital. (No law suit). – I have also been in physical therapy, message therapy, do yoga, and lift weights, I have been on medication to reduce inflammation and relaxe muscles. Nothing has worked. I have had this pain for 3 years straight. – I developed this problem after my husband died of cancer. Also, my aunt of 48 died after being diagnosed with 19 brain tumors. I am the same age, and I pay Kaiser $600.00 a month out of my own pocket to keep my health benefits. My Dr. visits and med’s also cost alot of money. I am going broke and my pain is a 12 on a scale of 1 – 10. – Is there a specific test I shoud ask for, or can I get rid of this problem and live a normal life. I get dizzy and see stars!

  1. You really think you’re saving money this way? Do you really think you will find a genuine doctor actually participating in THIS web site. NEXT PATIENT PLEASE!!

  2. If you are really worried about a brain tumor ask for a CT scan or an MRI. I am sure though that if the doctor suspected a brain tumor he would have tested you already.

    I am so sorry about your pain. Why don’t you see if you can go to a pain specialist in order to have the pain better controlled? While working with the pain specialist, you can still pursue other avenues of treatment, but your pain will be under control and you will be able to be more proactive in your care.

    Good luck to you.

  3. try turmeric with milk while sleeping every day plus Aaley ,sunth(Marathi word) eat it daily 10 gms directly

  4. why don’t you try a combination of meds for pain like neurontin, effexor, baclofen and Mobic. they work well together for chronic pain. if you want details you can write to me.
