Please Help!!

I have been seeing my pain management doctor for a while now. I started off taking Hydrocodone, now I am on Roxicodone. I had my appointment for refill today, and he came in, refilled my medication, and dropped me. I had been in so much pain the previous month, that I ran out of my meds a week early. The problem is, is that after I ran out of my Roxicodone, I had a few Hydrocodone left over and took some of those. Needless to say, he found the Hydrocodone in my system......so he dropped me. Now I don't know what on Earth to do! He refilled my medication for one more month, but now I have to find another doctor. I need advice from someone who has been in my position at one point in time on where to go from here. Am I going to be able to be accepted by another pain doc now that I messed this up??? And if so, are they going to be willing to help me as much as he did??? Please HELP!!!! Thank you!

Natural remedies for sciatica??

I've never experienced sciatic pain, but my dad sometimes has problems with it. As far as I know, he doesn't take any medication for it - which is probably good, since he already suffers from asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, etc. Anyway, I just found this page about natural sciatica remedies, and I was thinking of telling him about it: http://www.sciatica101.com/treatments/natural/natural-ways-to-sciatica-relief.html Have you tried any of these remedies, and if so, have you had any successes with them?

Headache Causes?

One thing I've heard about chronic pain conditions is that often, doctors really can't tell you what's causing them. Sometimes, there is a clear-cut answer - a condition they can point to as the culprit - but it's incredibly common to have the doctors say they can't really help you. I imagine that must be infuriating, especially if the symptomatic medicines don't help. Have any of you dealt with a chronic pain condition? If so, were you able to find a clear root cause?

What do you do about back pain?

I just read a statistic from a USA Today article that says approximately 80% of Americans will experience lower back pain in their lifetime. That's incredibly high - especially seeing as how back pain can be crippling. The cost of dealing with this (both medical costs and time off work) adds up to $50 billion annually. That's...kind of insane. I've never experienced crippling back pain, although there have definitely been times when I've been highly uncomfortable and in moderate pain. (In fact, I'm squirming uncomfortably as I write this.) I've been around people who can't even get up because they're hurting so badly, so I know the effects it can have. Have any of you dealt with back pain? Did you find out what was causing it, and how did/do you deal with it?

Advice for Relaxing Tension in the Jaw?

I don't know if it can actually be called TMJ, but I know I've had jaw pain due to stress. I think it's common for people to clench their jaws when there's tension, and doing that all the time can certainly lead to jaw pain. I've been making a conscious effort to relax my jaw, and it certainly helps. Anyone else?

Good remedies for headaches/migraines?

Being a chronic migraine sufferer means that this is one topic I can never get enough of. Sometimes I'll get headaches three or four times a week, and it can be exhausting - especially since I'm reluctant to take too much ibuprofen. So - does anybody know any good natural remedies for headaches? What do you do when you get one?
