I get massages but they don't do the trick anymore. Has anyone else ever tried the path while preg? I dont feel like I can hardly funcation. I told my doc about my sever pain but he just said welcome to being preg. Men just dont understand anything, I swear...

  • mama....from someone who has dealt with severe pain her whole life...get OFF those patches. Pain meds hit the same receptors as heroin....ask your doc abpout Suboxone. It is a pain blocker and also helps to get off the pain meds...please as I said I have been it for your baby. if you want, let me know what state you are in and I can refer you to an addictionologisyt(only because they have to perscribe it). (hugs) there is relief hang in there, for you and your baby.
