Hi again, everyone. I've been talking with a few people and they suggested I post my question. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do for my husbands pain? He is pretty much in constant pain from the m.s., at different levels of severity. He does take muscle relaxants, but those only do so much. His neurologist does not believe in treating pain and she did refer him to a Pain Management Spec this last year. That was a waste of time. He said to just take Tylenol, Ibuprofren...etc. We have been to literally dozens of doctors over the course of his diagnosis, even traveling to different states looking for help. Every doctor, to sum it up, says that pain medications "can be addictive", so they wont give him anything. He has been in pain for so many years, and it is just heartbreaking because I cant help him. He suffers, then we suffer because he cant do things with me or our kids, who desperately miss playing with him. Any suggestions? Feel like we're running in circles and no relief in sight.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
