Default prayer req

i have been having major shoulder issues for the last 6 weeks, so bad i cant sleep. literally might get an hour or two a night. iv been to the VA for it twice for it. they have done nothing other than give me pain pills, and muscle relaxers that dont even "take the edge off." so this is a three part prayer request. first i would like you to pray that the VA gets off there (word i cant use) and actualy trys to figure out what is wrong with my shoulder. second that my shoulder starts feeling better. and third that all the morons out there would stop wanting government health care, cause really its a joke. i really need to get some sleep. im so aggravated about it i just unloaded a profanity laced gripe fest about it on my FB page.

I can"t say I understand because I don't, probably the frustation is as bad as the actual pain.
At some churches, mine included, you can go forward and be prayed over
for healing. It's worth a shot but when I go forward it never happens instantly there is usually a time frame, which I don't like, til it happens.
If you have tried all else go to the Great Physician, nothing to lose but the pain.
In the meanwhile I will continue to pray for you all day long til I hear different for you Hunt.

Prayers sent brother
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!

just got phone call from the VA. the orthopedic clinic finally got my referral sent to them. they can see me in another 3 weeks. i practically begged them to see me sooner. told them that i wasent even able to sleep because of this. they told me there was noting they could do to speed it up. i asked them if i could sit in there waiting room in hopes that someone no showed for an apt so i could take there time slot. was told NO "we are not that busy so that plan would not work for you". to say i went ballistic would be an understatement. so again another profanity laced post on face book. i am fighting mad.

thanks for the prayers guys. i really am in need of them.

Have you tried like the over the counter joint meds like osteo biflex or the cheaper gluecostamine condroytin pills, "spelling not right" wife still takes them and will swear by them for joint issues.
I fell for ya, I know how it is. I have been dealing with migraine headaches since my multiple skull fracture back in 2001.

Hunt, I hope you can find some relief. Just to share your pain some: After my pool accident I went 30 years in pain before having neck surgery. Well it didn't work as the pain is pretty nasty. On bad days it feels like someone is slowly driving a railroad spike through my back between the neck and right shoulder blade then blowing out my forehead. On good days just pain. I sleep 2-4 hours at best. Pain medicine is the only way I get through the really bad times so I wouldn't fight taking them when you need to. There are medicines that go after the nerve endings and shots that will give you several months of decent pain relief. The shots are not fun but they do work for a few months. I put in a hot tub to help with pain and to keep the muscles loose, helps a little. One thing that does work is a hot steam sauna. Find one somewhere and sit it for 45 minutes at 150-165* with lots of water on the rocks and you will get some decent relief. Again these are trial by need methods for me and maybe help you with some ideas for long term pain management. For those who never experience major pain issues feel blessed, for those of us that deal with it everyday, we have to learn to deal with it. I have learned to limit my activities on the bad days and just know there will be a better day ahead to do what I need to do. Best wishes to you Hunt NH.
