Back Pain

Pain Management.
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Like so many with MM, pain is a major symptom. My husband is on Tramadol (an opiod) and Tylenol. Tylenol causes his kidney function numbers to rise, so he's hesitant to use this.

So none of these choices is good. My question is: What are others doing for pain management? Also, has anyone had accupuncture, and if so, did… read more
