I've been experiencing severe pain in my left arm and shoulder for almost 2 years. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease, herniated discs in my cervical spine and spurs C-3 thru C-7.
I've been taking Tramadol and Lyrica for sometime now. My pain got worse rather than better. I do have surgery coming up within the next month to month and a half. I had requested stronger meds last month but did not get them.
Today I called my DO and she prescribed Vicodin/Acetomenophen 5/500. So far that does help. I have 45 pills at 3x a day. I see my DO again this coming Tuesday. I'm hoping she lets me keep taking these until my surgery. What experiences have others here had in this regard?
Thanks for listening!
