PArdon my vent, rambling and just aggravated mood...
Slowed down my usage to 4 a day(220 mg), 6 was wayyy too much for my gut.No weird reactions like the indomicine, but this is getting to be ridiculous.I cannot get dose increases on my norco, or better yet something long acting to level my pain to something manageable in these torturous winter months.So I have to rely on NSAID's for further relief, which do work for my knee/feet and not so much on my back.I have been trying my best to use them sparingly, but a night like the last 2 have been hell.
I am seriously considering at the point of dumping my doctor to find one who will treat my pain better.My doctor is a nice guy and has done good by me for the most part, but he's part of a family practice in a hospital with a very anti narcotic med philosophy for the most part.I have only mustered up the courage now, because the pain is driving me ballistic.
I don't sleep, I ache all night long, and take an hour to get out of bed.I have done PT, got the MRI,X-Rays to prove I am legit and then some, I cannot do steroids and will not do them after my last reaction the price of admission to benefit ratio is not worth it.I never scam doctors, use the ER only once in the last 15 years at least, but my behavior now is driven by behavior deemed "drug seeking" when all I want is help.I am not asking for ways to find doctors, just maybe a moment of what would you do? PM clinics in my area are mostly a no go due to $$$ and preferences for ESI's.
