hello to all,i've been in pm for awhile now(6 mo)had 2 leavel neck surgery in april 08 and a lam on may 08.neck was doing ok (some pain) but my back never got better.have had 4 shots on my neck and thought it was getting better.2 shots on my back only with little relief.anyway about 2 mo ago i slip outside on ice.didn't fall down but kept moving my feet real fast for i woundn't fall.now my neck hurts like it did before surgery and arm also is starting to hurt and i beginng to drop things again.my back hurt worse then it did before.going to call the dr tomorrow and see about getting and mri.i take 4 10\325 a day.it seems like after i take my pain meds it only works about 3 hours then the pain starts coming back.would you think i need the longer acting meds?my backs been bad since 1990.i know i have some bad disks in my neck and back.


  • I hope you review your meds with your Dr and let him know the pain comes on again after 3 hours of taking the med. I'm on extended relief med that covers pain while asleep and when I wake up I'm covered. I had to get an increase because I felt they weren't covering the pain and when I asked it was increased. The MRI should show if things are still ok after your fall. I hope it goes well at your Drs appointment. Take care. Charry
