I was injured at work in September of 2008. I have had much pain in my lower back right side and upper buttocks. I also have a ton of sciatic pain from my buttocks down my leg to my knee. My hip and groin are also very painful.
The doctors I was seeing after the injury were presribing Norco for the pain. It was very helpful. After a few months I had to swith to percocet 10/325 two three times a day. This was very effective for my pain. My workers comp. doctor finally got me into a pain magagment doctor. He thinks I have a lumbar facet join problem. He's saying my percocet will not help for this injury. I'm really concerned because he's not gonna fill this medicine which I know works. As anyone had a facet join problem and been told that narcotic medications do not help for this injury?
Any help would be awesome and sorry about the length of this post!!!
