I hope someone/ anyone can help me - I have been suffering from chronic back/sciatica pain for over 2 years now - I had a spinal fusion in January but I still have leg pain and numbness in my heel that hurts and drives me crazy. As of March I was taken off of all narcotic pain meds (Oxycontin) and my Dr. has put me on a form of Tramadol - it is a 24 hour time release pill that I take each morning with 2 Tylenol the problem is it never really takes the pain away and I am taking on average 4-6 tylenol a day, it also makes it next to impossible to sleep so now I have started taking Gravol each night to get to sleep - I also have to take medications for heartburn I think because of all the anti-inflmmatories I took for 2 years.
I am sseing my Doctor on Monday and I was going to ask him for medicinal marijuana - the problem is I don't smoke so I would need a pill format. I wanted to know if anyone has tried using this for nerve pain and if it helps.
And if not that does anyone have any advice as to what I should be trying - I am so tired of not feeling well.
