Any good tips for managing with chronic pain? I have a re-herniation and scar tissue at L5/S1 as well as issues with my SI joints. I have to work half days as I can't sit all day. This has been going on over a year and I am miserable.I have had 7 injections since last December and none have helped. Any tips on what you do to get you through the pain? I've tried ice,heat,rest,etc. If I have my fentanyl patch on and percocet going and I'm laying on my right side with heat I'm not bad but I can't live my life like that.
