I am currently taking 10mg/Hydrocodone along with other pain meds for my neck/arm pain. NS told me I was a canidate for surgery but that he thought my DDD/stenosis, hadn't progressed enough to perform surgery. I am currently involved in PT. I currently work for a college and am near sleep at my desk from the medicine. Any tips besides taking meds with food that would decrease my sleepiness at work. Its not bad enough I'm still in pain, but I'm almost sleeping at my desk after I take a pain pill. Any suggestions....Thanks, Hope everyone has a happy holiday season!
