im a 27 yr old male who has been experiencing pain now for a little over a year . started with the aches and pains of doing hard grunt work labor for the past 12 years . stuff i could shrug off with a pint or two and still go home and do everything i had to do . walk the dogs , vacuum etc.
i guess i joined this forum out of desperation , a pressure system is rolling through now and i can feel everybit of my injury right through my opiates.
the nerve damage has only recently been found so they tried lyrica for that along with norco 10mg (which i find to work better on me more so then any oxycodone product of equal mg)
i get about 40% relief from the norco and none from the lyrica.
i have had 3 epidural injections , put under woke up and felt like $1,000,000 for a day or two .i guess thats when the local wore off and im back to square one.
so i guess im looking for suggestions to go to my pain doctor with for either future surgeries or medication.
