I have been dealing with pain in my thorasic spine for 3 years and have had 3 mri's, epidural shots, trigger point, nerve block and nothing helps.
I am now seeing a Pain Management Doctor and have been on hydro for almost a year and it isn't working like it used to and only lasts, maybe 2 hours. I talked to the doctor about it and he said the only thing they could do was take me off the hydro for about 8 weeks and then put me back on it,,Ekkkk. I cannot go 8 weeks in this kind of pain!!
Is there other pain meds that differ from hydrocodone that would relieve my pain, or are they all opiads so therefore none would work??
