So I was in a car accident back in 2007 I had a ruptured disk at L4-L5 and had a Fusion done. Since the surgery I have had numerous amounts of Physical therapy, injection, pain meds, ect. Nothing seems to help!! I am now on Percocet 10/325 2 every 4-6 hrs. The doctor did have me on Buspar to help relax me so I could sleep (did not help at all) and Hydroxazine (sp) she said that would help intesify the effects of the percocet. I have quit taking the two at this point and just continue with the percs. My problem is I can get no relief no matter what I do!! The pain pills are wearing out before it is time for the next dose, I can hardly get out of bed and when I do what ever I do I know Im gonna pay for it later that day or the next day for sure. I am unable to do any of the things that I used to do I have 4 children and I am married to a wonderful understanding man (I thank the good lord everyday for that)We are unable to be intimate any longer cause the pain is so intense in my back. I cannot play with my children all they see me is laying in my bed everyday I hate it!! Is there any other treatment options or medication options that I could discuss with my DR? She is very understanding and we have a great Patient Dr relationship. Her heart breaks for me everytime she sees me in her office! Maybe I should concider a Pain Management Dr? What are your thoughts on this? I have been unable to work since my car accident and SS has denied me several times (I am currently waiting for a hearing). I want my life back I know it will never been the same but just to be able to be out of bed for an entire day would be great!! Also what is good for relaxing and sleeping through the night? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
