Hi I'm new to this site. I'm a 27 year old female who's had three spinal surgeries for scoliosis. I have no long term damage and for all intents and purposes I'm am doing extremely well. I experience pain fairly infrequently but have given up the use of drug in leu of herbal medicines. My question now lies with my mother who also has SEVERE scoliosis. She has suffered for the last 40+ years and has had over 20 procedures and surgeries since then. My question is about her pain management regiment. She is currently taking Lyrica, Nucynta, Opana and Percocet simultaneously. She has nerve damage and sever pain needs but I would like to know if this is a common medication regiment? Many of these meds share similar side effects but I'm noticing she is increasingly sad, sleepy, dizzy and a load of other symptoms associated with these drugs. I'm not sure if she is on a normal pain doses or if she is taking too many narcotics with similar effects, subsequently causing heightened side effects. My mother is 65 years old and active for her level of pain but is is becoming very lagging in her will to move forward. Please HELP!!!
