Melissa here, 2 years dealing with cervical, thoracic, and lumbar herniations. The worst are in my thoracic spine and worsening. I am 36 years old and have basically been told youre gonna have pain the rest of your life and to deal with it. I was a registered nurse and worked in a crazy ED when this all came about, i would like to know if anyone can provide any help with some things i can do. Im at a standstill and dont know what to do. I cannot do ADLS or any play activities with my children due to the pain and wow the depression. I just changed family doctors and hope for insight from him. I also have spondolythesis, numbness in my right and left arms also in my legs. Recently started having electric shock feelings in my mid back, have know idea what that is! I take hydrocodone 5mg every 6 hrs, ultram 50mg every 6 hrs, valium 5mg every 8 hrs for my back.
