Had existing back injury from years of mistreating it and several auto accidents when I was younger, then last x-mas I slipped in the entryway of our home coming in out of the rain and that set off what has now been almost a year of off and on pain. In June I had an MRI which revealed DDD at L4-L5 and again at L5-S1 where the disc herniation is causing mild indentation of the thecal sac. Doctor has been giving me fifty, 5/325 norcos a month for the pain which has been just about right to let me get on with my life somewhat on the bad days. That is up until about two weeks ago. Maybe it was the long car ride I had to endure at work that week, followed by camping trip labor day weekend, but things have not been good on the pain front. Pain has been accompanied by a continuing buzzing tingling sensation in my right hip and leg which is driving me nuts. Can't sleep at night, can't get comfortable during the day. I just had my pain med refill roughly 14 days ago, and as of today I have only 3 left. So off to my doctor I go again today, to see what can be done if anything. My only hesitation was my doctor had me sign a pain medication waiver stating that I would not ask for early refills or ever claim I lost my meds, etc., which now makes me feel uncomfortable going in and telling him I pretty much burned through my 30 day supply in half that time. But it honestly has been hell the last week or two and I cannot go on like this for too much longer without my mood beginning to suffer. In fact yesterday while out with the wife doing some early recon for halloween costumes my leg began bothering me pretty bad which resulted in me becoming very grumpy. I guess the best I can hope for is that my doctor see that I am honestly in discomfort and pain and will work with me to find some sort of relief.
