Hi everyone I am 33 years old, mother of 3 wonderful children. I have been dealing with chronic pain for almost 7 years, and to be honest it wears a person down.
I have congenital spinal stenosis in my lumbar and cervical, osteoarthritis in my lower back, bulging disc L3-L4, herniated L4-L5, nerve impingement, also bulging C4-C5 in cervical.
I am currently taking celebrex, tramadol, vicodin, & Cyclobenzaprine which I dont take unless I really need to. But basically with all of this it only takes a little bit of the edge off. My doctor has decided to send me to a spinal specialist for my cervical and lumbar, which I think is a great idea since I am getting completely tired of being in pain and my stomach is not handling the prescriptions that well anymore.
