Since 1994 I feel as though I have been through it all. 2 previous neck surgeries w last one being a 3 level fusion. Fast forward, numerous MRIs and CT scans, multiple diagnoses. Recent thoracic MRI shows something wrong with literally every single disc, incl 2 herniated discs. Previous lumbar MRIs and CT scans indicates 2 herniated discs. I have bilateral stenosis causing nerve pain in both legs. Have had too many epidural injections to even count since 1994. Last 3 yrs have proven more successful but still not exact science. Most have helped, some not so much. I see a "pain dr" every month for review and scripts of pain meds. Here in Michigan many narcotics are not refillable and require new paper scripts every month. These cannot be called in to pharmacist. I am currently on percocet10/325 four times day and morphine 90 mg time release once day, gabapentin 600mg three times day and cymbalta 60mg once daily. Am also a fibromyalgia sufferer.
