Hi! I joined this forum because my wife has debilitating back pain. Her back pain started five or six years ago and progressively worsened to the point where she lives with severe pain 24/7. She's had Epidural Shots, PT and a Radiofrequency Neurotomy procedure done. She started her journey by using Hydrocodone, kept progressively kept taking stronger pain meds and is now doing two 30 MG Morphine Sulfate every five to six hours. The morphine does help a little shortly after the tabs are taken, but it doesn't last that long.
To date, nothing has really worked and she won't consider talking to a doctor about surgery.
That's about it.
