I've had a sciatica episode for about ten days and the pain was unimaginable. I was given hyromorphone, naproxen, advil, flexior, and what not...sure the hydromorphone helped the pain but it made me nauseous and didn't feel right. Then I found an old bottle of 222 pills (aspirin+codeine) in my drawer, and that has been thoroughly amazing. I am almost like new. I take every six hours or so 2 pills and have zero pain and I feel completely normal. I'm in canada so we can buy those over the counter, which in the USA you can't. So perhaps you can get someone to bring you a bottle. I am beside myself with happiness.
