I was diagnosed with a foraminal disc protrusion on my c6 c7 after an MRi in December before that I was told I just had a neck sprain. I was on Gapabentin and Norco just the 5/325 up until a couple months ago the Norco was helping but not enough and the doctor didn't want me taking more than 3 a day. Throughout the whole time Ive been having horrible headaches and a stabbing feeling on my shoulder and my upper traps even sometimes around my ribs were it hurt if I sneezed or took a deep breath. The headaches though were a killer I was having them constantly. About a month ago the doctor put me on nucynta and off of Norco but the nucynta did nothing the pain was getting worse a tightness and spasming severe also now I'm getting muscle twitches on my left hand my thumb and index finger along with twitches on my forearm. My hands are also going numb especially when I'm jogging or holding something. So he switched me to Klonopin the other day and it just floored me made me so drowsy I couldn't function and it did nothing for my pain or headaches. I understand he is trying to get me off of narcotics but at least I could function on them now I'm in constant pain I'm waiting for a prescription of Ultracet he want to see if that will work but I'm just at my wits end I feel like I'm getting worse and this muscle twitching is something I've never had before.
