Hi, any advice or opinions will be gladly received.
My MRI scan came back yesterday and I have two prolapsed disks my Dr said L4/L5 and another one in my tail bone area.... i can't remember the code it was S something I think
Anyway, each morning I'm waking g up between 4.30 - 6.30 in absolute agony, takes a minimum of 45 minute's to get out of bed. Sometimes the pain is just in hips or pelvis or both but most the time it's back hips and pelvis. .... Each morning I'm crying!
I've been prescribed Tramadol 50mg 1 or 2 up to 4 times a day, gabapentin 600mg 1 tab 3 or 4 times a day and diazepam 5mg 1 up to three time day.
None if this was helping with the morning issues so Dr prescribed me Zomorph 30mg... slow releasing morphine ...to take in the evening (Tramadol not allowed in evening nnow)
This didn't help either
Yesterday he increased my gabapentin to 1200mg at night to take wirh the zomorph.
I've woken up this morning with no luck, still in cchronic pain and crying.
It's really getting me down and can honestly see me going on happy pills if this chronic morning pain isn't resolved soon.
I'm seeing my specialist in two weeks but don't think I can be like this much longer.
It's draining and soul destroying
