Good Morning im new here but this is my issue.I'm in severe pain every day from Sciatica which effects my whole left side lower back nd neck as well. I was in a accident 4 years ago when a teenager with his buddies hit my explorer i just got it , i did;nt even get a chance to put insurance on it , it still had the old owners plate on it. I was going around the block yo get my mail from my old apt. Well he hit me 75 miles i was going thru the stop sogn after waiting the normal count. I was put into a huge postall truck, tore off a fire hydrant and the front porch of a hjouse, i went to trauma for 19 hours, i was 6 months pregnant at the time there concern as mine was for the baby, which she turned upside down during the crash. My water dripped out slowly and i was at the hospital a lot at the end of the pregnancy and ended in a C-Section. After delivery i could'nt walk barely for days the morphine drip was a joke. I now have sever sciatica and deteareation of the lower lumbar and neck.I was given Norco Ms Contin, Neurotin and Xxnax plus Soma and Maxzide for my high blood pressure which i got. I lost 100 pounds in 4 years from 255 now 155. Im very dwpressed some days im just bed ridden and i cry alot as im also going thru ther change of life. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I was diagnosed with Dysthymic disorder which is life long depression and my doc gave me prozac 20mg and increased it to 40mg it isnt working at all on me. Someone suggested i take cymbalta 30mg, any help would be appreciated.
