I am a 35 yr. old male that has had back problems for 5+ years. I was working for a beer distributing company 5 years ago and herniated L5/S1 so bad that I couldn't even walk. I was basically flat on my back for 1 week until my surgery day. I had a laminectomy/discectomy and did not return to the same job in fear that I would destroy my back. After I healed I was great. Fast forward 1 year and I am doing great. On a beautiful day a friend and I went for a motorcycle ride, when I was hit on the frwy. by a car that wasn't paying attention and texting of all things (I was doing 75mph). I hit the ground at an estimated 90+ mph when ejected from my bike. I walked away, but not without reinjuring L5/S1, AGAIN!. Now i have a 6.8mm herniation and a tear in my disc and the insurance company is jerking me around after 2 yrs. I have been on Norco 10/325 - 6 X a day, Soma 350mg - 3 X a day, Diclofenac 50mg - 2 X a day, for 2 yrs, plus I have been through the drugs like Lyrica, Cymbalta, Nurotin, and so on. I am at a constant 7-8 pain with every now and then a good day would be a 5. My PM Dr, put me on MS Contin 15mg - 2 X a day, and I didn't even notice a difference. What do I have to do to get my PM to understand that even taking as much Norco, Soma, and Diclofenac a month it just doesn't work? I understand the DEA and all of the dangers related to other meds, but I just want to feel as normal as possible. PLEASE HELP.
