How others deal with chronic pain? What medications do you use?
I have had chronic pain for many years. Im in my early 30's and was in a car accident which crushed my spine, fractured my lower back (I have herniated discs) and as a result of my lower back, I have peripheral neuropathy.
I coped quite well for the first few years, but now the pain has affected my mental health and lifestyle.
My doctor put me on Mersyndol forte 2 years ago and it didnt really relieve the pain at all.
Only recently I was put on neurontin for my neuropathy which takes the pain down in my feet to a point of tolarance.
Very recently I explained to my doctor that I wasnt dealing with the pain anymore and I needed to be put on proper medication.
He gave me Norspan 10 patches which make me feel really sick but doesnt take the pain down at all, its just all side effects really.
Im looking for people who have similar chronic pain to mine and asking advice on what types of medications they take and what sort of things they do to help the pain. Ive done physio alot and started yoga but I find even after light excersize it makes my back alot worse instead of better so Ive been a little nervous to attempt it again.
Any advice would be so much appreciated.
