I am new to the forum and already learning much from all the members. I am a 47 yr old male that has had 5 back surgeries over the last 15 years. Two on my L5-S1 including a fusion and fused on my C5-T1. The thing that is really killing me now is facet joint pain from arthritis in my neck. Brutal. Pain everyday. I am having frequent injections and RF ablations every 6 months. Still suffering after that. Additionally I am on three medications for my pain: Cymbalta, Celebrex, and recently added Gabapentin. I also am taking Norco about every day.
My first question to this great community, has anyone been on this combination of drugs? I feel like I am taking a bunch of meds but at the end of the day still having to take pain killers. The question in my head is how bad would it be without some of these meds or is it really making a difference? I would love to hear any comments! Thanks for having me!
