I am waiting to see the doctor again in two weeks. Was on opiates for 1 and 1/2 years following a failed discectomy. I stopped because I didnt want to start an uphill battle. Then I was given cymbalta, which actually worked well for the back/nerve pain/ and my arthritis but it started to cause terrible gut pain after a month. I am on lyrica now, 2 months later at 100mg I am unable to tell if it works, so clearly its not doing a good enough job.
My question really is to know if anyone has been in this position and would like to share what they did from here? Pain sucks.
