OH Lord, I wish I had a pain pill to take right now! My doc doesn't believe in them.
I had an EMG a couple of months ago and it was easy as pie...they said that the muscles in my back were "firing" all the time...never at rest. It also showed permanent nerve damage on the left side... I take the Oxycodone 30 mg. as well as Methadone 120 mg. a day... I tried to change to the Morphine but had to go back to the Methadone after only one week...the Oxycodone 30 mg. is wonderful, I like it because it has no Tylenol and doesn't upset my stomach. But I wouldn't drink alcohol with these meds, they are pretty strong. Maybe one drink would be ok... and I would def. take a stool softener daily to keep the constipation away...
Good Luck to ya....
