Okay so right now for some reason my rhuemy decided to down my pain meds of percocet to 5/325, 150 2x's for lyrica a day, and 30 mgs of cymbalta. And for breakthru pain 50 mgrs of tramadol.
It's not getting it at all. I have to take at least 2 percets and more tramadol and I'm still in pain. I don't know what the next level is but I do believe I am there. I have been taking pain medication for the last 10 years. No one knew what was wrong with my neck for the last 8.5 years. I was give PT, and all kinds of meds, tylenol 3, ibuprophen 800 mgs, flexeril 10 mgs, soma, vicodin, percocet 1050/750 (not quite sure of the numbers but it was a much higher dose) and a patch for my back which didn't do anything (Lidocaine). My doctor wants me to exercise more and I try to explain to her withouth sending myself into a flair which I can no longer control with med's I just don't see me running a marathon. Sometimes I feel like I should look for another rhuemy. What do you guys think? I do try hot showers and biofreeze too, but that only helps so much. No I'm getting migranes and I have to see a nuerologist on Thursday.
Any advice would be much appriciated
