Hello Kindred sprit's
I have battled low back (now knee pain as well) for years. Opioids caused more misery then they helped.
I weaned off onto Suboxone and it was cakewalk as far as the withdrawals. I've gone through detox of 400mg a day Morphine so I know withdrawals. Sub. is awesome and does help pain although not as good as other opoids. I feel if the pain gets to be too much, I'd go back on a low dose (1mg X a day) but just need to hear others expirence so maybe I can find what works best. i'm up for my, who knows maybe 40th nerve block.
They once worked well but not so much now.
I have tried accupunture with mild help, excercise, ablations well name it I most likely tried it.
My problem began with an auto accident that disturbed a "spondyloletheisis" and i had surgery to fuse L3 to sacrum. one screw broke and the pain has been tough since then.
I take aspirin, swith to motrin then aleve and take tylenol once in a while. I have tramadol but it constipates me as I use it sparenly.
Well any suggestions are welcome

This too shall pass
