Hello, Kathy here, I take (along with other meds) neurontin which is very helpful for my fybro. Its amazed me how well it works,, I take 300 to 600 mg 3xday.
I really dont understand why a doctor would tell you narcotic will not help your pain, thats simply not true, you need to find a Pain Management Doctor, or Clinic and take your records with you, your disc pain alone is enough for you to be treated with something more that darvocet, which to me is like taking regular tylenol, its nothing. Vicodin is a little better. Even though you are alergic to perc's there are many other meds out there you can try. As far a worrying about becoming addicted, you will become dependent possibly on the meds, but addiction is a word we try not to use, I used that word while trying to explain something to someone,and was reminded (and I was glad to be reminded) the word dependent is not as explosive a word as addiction.
If you want a good quality of life for yourself and your baby girl, you must feel as good as you possibly can, if that includes narcotic meds, its so worth it.
Take care and good luck
