Okay, I have been suffering horrible migraines for 7 1/2 months, from whiplash. I am sure you have read about
my story so I won't get into it. I am not a druggy, as none of you are, but lately my pain has gotten worse instead of better, despite all of my treatment. I hae a follow-up appointment today from the medical procedure where they burned my nerve endings. I want to ask for stronger medication, both pain and muscle relaxers.
What I am currently taking is Vicaden for the pain and Skelaxin for the muscle relaxers. What is the next step up? What are some of the pain relievers you all take? Also, what about muscle relaxers? I just need something that works to give me some relief before I lose it. Until they can figure out what is wrong.
I am hoping he (the anethesiologist) refers me to a neurosurgeon. I have a name and number of who I want to see, who happens to be a spine specialist. I think he would be the perfect dr to see in my case. I am still thinking I may have a bulging disc that just didn't show up on my MRI in March.
