Welcome eXcelon!! Glad you have found us
I understand what you mean.. and in the end I may end up asking for pain meds also, but since I have been diagnosed all I have taken were muscle relaxers prescribed by my family doctor.. they didn't give me any relief whatsoever. Yes, I am on nothing AT ALL medication-wise because I have issues with meds and certain views (a story in itself)
BUT I will end up needing something too I am sure because things are getting bad. Till then, I will continue to use natural remedies
I have been vomiting a lot though because the pain gets so unbearable that it makes my stomach uneasy.. ugh, what to do, what to do
I do use Lidoderm Patches though and they have helped a lot to a certain degree..
I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you whether or not to just stick to the Vicodin or get something stronger.. due to the fact I don't even take anything at all so I don't know what relief is felt from the Vicodin.......
But I mainly just wanted to welcome you, sorry for rambling LOL
TAKE CARE AND STICK AROUND HERE!!!!
