I was not sure where to put this, But I have MS, IM currently on Rebif for it..

Anyway Ive been having Chronic pain in my knees and upper legs. My Neuro said it was from the M.S, prescribed me Neuronin, I couldn't handle it, made me SICK! plus it did nothing for the pain.

Second note I had 10mgs of Percocet for my torn rotator cuff, been on it for a while now. Anyway, due to my Legs pains that I can't deal with I was taking (2) 10mg Percocets every 4-5 (roughly 60mgs in a 24hour period.) hours, which worked great, I could function fine.

I got referred to a Pain Management DR, just had my appointment on 8/10. I told him the dosage of the Oxycodone I was taken. Anyway He Prescribed me Lyrica, Been taking it before bedtime, but since I suffer from Panic Attacks since I started the Lyrica and my Panic attacks has worsened (Im taking more Xanax daily than I have been) (is that possible) Plus it didn't help a bit pain wise. He also gave me Butrans Patches 10mcgs/hour and 5mg of oxycodone for breakthrough pain, Im allowed to take those Max 5 per day.

Problem right now is I can't get these patches until monday 8/15 so Im dying in pain, 5mgs does nothing for me, I explained this to the nurse she told me to deal with.

ANyone here deal with anything similar? Or ever use these patches? I don't have much faith in them at all.

Im reposting this in the Chronic Pain forum also...

Advice, suggestions, personal experience would be great.

thanks all.

Hi to everyone...I'm new here, have had MS for 20 some years. I also have leg aches caused by spasms. My Neuro. prescribed THC and it really works wonders. I am sorry if some people don't understand the relief it brings. It enables me to sleep. Also it has greatly helped my libido. I actually can feel and enjoy sex again. I am in a much better mood too. I have had no adverse side effects. Just sayin' it works for me.
