After seeing a Chiropractor last month, I found out the reason for my acute back pain is 3 subuxulations (misalignments) in my spine along with a misalignment of the hip. Every since I was very young I would suffer from back pain and stiffness which goes hand in hand with the Chiropractor telling me I have lost 40% of my health from pinched nerves. I am at the point where I want to jump out of my own skin some times. My friend told me to take one of his pain killers, called an Percocet, which relieved everything completely. I asked him if I could ask any doctor for them and he said no I'd get flagged for drug abuse since I'm 20- which I then learned about the fact its related to heroin. At this point I need something for the pain besides fish oil. How do I approach this subject with the doctor? Is there anything else I can take besides this?

Yes, there are numerous things you can do for your back pain. First and foremost, I would get a good doctor maybe a pain management doctor. Then I would go from there. I have never personally taken percocet, therefore I cannot speak intelligently about it. There are many things you can do for your back. Whom have you seen in the past? How did they determine your pain? As far as your doctor red flagging you I would not think or should I say in my state (Texas) doctors do not get flagged for legitimate pain meds. That is a crock! I am so tired of hearing that. Those people should be fined for not helping people with real pain... I am so sorry you have been suffering for so long and I wish you luck in finding a good doctor. Once you do, stick with them thru thick and thin... They are hard to come by... Kim

I use to take percocets. They are an opiate. oxy's, morphine, percocets are all opiates.If U are in extreme severe pain U need to go somewhere and get something.;but U are young. Check it out; or I suggest to try aleve that really works good.Aleve is hard on your stomach and bad for your liver, but every med is bad for U.Pinched nerves are so painful. I suffer everyday. U need to get some desperate help. If I were I would go try different drs. I went through quite a few drs before I could fine the right one who really cared. Pain clinics in mn do not help. If U go to a pain clinic they will have U sign a contract and they may not help U and then U have to get out of it. I would check out a reg. dr. for now. I go to a reg. dr. Find and older dr. they are more understanding and old fashion. The younger generation dont seem to know much. Loopi
