I am off all narcotic pain medications and my doctor and I are looking into other treatments. PT isn't working, but I'm still working hard at it. We are also considering lyrica or low-dose methodone. The doctor said I can increase the dose of magnesium to 400mg, one in the am and one in the pm as it hasn't worked yet. Anyone get any relief???
My knowledge of magnesium is it will help cramping type pain. I recommend you try the Lyrica as it is non narcotic and works great for some with neuropathic type pain. Methadone is another opiate which means more narcotics. There are other non narcotic pain relievers depending on the cause of your pain such as Cymbalta, also for neuropathic pain and non steroidal anti inflammatories (NSAIDs) for inflammation and pain. Really depends on the source.
