I have 5 herniated disc,3 bulgging and bone spurs,I also have had a right knee replacement and a left knee that needs a scope.Both of my heels have bone spurs and I have nuromas under both feet near my toes.My left elbow needs a scope and I have arthritus threw my body.I take 5mg 500APAP of vicoden 3x a day along with 350mg of soma 3x a day.I am in pain all day and have a very hard time sleeping and the meds have peeks and valleys and sometimes don't even work.With this comb of drugs I do get some releaf but it is sort lived.My doctor is also worried about adiction but for god sake if he could only feel what I go threw in a day mabe he could find something stronger that could help with my chronic pain.
I am so sorry you are in so much pain. It sounds unbearable. Can you ask for a 50 mg (at least) duragesic patch. This will help around the clock. If u can't get that I would ask for Percocet or OxyContin. But the best would be the patch or a new doctor! Hope this helps. Take care now.
