is there any procedure you've tried that has made the pain tolerable? i have had a nerve block done (mid back area was injection site) which helped a bit and will be getting another soon. i do take meds for the pain, 60 mg morphine (extended release type) every 6 hrs, 50 mg of demerol 3x per day, and 1 mg. xanax 3x per day and lots of motrin. still have pain spikes that can last for hours, never cried so much in my life. also, any other meds you may have tried that brought you better relief? i was wondering about oxycontin? thanks for reading and any help.
