... pain specialist now and i am on pain meds.What are best for my type of pain?!
Sorry to sound stupid but... What the Dr. prescribed. Whatever that even is, we don't know. One thing that really Could potentially help you would be a steroid injection, but make sure you're having it done in a hospital type setting (it's usually in the back of an office but once you walk back there it looks like a hospital). They will medicate you so you don't feel anything, and if you have sciatica and or irritatiin in the nerve root area, this can REALLY reduce your pain.
Normally, pain doctors start people out on Vicodin or Norco, but it's impossible to help you in that regard as we're not Doctors and also haven't examined you. I hope you understand and trust that your Doctor gave you what is appropriate. Now your job is to go in at the next appointment and say whether that treatment worked or if you were still in a lot of pain. Please understand that you will never have a complete absence of pain. :0( They're trying to get you to where you can function and live a healthy life again, which means reducing your pain by a large margin. Maybe you went in with pain at an 8... they want to try to get you to where your highest pain is a 3, for example. I hope this works for you and that you start feeling better soon. There's nothing worse than just living a life of constant suffering. I'm glad you finally got some help. :0) Meg
