I am 30yrs old and was diagnosed with "moderate" scoliosis and mild degenerative disc disease in my early 20's. I am a very active person living on a farm and having a 4yr old but I am CONSTANTLY in pain. I've been to an orthopedic doc who told me I just basically had to live with the pain, I've been through physical therapy, etc. I'm not trying to sound like I am out for pain pills but my family doctor has me on Lortab 10/500s (30/month). They help don't get me wrong but is 30 pills a normal amount to give someone with the issues I have?
