I have suffered with upper and lower spine pain for decades due to an accident requiring fusion at C6-C7. Have degenerative discs above and below, plus very bad one at L5. Have been on many, many pain meds.
Was on Nucynta for several years, but never really did the job. Started
10mg 2X daily of Oxymorphone, but not getting any relief?? Before Nucynta, I was on high dose of Norco (Hydrocodone). Also take muscle relaxant and anti-inflammatory, plus Gabapentin. Besides my size, 6'4" and 270 lbs, I seem to have a natural tolerance of medication (disadvantage for me). I am seeing a pain specialist, and have been for twenty years now. I'm told I'm not a candidate for surgery, and am at a loss of what else I can do meds wise. Any ideas??
