I have intercostal neuritis with a spinal cord stimulator. I started taking oxycodone about 4 years ago. Started at 5mg, a yr later 10mg, a year later 15mg. The 15 mg has barely been working for the past year but the doctor says he can't give me stronger because 15mg is the strongest I can take for my height and weight. 140 lbs 5'5". I'm in horrendous pain and can barely raise my 3 kids or do normal daily activities. Why do doctors let me just suffer? I don't understand why they won't give me something to help lessen the pain. Do they not believe me or think I'm abusing the drugs? I have an appointment with a pain management place next week so I am hoping and praying that this doctor will have mercy on me and give me something so I can live my life again.
