i am currently riddled with back pain and take 3 x 900gms of gabapentin daily and 150gms dihydrocodeine daily
Well, first off, I'd like to know the source of your back pain. Otherwise, my back pain is from degenerative disc disease and bulging discs as well as arthritis and scoliosis.
I went to a pain doctor who did a series of (painless) injections in my back that has helped me to stand up straight with no pain and I can walk now without pain till my knees give in. They are due for injections next. My doctor is wonderful and so are his nurses.
He also has an IDD machine which is a computerized traction machine that I used back in 2006 that did wonders for my back. It stretched my spine out so my discs had room to grow and cushion right. And it lasted a long time. I need to go back to it but Medicare won't pay for it. I am going to check if my supplemental insurance would pay for some of it.
Find a good pain care center and talk to the doctor and find out what they can do for you.
