Re: Should I stop Narcotic Pain meds?
did you have them read the mri to you? Mine also said I had bulging discs but when I asked them to read the whole thing it said arthritis, bone spurs and a hemangioma (which is non cancer). Arthritis is extremely painful as I have it in my neck and also in both of my knees. I take roxicodone 4 times a day and have become physically dependent on it. I am scared of this. I do not like to be dependent on meds. But when I quit taking it I have horrible withdrawls. So which is the worser of the two. I still havent decided. Sometimes my body tells me it is time for a pill before my neck pain does and that is what bothers me the most.
Also, get a new MRI. It has been a while since u got one and u sound like the pain is getting worse. More could be going on inside than u had before.
And last of all, get a new doctor. He is a jerk.
