Re: Question for Shoreline or anyone else that can help
yes you are correct, he gave me vicodin es,it is 7.5/750. I thought that it was less hydro. I did not undrstand his thinking. So I cannot take 2? If I take it every 4 hours I will run out early but I have to be able to work.
My pain is still very bad, it has almost been 3 weeks now, I also have pain running down my spine by my sholder blade which is new.
Is is possible that he hit a different nerve than c7?
I am back to taking the 5/500 2 every 6 hours because I get better relief although it still only works for around 3 hours.....
I will not have anothe ESI, it made me worse.
What would be your suggestion to speak to him about next. he is a spine specailist, phisiologist (sp?)...
The neurotrin that I take is not longer working.
By the way, do I have to wean off the neurontrin or can I just stop taking it? I have bad side effects,(dizzyness, headaches etc.) and it is not really helping my nerve pain anymore...
