| | lyrica questions
I have had lower back pain since I was 17, 33 now, I finally had an MRI done about a year and a half ago and they said I had a herniated disk and some deteriation in my facet joints(my spelling is probably wrong). Was on pain meds and the pain eventully went away. Last week it was begining again and I lifted things yesterday that I should not have and am in serious pain again that shoots down my leg. I can hardly walk and sitting is very painful also. I went to the doctor today and he gave me vicodin, which helps just a little, and lyrica, which I have never taken and it is supposed to be for nerve pain. He told me to just take it at night. He wants me back in 3 weeks to talk about doing some kind of injections in my back which really makes me nervous. He said he dosen't think psysical therapy will help me at all either, hmm.
