I have been in horrible pain the last couple of weeks. My lower back feels just like it did before my 2 discetomies and my fusion; in Oct./Nov. 2004.
Except that I have no pain going down my legs, which is good, I guess.
So I called my PM doctor 2 days ago, they said to increase my Fentanyl patch to 100 mcg. Then on Wed. of next week, if I don't see any results that we might have to do another MRI. Which I just had last Oct. due to pain in lower back, but it has greatly increased since then.
Last night and tonight, I have noticed that I feel really drugged down. Very sleepy but you also have to understand I work nights. My sleep pattern has been very good that last couple of days so that might be it too.
Has been an effect on anyone else that takes this much, just wondering?
