I will keep this short. But I've suffered from lower back problems for years. I had an MRI done recently and the results came back as severe to moderate osteoarthritis with major disc degeneration. Surgery is not an option according to the neurosurgeon. My family doctor has put me on tramadol but I take amytriptiline and celexa and both drugs are contraindicated to take with tramadol. I'm in a lot of pain and I'm desperate. What drugs can you recommend? I don't care about addiction at this point because I have no quality of life anyways. I am just desperate for relief and I've been entertaining very dark thought. But the pain inteferes so much with my daily life and I can't see a way out. I feel like my life is over. Thanks for your help.
