Back Problems board

Orville: I have real bad back problems. Was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease early last year. A few months ago I had a herniated disk at the L5-S1 level. Luckily, it has resolved itself.

My pain management specialist prescribed Ultracet for the break through pain. During the day I take Diclofenac Sodium. Once during breakfast and once before bed. Diclofenac is an NSAID with the possibility of hurting your stomach, but taken on a full stomach I have no problems with it. The Ultracet is a miracle drug for me. It can be habit forming, but if taken when you hurt the worst, it won't be a problem. The problem might be getting your doctor to prescribe it.

I was on Vioxx before it was pulled. Caused my blood pressure to rise. Went on to Bextra - same result. I've been off both of them for over a year now. Check out the Diclofenac and Ultracet.
