Back Problems board

Paula, boy can i relate, i was hopeing the Lyrica would work as well so i could get off the Vicodin, but i have been slowing down, because i started the increased dose and it really seems to relax me although i seem to feel very sweaty from this, in the middle of making sure my thyroid labs are right as well! When the kids go back to school this week i am really going to try and walk some or more i should say and do a few other things to see how i do. I truly think what happens in my case is that if i bend just right i am screwed like it jars it or something and then if the other defect is acting up it's a double whammy. Thats the only thing i can make heads or tails of this. Also they said i didn't have any arthritis but who knows i have only gotten worse since my falls and no tests since then wich has been about a year or so i'm sure i could have because isn't that what can cause the arthritis? I mean thats what i though, injuries, ect. I have had a pretty good holiday weekend, kids slept out in the tent(not for my back anymore ugh) I am thinking when i tell my dr. next week about the Lyrica whatnots she might try to switch my to the Cymbalta. I hate trying all these different meds it's makes me:dizzy:
I hope you had a great holiday as well!
Take care, Melissa
