Back Problems board


Tami -

My meds have been a miracle. I can now do normal things in the house without alot of back pain; however, if I go out of the house to shop or walk my back and nerve pain kicks in full force. My pain is typically a 4/5 now instead of a 8/9 so overall I have nothing to complain about and am thanking the LORD for this reprieve.

I have a doctors appt again on Tuesday and I am a little nervous because he told me that he really does not like his patients on oxycontin and often switches them to methadone. I am scared that he might change me and what if it does not cover my pain as well??

Thank you for asking and I pray that you get your results soon.
