Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board


Had an MRI a few years back and I know for sure that L3-L5 are herniated. I did fairly well for a few years but am now having severe back pain, especially since having an ESI.
I know I need to get another MRI done, no question about that, but I've had a bad onset of tailbone pain these last few days. The bottom of my back feels like its on fire and I have this really strong but dull pain in my tailbone. Does anyone have a clue what would be causing that? Would the lumbar cause that pain?

I am taking morphine and vicodin for pain, it's not touching it. Flexeril is stopping some of the spams but I don't know what else to do in the intermin till I can get into a doctor to have it checked again.

Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks
