Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board

Thanks again, Quietcook - it's nice to hear from someone who can relate to what I'm going through. I'm moving around a lot better now, with the exception of some new pain that's driving me bonkers! I'm getting a stabbing pain in my lower back, on the left side (I presume the main point of impact) that radiates all through my hip, sometimes even through the front inside of my leg. It doesn't matter if I'm standing, sitting, walking or lying down, and I'm unbelievably frustrated and crabby as a result. I was prescribed vicodin for pain, and 1000 mg won't put a dent in it! This probably should have been a question I asked initially, but what has worked for you as far as pain relief goes? Aside from lying in a hot bath, that is? :)
Thanks for all your help,
