I have been diagnosed with mild degenerative disc disease May 04. I have had back pain on/off since a teenager but most recently (Oct 2003) it has been non-stop. I recently went through the test shots for RFA (facet Joints) and am on a waiting list for the procedure. I normally am okay with my pain meds but today is just terrible. I am almost in tears. Since coming to this pain mgmt doctor I have been prescribed hydrocodone, Kadian (stopped taking as I was still having major pain episodes) and now I am on vicoprofen which usually works well. I had a terrible time sleeping last night and would like to get something stronger. I don't want to appear to be drug seeking but I need some help. What do you all suggest?
