I am wondering for any others who have been diagnosed with arthritis what medications you were prescribed and whether you found them helpful or not?
I was initially diagnosed with Spinal Arthritis back in 2012 for which I was prescribed Arthrotec for it. In the beginning I will say it did help me so I can go about my day. Over time pain gradually became worse. In April of this year during a 2 week hospital stay ( Had no mobility (severe pain. couldnt sit, stand, walk) and at first they though I broke my hip. During my hospital stay and extensive testing (mri, xrays, ct scans) I was diagnosed further with Scoliosis and DDD. Since then I've been on Morphine, Dilaudid, Naproxen, Tylenlol 3, also Baclofen. To this date I must say I havent had much success with any of these medications really helping to manage my pain. Does anybody know of any other medication I can discuss with my doctor that may bring me relief? I get such severe pain right now that is so bad I can only walk maybe 1 block before it causes me to double over. At this point in time I cant even shower unassisted. I just want some type of relief even if its just a few hours at a time.
OTC Medications Ive tried
Tylenol w/ Codeine
