I am looking for everyones input on this one. Meds, which one works for you, if any. I have to make some choices soon. Currently on methotrexate, folic acid, valium and oxycodone. I'm from New Jersey, suddenly the heroin epidemic is making all the doctors around here not give out narcotics. I know people who "hurt their back" and get medical marijuana, oxycotin( the crazy stuff, not oxycodone) etc. Ridiculous, well maybe good for them but annoying to people like us with real issues. I have a fractured(5 or 6 times) and separated clavicle, fractured vertebrae, broken ribs, rib cage is twisted, had a spinal fusion in my neck with a nerve that is still compressed(damaged in all reality). A compressed vein, degenerative disc disease, 6 or 7 herniated discs( cervical and lumbar), and AS. Still on the fence with AS or is it spondyloarthropathy. Yeah I know the difference, not sure my rheumy is connecting the dots with any certainty. Comforting ;(, to say the least. I may not be able to get narcotics anymore, and it sucks, because I can control myself with them and they help. And it seems I may be allergic to Nsaids. That's just peachy isn't it.
What WORKS best for you? If nothing is doing it for you, please share that as well. My wife wants me to try Humira and yes Hope I know what your gonna say, but say it anyway. I am looking forward too many responses to compare and evaluate. Adverse side effects vs. positive effects. Dmards, Nsaids, Bios, name it- I'm listening. The more the merrier! Don't be shy, there are alot of people on this site. I am looking for a group effort here, as ya'll are the people who know the most. Seriously! I wanna go into my next pain management and rheumy visits with overwhelming info. and awareness.
Can't wait to see what everyone has to say, Indi
PS- Thanx for your time, ahead of time. lol
