I have had surgery and injections with no help. I went to Mayo and the first thing the Neurosurgeon said was " no more surgery and no more injections". He suggested the Nevro Spinal Stimulator, which I had done at Mayo. At first I got a small amount of relief. Not now tho. I am still on Hydrocondin and Mayo is starting to refuse to give it to me. They said I have to get it from my Primary Care Dr. Who will not give it to me because I need to get it from a Pain Specialist. I went to a Pain Dr (that the PC suggested.) He said injections. (Do you see a pattern here). I am more then willing to drop the Hydrocondin (I take 2 a day due to the fear of getting "hooked" l limit them, although I really need them more often. Mayo gave me a prescription for Venlafaxine (Effexer) and it made me deathly sick.
My stomach tolerates very few meds. I was wondering what other meds Drs. prescribe for pain. I know every person is different but feel knowing that might help me talking to my Dr.U
