Hello I hope I am posting correct this is my very first post here. I hate to see others suffering from this but I find so much comfort from finally seeing others understand. I have suffered from this for over ten years now. This is all through my intercostal nerves on my left side in my rib cage under my left breast goes under my arm pit and wraps around my back but the back area is just a dull ache. I have tried the meds in the world for nerve damage and the problem is a late very late diagnosis so well you know the story. I have a spinal cord stimulator put in last year that helps with the pain but it takes that plus pain meds to give me relief and my leads have came loose from the transmitter so right now I am awaiting surgery to have them replaced. I am on strong pain meds and I just don't know what seems to work the best as far as pain meds but I guess my question is does that depend on the person? ?? I was on Norco but we had to move to long acting pain meds and they are talking about the fentynal patch. I am sure I did not spell that right. I have not decided if that is a route I want to take or not. Thanks for any input you may have at all.
