Have you tried acupuncture? That may have some positive results. My doc tells me tramadol can help without the euphoric effects. It's still an opiate unfortunately.  

I have deep empathy for your chronic pain condition.
All the best.

Sometimes steroids help. My dentist gave me something that he said was 20x stronger than ibuprofin and it was a steroid. dextromethosomething. It helps with bone pain and inflamation (inflammation). Best luck. Corey

there is also a pain forum here on medhelp...most are resigned to narcotics there tho....and that is a choice chronic pain patients make and it is their choice...not everyone is an addict..i was/am...i found that inversion therapy has helped me tremendously...i also have scoliosis which caused DDD.. fusions and fighting not to have another fusion....narcotics only make u interpret pain differently...doesnt make it go away just interrupts the signals to the brain...i have chosen more direct methods like massage, lengthening my disc space with inversion therapy, accupressure, heat ice and whatever else seems to work...yoga has been a life saver for me..keep posting

That "donkey kick to your back" comment was totally uncalled for. Go to another support forum with your nasty comments.


Avisg..... I am asking you to delete that hurtful comment that jmgenova said  out of respect to the addicts that became that way due to chronic pain. Your a chronic painer yourself. Don't you find that uncalled for?

Thanks for the support with this horrible comment. This person should be kicked off the site. What an a$$hole!!!!! This really pissed me off more than you can imagine b/c I need pain meds that are non addictive as I have chronic pain. What a jerk.



Everyone that agrees should comment!!!!!!!!!!!

What the VA has me on now is Gabapentin or the common name Neurontin and anatripaline.... both are non narcotic. I’m not a big fan of the side effects for me, I have gained over 23lbs in over a month. As far as getting rid of the pain...well some days are better than others.
