Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I am sorry to hear about this, what have you tried for the pain so far?
Can you see my replies?
I replied yesterday. Tried PT and Ibuprofen and a "medrol?" dose pack. that's about it.
Hpw long did you try these for?
PT was for about 6 weeks. Ibuprofen all the time. the dose pack was about one year ago.
May I ask what dose of ibuprofen?
You can ask, but my answer may not be the greatest. I think it generally is about 800 mg if that sounds right
Any idea how many pills of the ibuprofen you take at a time and how often? Also, was it prescribed or OTC?
OTC. usually 4. Try not to overdo it as I want to keep my liver and surrounding organs, if possible. Just when it really bothers me, which is often when I go to bed. May just be the consequenses of life.
Does it help? Also, any other medical conditions you take medication for?
Some. I take insulin for my diabetes (pump) and prozac for depression. I also take a statin.
Have you ever tried neurontin or tramadol?
Okay ,tramadol is a non addictive pain medication, and it won't affect your kidneys , I would recommend you ask your doctor to try that first. Neurontin works well for nerve related pain, but sometimes it helps relieve muscular pain as well (has a synergistic effect with other pain medication), so it is a good option, it works well in diabetics
Ok. I will ask about these. I appreciate your time. Thanks.
You're quite welcome
