I've been taking 5/325 hydrocodone
along with gabapenten for acute nerve pain in my wrist and hand , also for 5 back surgeries which have mounted up into chronic pain in my lumbar area, 1 and 1/2 pill every 6 hours and it seems to numb the pain for me. Now with the recent scare of everyone over dosing my primary doctor will not subscribe it for me any longer. I'm not an addict but I would like to continue this remedy since it helps me cope with this very painful wrist hand and back. life is a bitch isn't it. I am 73 years old
JA: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: I'm trying to find a local pain clinic but I've been through physical therapy
and its just creates more pain. I've been to a neurologist twice and he recommended surgery which I had done, but i still have more pain. I went for a 2nd opinion but the doc said I'll have to learn to live with pain, easy for her to say right.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I don't understand why I can't keep my daily usage of 6 - 5/325 hydro which controls or numbs my pain. I visit my primary Doctor every thirty days for a check up also.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
