I am new to this and did write a profile but don't know if it went through ok. I am having more pain recently. I don't know if it is the weather or if my medicine should be changed. My doctor doesn't like to give medicine for chronic pain however I went to a specialists and he wrote to my doctor and did change it some. I take percoset 2 times a day and soma 3 times a day. I don't sleep at night as my legs and back hurt so bad. The percoset helps but only for about 3 or 4 hours. Then I am in severe pain again. Also it travels all over my body. I won't complain anymore but you sounded like you know what the pain is like from one of your messages to another person. I should also say I took voltarin several years ago for this and had a major bleed. It ate through my stomach and in to artery. I was in intensive care for over a week and 14 U of blood plus plasma and packed cells. Thus I have to be careful of medicine.
