Hi all, I had a really bad back spasm hit me the day after Thanksgiving which got worse and has been discovered to be two ruptured discs. I was put on oral steroids for a week, ibuprofen and pain meds. I have had some relief, but not much. So I'm going to have spinal injections at the end of the month. Till then I'm just on ibuprofen and pain meds as needed. Well the pain meds have been a real problem. Vicodin worked, but they took me off of it because of the acetaminophen. Don't want to ruin the liver. Then they gave my Oxy. It makes me very wired and jittery, can't sleep. Then they gave me Norco. Also makes me jittery and can't sleep. Plus when I did sleep I had hallucinations. Sooo, I'm not talking these pain meds now. I need to find a pain med that will allow me to sleep and will do the job. Especially because in about a week I have to go off the ibuprofen and all anti-inflammatory meds for a week before my procedure. Any suggestions? I'd appreciate what side effects you have experienced too.
