What Do You Do To Ease Your Pain When It Gets Really Bad? E.g. Which Meds Do You Use And What Other Methods Help You?

I take Norco 10-325 and Baclofen for pain. I also take cymbalta and prozac for depression and cymbalta helps with the pain. And I use a TENS machine and lidocaine as a topical treatment. Sometimes a heating pad is good and sometimes ice works nicely.

@JohnsonKI - hey thanks! I didn't take very long to see the value of this site! Baclofen is muscle relaxer and is good for me since I am 60. Flexeril is reported to cause dizziness and falling in people over 60 so my dr would not prescribe it. With all the falls I have taken in the last 6 months I am glad she didn't give me that one!

do you have Fibromyalgia? I was taken off the Norco May 2016 due to CDC guidelines implemented in my pain management office.

I've been given valium to add as needed. It doesn't do anything about the pain, but I don't care. It's weird. I feel it but it doesn't bother me. I also make very rude comments, which my daughter thinks is hilarious. X
