Hello Georgia, I'm from Georgia. My sister and I have both said we would eat "Dog Crap" if it would get rid of our pain. I always said I didn't know how people became addicted to alcohol or pain medicine but after having this terrible sciatica I can understand why. My Mother was an alcoholic and now that I've been in so much pain I can understand "why' much better.
I was researching pain meds. last night and came across an interesting article. Has anyone here ever heard of or tried Cobroxin? It stated it was venom from a Cobra snake that has been diluted. You can get it in a spray to use under your tongue or as a gel to rub where your pain is. Apparently you can buy it OTC. I don't like taking codeine because it makes me feel like I'm in a cloud when I'm on it. Just wondered about the Cobroxin. any thoughts?View Thread
I don't really have a discussion topic just complaining, moaning and grumbling. I am soooo tired of this back pain and Sciatica in my left leg. I had always said I would never have any more back surgery. I've about changed my mind. Don't see why the Dr.'s can't just open me up in my lumbar section and just do what they have to do to get me out of this pain.View Thread
Hello Insmith, I to am suffering from sciatica for almost 2 weeks now. The pain is terrible. I've also had a cortisone shot and a dosepak of prednisone. NO relief. I'm going to a massage therapist today to have my piriformis muscle deep massaged. I've tried heat, ice, Aleve and Hydrocodone. Can't take the Hydro, it makes me to loopy. Hope you get some relief soon. It sure isn't a fun thing to deal with.
I have tried the Neurotin and Lyrica. They both made me dizzy. A physiatrist tried me on them several years ago. I stopped taking them after a week because I couldn't function. How many mgs. do you take?View Thread
