I had to quit taking Lyrica twice before my hard head realiized it really, really did help. Also my Doctor gives me 10 mg. Percocet 4 times daily 10/.325., but he also told me I could take Aleve or Motrin along with it. I also have other meds I take for major depression. But the motrin along with the percocet helps as much as anything else can as far as pain goes. I read somewhere this disease can go away, I hope this is a true statement, and if so I wish I could hurry it along. I am tired of people telling me they use to have it when they were under stress, but only in their neck!?!?, or others telling me they have it but I must be weaker or have it a lot worse because they go hiking and all sorts of things. I do good going to the mailbox. Ask your Docs about trying ibroprofen with any pain meds, maybe it will hel you..Good luck!!!!View Thread
