Currently I take antidepressants, magnesium, vitamins, regular acupressure and acupuncture, yoga, 2 co-codamol at night and as much codeine as I can take through the day without getting too tired.
Is there anything else someone can recommend that isn't too tiring but will let me do my schoolwork/ go to school/ have a life?
I've heard good things about gabapentin and tramadol but my doctors are REALLY against giving me any sort of painkiller. took ages to get the codeine - after years of barely managing pain (since I was 13).
I'm now 17 almost 18 and feeling more positive about my future but looking at failing my finals if I cant manage my pain somehow. the pain is predominantly in my shoulders, lower back (where I have an unresolved fracture), sciatica, hips, knees and hands.
This sucks so bad and I don't know what else to try
