Having just had posterior cervical foraminotomy, I was struggling with pain. Nothing new for someone with fibro. However, my GP has always just upped the amount and type of pain meds I'm on, with me currently on Pregabalin and 25mg MST (OxyContin) morning and night.
After being readmitted to hospital due to pain, my surgeon was shocked to hear that after having a fibro diagnosis for 20 years, he was giving me prednisolone for the first time. Is there any reason anyone can think of why my GP wouldn't have tried this rather than upping the pain meds as I'm shocked at the difference that this has made to my pain and energy levels. Going to have an apt to ask my GP but thought I'd ask on here to see what others experiences/knowledge is in case there's a glaringly obvious reason not to have tried this!?
