Help ! What has worked for the pain !

I'm so disgusted with having to wake up everyday and dreading getting out of bed and knowing the pain is gonna be there -my neuro dr has tried ALOT of things and nothing seems to be working -i have been on 7.5 Norcos for the last 6 months for the extreme migraines and it was helping a little for the leg pains but it seems to have stopped giving me relief ! What are some of the meds that have worked for others -I am on the highest dose gabapentin( 800mgs 4 times a day and all they really do is make me feel drunk -I am on topamax , depakote and now he is experimenting with different antidepressants that apparently somewhere it must say that it helps people when in reality it doesn't do nothing but make me nauseous and tired -he had once mentioned the butran patch but I wanted to see if it had ever helped anyone at all ? Please someone help me out ! I am gonna lose my mind !

  • I'm SO SORRY YOUR IN SO MUCH PAIN. I DO UNDERSTAND AS I'VE BEEN LIVING WITH IT FOR MANY YEARS NOW. SORRY BUT I STILL HAVE NOT FOUND ANYTHING THAT HELPS THE PAIN. WISH I COULD HELP. I'M SO TIRED OF THE PAIN THAT SOMETIMES [ALOT ] I THINK I WOULD BE BETTER OFF TO JUST END IT ALL. THE OLDER I GET THEWORSE IT IS. I ALSO HAVE THE BONES IN MY BACK DISSINAGRATING AND LOTS OF NERVE DAMAGE THAT GOES INTO MY LEGS AND FEET. WHATEVER YOU DO PLEASE DO NOT LET THEM PUT YOU ON STEROIDS. YOU WILL ONLY GET WORSE. I WENT FROM 135 TO 230 BEFORE THEY FINALLY TOOK ME OFF THEM. I HAVE BEEN THIN ALL MY LIFE AND NOW I CAN'T GET THIS FAT OFF. EVERYDAY I LOOK IN THE MIRROR I HATE WHAT I SEE AND JUST WANT TO DIE AND STOP ALL OF THIS. THIS IS JUST NO WAY TO LIVE. SO SORRY FOR THE RANT BUT IT'S EATING ME UP INSIDE AND NO ONE AROUND ME SEEMS TO CARE OR UNDERSTAND. ANY WAY MERRY CHRISTMAS BLESS YOU ALL. JAN
