Hi,I'm Andy.New here. Enquiring for the wife.She doesn't know. Had slipped discs 8/9 years . She's taking around 3 times the painkillers she was at the beginning.In fact she runs out of prescribed medication and buys strong over the counter painkillers for around the final week of the month before her script is due. She's visited the physio and chiropractor briefly ,but to no avail.Saw a consultant about 5+ years ago for an operation,but he said no due to the risk. I know the effects of painkillers long term isn't good.Just wondering if anybody has gone through this or has any suggestions. She still works 22 hours a week , but she goes to bed early (7.30 - 8.30 pm most nights) for respite.
