As the increase to 25 mg pred has not helped my flare after 12 days on this dose my GP suspects the excruciating pain and stiffness in my upper back when trying to get on or out of a chair may be due to a bulging disc. He has ordered MRI scans but as the appointment may be weeks away has meanwhile prescribed Oromorph.
I am scared to take this drug because of potential tolerance and addiction. Has anyone had experience of this drug? Thanks. Badgergirl
