Hey guys! Cant believe I havent posted since August! I wish I could say that I was pain free but Im not. I was doing a lot better for awhile but since the cold weather has hit oklahoma Ive had a really bad week. The burning/numbness and tingling has come back full force in my neck/shoulder and Im feeling discouraged. Im taking Celebrex and darvocet and Im back working full time and have been for over a month. I just finished PT and the strengthing exercises helped but like I said, the pain has returned this week. It was never totally gone but I was only taking a pain pill like every other day and this week several times a day. I have arthritis and DDD all throughout my cervical spine so I know the pain is here to stay. Im thinking that I have nerve damamge and was just wondering if I should add a med for this. I saw where some of you all are taking Topamax and I know that Lyrica is popular now. Anyone have any suggestions? My doc said that it might take 6 mths for the nerves to heal but it seems like now that Im back working full force at home and work the symptoms are all returning. So, has all this been in vain.
