I'm a male in my late teens. I have had chronic back & neck pain since i was 15 or 16. I've had multiple test done on my neck, back, shoulders, tailbone - including CT's, MRI's , Contrast CT's, Nerve Scans. I've recieved Nerve block shots - none of it works. The only thing they found wrong with me is degenertive disk disease in my low back. I have been on Vicodin and Flexeril for nearly a year now, however i've been taking far more than perscribed to help my pain. A few days ago at school i passed out and they could not wake me up. Eventually after being out for 3 hours i awoke. My parents now know that i have been ODing on the medicine. I myself didnt even realise how much i took. But it came out to be <mod edit-gentlelady-methods> They took my medicine away from me and will only give me what im allowed to take, which is one of each pill every 8 hours so 3 a day. However in order to make my pain even slightly better, i have to take at least 3 vicodin and 2 flexeril. I don't know what to do now. I cant handle all of the pain. Its not that im having withdrawels from the lack of medicine, its just my back pain is so severe. I don't know if the DR will give me a stronger medicine or not, they mentioned oxycotin a few times, but i don't know if they want to put me on it being they cant really find out why i am in so much pain. They tried putting me on cymbalta which is a weak anti-depressant which is supposed to help with nerve damage pain, but it didnt make my pain go better, it didnt help my depression, it just made it so i couldnt sleep for about a week straight. I feel like im running out of options here. My girlfriend is worried sick about me, its because of her that i am alive today, she is the one who told the teacher i was very messed up in class, then she took me to the nurse, and thats all i remember of that day. She told my parents she thought i was taking too much, and thats how they found out. I just dont know wht to do now, i cant deal with the pain any longer, my mom gives me the 1 flexeril and 1 vicodin every 8 hours but it doesnt do hardly anything at all. What should i do? what can i do?
