i am not on any meds at all , because i was given so many drugs when i was 6yrs old i had menningitus plus tb i had a very lot of drugs pumped into me as a child, but when i was of a legal age i refused to take any more and i use other methods like heat n bath treatments ,  but unfortunatley i must start again as i am in constant pain daily and fatigued alot . so i am going to my doctors tomorrow to ask for a pain patch rather than taking tablets which have other side effects ,that will can stop me from driving . if i stop driving i will go insane being house bound

I’ve had these before when I had kidney stones. I can just remember sleeping a lot.

I now use lidocaine patches which make the painful area numb. I wear them 12 hours on and 12 hours off. I do have painkillers as well but without the patches my back is so painful.
