I haven`t posted for a long time as I have not felt the need to ask for support. I was born with bilateral hip dysplasia and developed osteoarthritis in both hips, which have been replaced. I also have degenerative disc disease in my lumbar spine, and had an anterior interbody lumbar fusion 3 years ago. Since then I have lost 5 and a half stones, tried to walk more to increase my fitness and general y do all the things the docs usually say to do. Regardless of this I am in excruciating pain in my spine and legs , and am probably looking at having further spinal surgery . I already take a lot of pain killers including Tramadol, Naproxen, Pregablin, and paracetamol. my GP can only suggest Morphine as my next step, but as I have tried this in the past and went through awful withdrawal , I am not keen to do this. Can you suggest any other options for neuropathic/nerve pain?
Sorry for long post
