Hi all

I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the lower back and spine. My doctor's has given me medication for the pain. 10 mg morphine patches and 50 mg amitriptyline. Drs appointment are still over the phone and they won't put this medication on repeat prescription. I have now started physio after over a year on the waiting list. Still waiting to for an appointment with the msk clinic 8 months on the waiting list. I am not sure at all about the medication. Some days are better than others. What do other people take and does accupunture actually help.

Thanks for any suggestions or help
