Hi Ddm12,
Have you had some success with the stim ,I know a few on this site have had a number of problems and hate them ,I would talk to your GP before changing your dosage as you could run into problems ,morphine and opioid based drugs are on the black list and all drs are trying to not prescribe them so ask your doc if there is anything non morphine based which could give you some relief after all they are there to help you..
I have had nerve endings in my lumbar spine which give some relief about every
3 months I’m like a pin cushion

as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse

Nevro is the newest SS and I have had this one for 6 weeks and works better than ST Jude but does get rid of a lot of neuropathic pain.
Have tried many different pills, still on 300mg lyrica which has some help but unfortunately still need opioids. Have needles every 6 months which also help but every time I try and reduce opioids run into a lot of pain issues. Mind you 6 months ago I couldn’t do anything so I do have a lot of my life back riding horses etc but still constant pain which varies day to day etc with no real pattern as to why.

Hi Ddm12,
I’m on 300mg lyrica (twice a day), 200mg Sertraline (morning) , 2 x panadol osteo (3 times a day) , 2 x 50mg endep (nightly) , 2 x 2 mg circadin (nightly) and 10mg oxycodone (nightly) which dulls the pain as my lumbar spine stuffed
This is where I have the nerves burnt L3/4 ,L4/5 ,L5/S1 , I also have 14 nerve burns when they do the sacro iliacs.
Unfortunately I can’t get back on a horse ? I’ve had to get a car with wider seats so my pelvis isn’t cramped and also allows me to wriggle to adjust my seating position .
