I wonder if we could have a place where we could post what we are on for pain like a trophy wall it could be interesting to see.
As you say we all have different levels of pain and I know of a few that suffer constant headaches like yourself and I am pleased to say I haven't had the misfortune of having a severe headache (touch wood) there are a few on the site who I wouldn't change places with.
I have post herpatic nueralgia right side from the ribs to the toes ( a dose of shingles caused by constant pain)lumbar and cervical spondylosis and have just had ACDF surgery to remove the disc between C5-C6 and fusion with a cage approx 4 months ago .
I am one of the lucky ones.
My little list
Lyrica 300 mg twice a day
Sertraline 200mg morning
OxyContin 10mg twice daily
Endep 100mg night
Tramadol 150mg night
Endone as required (10s pain)
Pandadiene forte as required (up to 7s pain)
In case I have a small supply of Xanax
Safe travels on your journey a remember there is a lot of people who can offer advice or lend a shoulder so you are not alone
as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse
