Winter is the worst for me and very simple things are getting harder for me to do so right now I'm trying to decide on possibly using Opana ER
for the winter and then tapering off come spring.
I've found relief in lidoderm patches, Voltaren gel, compounding gels, ibuprofen, heat, ice, distraction, etc. But there are times that doesn't work and after a few weeks of really bad pain I will take oxycodone to try to break the pain cycle. Unfortunately it's not helping much at the moment.
