My boyfriend has severe back pain and it seems like all they do is give him pain medication. He is only 25 years old and is on 15 mg percocets 150 a month, methadone 90 a month and 90 somas a month... Sometimes this is not enough for him and he often runs out. I am concerned of the addiction that comes along with these medication as well as why they are not fixing his back problems. He has bulged discs, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and arthritis of the knees. Also, his doctors inject his back with steroid epidurals, my concern is that they are only blocking the pain and not fixing it. I would love if there was anyway you could help him! I would love if someone can once and for all tell him what exactly is wrong with his back and a way to fix it. I also want him to be off these medications so he can be fully alert and well for our ten month old son.
