Chronic pain in lower back & left hip/leg
Hi my name is Susan, my main illness is Epilepsy & so pain medication is got to be carefully given. I have two prolapsed discs in my lower back & the pain is mainly on my left side now especially since I fell down a flight of stairs & fractured my left hip as i put alot more pressure on my left side and is now suffering so much more. I am taking co-codamol 30mg-500mg 2x 4 times a day, 5ml 10mg/5ml oramorph x 4 a day, epilim chrono 2x500mg twice a day, 50mg Topiramate 1 x twice a day , 20mg x amitriptyline at night and 2mg x3 times a day diazepam. Sorry I've just listed my drugs but I was wondering if you or anyone reading this knew of any other painkillers that might be more affective and which wont affect my epilepsy drugs. Sorry if this is not what this site is for. Just let me know and i will take this down. Thanks in advance susan x
