      I take some traditional pain medicines, but in all honesty, I am beginning to think that Western medicine has a lot to learn. I am having an aromatherapy massage once a month, using tiger balm and doing regular exercise, including low intensity yoga.

      Getting Hydrocodone is difficult; see a Pain Doctor who has a Anesthesiologist background. Meloxacam is a anti inflammatory, Gabapentin calms your nerve endings, Tramadol does help when paired with a low dose Hydrocodone. Steroid Shots may help too.

      Here where I am your lucky if you can even get Hydrocodone for pain. My Meloxicam, Gabapentin and Topamax doesn't seem to work for me anymore.

      They had to take me off Lyrica because my face kept swelling

      I don’t use Gabapentin for pain: Lyrica & Effexor together for Fibro. I see a pain specialist: I am receiving Steroid shots for my cervical vertebrae which 3 are herniated. So for pain I’m using Hydrocodone 7.5/325 (7.5 of Norco/ 325 aspirin.) There are other options like Maloxicam which is an anti inflammatory. I hope this is helpful, I will add other options after I meet with my Rheumatologist next week!
