What Should I Do?
DW21113 posted:
I was recently diagnosed with hyperkyphosis of the back. I have taken narcotic pain relievers before, but they were not of my own prescription. They seemed to be the only thing that did the trick, yet i don't know how to talk to my doctor without just seeming like i'm trying to get pills. They've tried me on skelaxin, mobic, and celebrex and none of them started to mask the pain i am in. I work fast-food and a lot of stress is put on my back. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I would highly reccommend looking into posture realignment exercises to restore the curve back into your back. That worked best for me and prevented my L5-S1 fusion surgery.
