Hi I am a 36 year old woman who has severe nerve damage and L4 L5 bulguing disc. I had an accident at work in 2002 and did not have any treatment for it in the beginning. I did landscaping until 2007, so I was continuiously re-injuring myself. I again had another accident in 2007 and have been off work since. I am getting nerve blocks every 2 weeks and am on 10mg oxycontin every 8 hrs and perks. Even though I am doing all this I still have severe body pain. Some days I can barely get out of bed or even walk. I'm wondering why none of the treatment is really helping at this point? I'm starting to think that something else is wrong. I was taking anti depressants because I thought maybe that's why I am still in so much pain, and that did not help at all. I also got tested for fibromyalgia and it came back negative. If i'm on all this medication and getting the blocks you would think that my pain would be manageable, but it's not. I sit and sob somedays because my entire body hurts so much! I am at a loss of what to think or do?

H.F.
