i have been in pain from my lower back since 1986..i have had 2 back surgeries and will need more in the future . my insurance will not cover it. i need the pain medication just to be able to function in my job as a dental assist/ i have not had any sympathy from my ortho d.r. i am aware that it is addictive, however,it helps me keep my job and maintain a somewhat normal life.
