As many of you know, I have a couple of blown out discs in my back (fear not, I see the neuro surgeon on Tuesday next week), but the current pain killers I use (Vicodin 5/500) just send me into outer space. Does anyone here deal with a chronic pain problem that can recommend a less "into the stratosphere" pain killer? I don't use them that often (afraid of addiction), but if I have to, I'm basically out for a day. Can't work or anything. Thanks!
