I have 2 bulging disks and sciatica for 7 months now, my baby is 8 months. I am in care of a GP, spine specialist, pain clinic (for shots). I also do acupuncture and physical therapy. I have gotten so far one ESI (cortisone) but it did not take. I take a low dose of morphine at night to sleep, advil, high done ibuprofen, tyreonol. I am suppossed to take Tramadol, but I still want to talk to the breastfeeding hotline and my pedi since its L3.
I have studied Kellymom, asked 3 lactation consultants, breastfeeding hotlines. But I guess I dont ask the right questions. I cannot sleep (the morphine knocks me out but sometimes after 45 min I am awake again) and the nights have been torture for 2 months now. Its unbearable. I am falling into pieces. I have 2 kids to take care of!
Did you have any good experience with any pain meds? Any other ideas? Sleeping pills? Benadryl? Weaning?
