I have scoliosis and very severe pains in my back during the day. I am a SAHM and while I love being with my 8-month-old son, my back protests. My doc gave me vicodin and a muscle relaxer called Flexeril. Vicodin barely does anything except take the edge off the pain and make me sleepy. Flexeril is so strong, even when cut in half, that if I take it, it knocks me out for hours, like 10-13 hours. Does anybody have any suggestions for pain relief/relaxation during the day, like a heating pad or something? Anybody have any ideas that are not western medicine? I hate taking pills and I want to be able to take care of my son without being in pain all the time. Help!
