Gabapentin 600 mg 3 times a day, and I'm still sore. 81 yo
When I am really sore 5 mg oxycodone, about once every 6 to 8 weeks
Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms, add a bag of Doritos, and we have a picnic.
It's a beautiful day, watch some idiot come along and screw it up.

If I've ever been disrespectful to you Sir I apologize. I take oxycodiene also. 5 mg once a day no more no less. Along with the meloxicam.

After 6 back surgeries, two total knee replacements, right elbow surgery and several other things over the years. I get stiff when I first wake up. Just snapped my my darn thumb out of joint. It pops every time I move it. Hurts like hell. But if l don't move it. It get's stiff and fixed in one position :P

I'm 58 now. I just cannot envision what kind of condition I'll be in when I'm 81. I'll have to be in an assisted living facility. Because I basically have no family and no children. My wife will be be dead by then. She's older than me. But if I had my choice. I'd rather go first. Because I can not imagine my life without her. :cry:

After seeing the responses from you guys and some guys at another site that I cross posted, I just realized, My problems don't amount to shit!

I was hoping that someone would post about some new whiz-bang relief that I hadn't heard about.

Only 67 but at times 2mm ibuprofen works....beware. some heart blood pressure meds don't mix well with ibuprofen. In the old days when I had gout, I would cry myself to sleep...changed diet and eliminated the intake of wrong foods...

While it's not wiz bang new technology, I've suffered for years with it and changed my diet to reduce inflammation that foods produce. I also take high quality fish oil 2x day and cbd oIL my SIL produces. On a real severe barometer change, a little pain shows up for a short time.

I stopped all the pharmacy drugs doctors tried to give me years ago. Many of which were early anti depressive drugs like zoloff they used to treat a bunch of stuff. Dr's are quacks.
