I'm not a doctor, but I've known more than most of them when it comes to these things.
We both practice what we know from books , education and experience.
My experience has been that I often know more than them.
I take the 325s instead of the extra strength and to not take them very often.

I was in quite a bit of pain today. Just took my nighttime cocktail of meds and feeling fine now.

Mostly I ignore pain; it has been a companion for a long time and lets me know I'm still alive. About the only time I medicate for pain is after surgery and then not more than 36 hours. At those times I've found that Torodol works best for me; it actually makes any pain just "go away" for six hours. A true Wonder drug, for me at least!

I have a regimen of drugs daily that keep me on the green side of the lawn. (Diabetes, hypertension, and a tendency toward sinus/chest congestion.) I'm not too worried: the odds are in favor of me dying because I irritated some liberal snowflake past it's endurance point!

I've been managing my pain fairly well the past few months. Tonight is a different story. Since it was Friday night, we stayed up a bit later than usual in order to avoid being wide awake at 6am. That literally backfired. Meaning it was 4am and I was wide awake with my back on fire. I have permanent muscle and nerve damage going from where the ribs join onto the vertebrae where I broke three vertebrae. Also right down where the vertebrae joins the pelvis.

When I flare up like this, no amount of medication will help. It hurts to sit down. It hurts to stand. It hurts to lay down. There is no relief.

I'm not talking about regular back pain. It's burning so much that the muscles in my legs are a burning numbness and I can't feel my feet. So I'm back to walking at a snails pace with two canes.

Hope your pain eases up soon.

It seems that we have both arrived at the same point in life. I'm pretty much on the same cocktail of drugs. I don't take painkillers as a general rule. I can't even remember the last time I popped one but the way my back keeps on getting worse it may not be too long.

We bought a new mattress about a year and a half ago. If I had another one, I would be guilty of a private bon fire in the back yard tonight if I had my way. Memory foam just means you lay in the same hole you made night after night. A night in a hotel with a firm mattress sealed the deal for me. When you wake up in the morning hurting, and the night before you weren't you need a new one..

I see no one makes a mattress that can be flipped. I have to wonder if the makers of these had a pow wow in the Bahama's and are colluding to make us purchase a new one every several years.

I wish I could buy a Serta Perfect Sleeper as we had. Son of guns don't make them any more that are free of that bullsh1t foam and are not able to be flipped unless you like sleeping on cardboard..

For the pain in my shoulders, I take Alieve, but only sparingly. To much of anything is bad, and it works best the less you use. JMHO

Regards, Kirk

We bought a new semi firm mattress about 4 years ago. It's been good. But I've discovered that I can't lay flat since my accident. So I have a wedge pillow to elevate my upper body. Problem is that my back now needs as soft as I can get it and that wedge pillow is a firm foam. So I improvised. I have the wedge, then a very soft foam pillow under my back and a thicker pillow under my head. Not to mention a grab bar to help me get up on my own in the morning otherwise it ain't happening.
