Any suggestions for bulging disk? husband is in obvious pain, worse and worse. He had three epiderals a few months ago. Then was given Vicoden. He use to take 1.5 a day to make it through work. He is noticably in a lot of pain. I noticed him taking 5 vicoden to work the other day. His actions show a lot of pain. Just moving. He is never one to complain about himself or pain. Actually, never talks at all. I know he goes to the neurologist on Monday. But this doctor (specialist) has only been refilling the pain medications for the past few months. Shouldn't there be some type of therapy...anything ? Doesn't want surgery. I have suggested chiropractor, but he doesn't seem willing to do anything. We belong to the health club (which nobody goes to)..Whirlpool - swimming pool to move around. Doesn't have to swim. He has bad arthritic knees so excersizing is painful. To me, he should be doing something. Any suggestions?
