Rebecca’s lower back pain seems to be getting worse. The doctor increased the pain medication from 80 mg three times a day to 100 mg three times a day. The instant break through pain medication seems to have lost its effectiveness. Her tolerance for this pain medication may be on the increase. She has an appointment with a pain clinic to see what they can do. She has been there before and has had about three epidurals. She had mixed results with those.
