Hi Deborah,

May I ask what treatment options you've already undergone? (i.e. surgery, acupuncture, natural alternatives, heat/ice treatment, chiropractic manipulation, massage therapy, light physical exercise (yoga), eating more plant-based foods etc).

I would normally suggest taking advantage of those options before relying on prescription narcotics; mainly because things like yoga and natural alternatives can be done throughout your life without necessarily being dependent on your doctor.

I hope this advice helps!

What alleviates the pain can vary from person to person, so the only way to find out what works for you is by trying different medications, until you discover the one that works.

Learn more Norco details here.

For instance, many of those that post on here swear by Norco or Vicodin for pain relief, I was on it once for an infected tooth and it worked too well, I had to cut the tablets in half and not take a whole one.

However, since it isn't working for you, you may want to see if you can try something such as Percocet, which contains Oxycodone with Acetaminophen.

Learn more Percocet details here.

The final choice is up to you and your doctor, so that's just an idea.

Have you tried any others?

I have found that PT and cortisone injections in my lower back help more then anything else. I was taking 15mg MSContin, 3 times a day plus 2 Norcos/day for breakthrough pain, the narcotics did little for the sciatic pain. Ice packs and heat pads work better then any narcotic.

The only thing I found that helps with nerve pain is a tens unit. It doesn't take all the pain away, but it makes it so your not going crazy. Hope this helps. And your doctor can order it for you. They are expensive but state insurance covers it also.

I am having excruciating sciatic nerve pain in my left leg and need relief. Burning, pinching pain.

Does anyone have any recommendations for treatment?
