Cervical radiculitis

Has anyone gone through this?! I am in so much pain. Insurance is making take the mildest form of meds and work my way up. I skipped that and started taking oxycodone I had left over from past surgery. And, it doesn't help. And add a lupus flare on top of that. 😩

Sorry to hear you have all of this to manage at once! I've experienced bouts of this. On occasion it has taken weeks/a matter of months to quell it/get it under control. Have had to throw everything at it and have used range of analgesics, anti inflammatories, heat, lidocaine patches (Versatis brand), physio, and distraction. Hope you get relief you need soon.
