Unfortunately I've had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since childhood which progressed to polymyalgia rheumatica, and now I have severe back pain due to stenosis. Morphine and Dilaudid are not even touching the pain some days!

I have terrible pain in both sacroiliac joints. I had injections 3 times, but no help.

I get severe low back pain and I use 2 or 3 acetaminophen with 8 mg codeine to stop the pain. I also have multiple sclerosis and no problems with my MS.
