Started with pain in her right buttocks near the sacral region. PCP checked her and found nothing. MRIs were done which showed arthritis in the spinal column. Pain in the right buttocks has a burning sensation and is very painful for her. Can't tolerate muscle relaxers that have been prescribed. Tried giving her liquid magnesium and that made her sick, also. Her quality of life is decreasing. Loved word search puzzles and did them religiously everyday. Now she won't even look at them. Her appetite has decreased considerably. Doctor prescribed hydrocodone and I rub her with Evening Primrose Oil. Any suggestions on how to help her more? She is a sweet, sweet mother. I just don't know how I can help her more medically and how to help her stay awake more?
