Suggest alternative of Soma pain medication

i have severe forminal stenosis w/ spondylosis and DDD in my lower back along with RA, Lupus and fibromyalgias and just slipped a disk in my lower lumbar. I've tried almost every muscle relaxer there is and the only one that helps is Soma, but my pain Dr will not prescribe them to anyone. My former neurologist was presccribing Soma to me and it really helped. Since I got a slipped disk in my lower back, I am in excruciating pain and my pain Dr knows this.

Hi,Welcome to Health care magic forum.
Don't worry about pain medication,after having my regimen of treatment, you can have relief with any medicine.
I advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms neurotropic injections for 10 consecutive days, and then periodically along with other medicines.
Avoid taking potato,other tubers, tomato,egg, chicken,and sea foods,till the pains are completely cleared.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
