changes in barometric pressure cause havoc w/my L/S spine...Had to resort to taking 2 Percocet this day. Still feel as if 'teeth' are clamped across my lower back. I will be so glad when I hopefully have my 2nd SCS utilizing the subQ leads that will be able to really pinpoint the painful area..will go for the psych exam on the 23rd. Then will be scheduled for the 'trial' in the 'future'...have a good evening all. 'bamaVickie
