Lots of options: You are likely developing tolerance to Percocet and I would recommend a different approach. If your problem is chronic, and the cause is diagnosed and is not cancer Add neurontin or lyrica (pregabalin). I would consider giving a short course of NSAIDs if there is no contraindications. Decrease or stop Percocet under doctor supervision as it is addictive. Once off u could try butrans patch or tapentadol. Read more

Pain resolution: If your pain problem is receding somewhat, you would expect to find that you are feeling more fatigue than usual. Taking narcotics for chronic pain can be effective but is also problematic in many instances. The best strategy for you as an individual would be to slowly wean yourself off of the narcotic completely except flares. Also routinely take only enough to keep pain to manageable level. Read more
