A weekend of misery

I seriously am thinking my dr was seeing how I would react without my meds. I think they saw a side of me they never seen before, anger/pain and a side of withdrals. But if I would have waited until they played their game I would have ended up in the er.

I know when I was on oxy it wasn't near as bad when I came off when I went back to work the first time. Morphine has been the only med thus far that keeps my pain levels down enough to cope, and other than feeling tired it don't play mind gamed and sound sensitive, . We all know deep down that narcotics are bad but what is one to do....suffer.

It has been on our local news channels about cracking down on dr 's scripting narcotics. The er now has stopped giving narcotics scripts, the most there willing to give out is tramadol, or Tylenol 3 with codine. This rule doesn't apply to extreme cases. My oldest son broke his clavical twice and the first time they gave him vicodin the last time it was tramadol. They told him if he needed something stronger to call his reg dr. There is no doubt, I do agree with them its a path that sometimes never ends.

This is what ticks me off, my sons friend has a cousin who broke his finger and it was severly stretched, . No doubt he was in pain, 2 years later and he is still on vicodin 10's 120 per month. Plus he gets gabapentin.


I was prescribed 5 mg fentanyl transdermal pain patch in place of Vicodin 7.5's 3 x daily for chronic/severe pain (cervical/lumbar/shoulder). Was really sick off this stuff from the get go. Then they switched me to Opana which was hell on earth to get off of. I truly felt like some junky in an alley somewhere trying to get this crap out of my system.

If your doctor is trying to get you off some of these high dose, narcotic meds, they need to do it professionally and not just withhold scrips as my IC did to me. You have been taking this stuff for so long you could end up going into cardiac arrest as your body seizes, and tries to adjust to not having meds on board. those with no designated father!

I know there are folks who are out there abusing this stuff. But for those of us who are labeled "chronic, moderate - severe pain patients," they need to stop the BS and follow a protocol for proper drug access and treatment with this class of drugs. I get urine screenings bi-monthly and come up clean (only prescribed meds on board) every time because I don't abuse this stuff. I need to work. I need to keep working. The only way I can do this is with these meds.
