I also posted a topic "Coming off the meds". It has been one week now, and I am tired, still have flu like symptoms, and feel sooo depressed. I know these are typical withdrawl symptoms, but it's just sucking the life out of me. The back pain is bad enough as it is, then coupled with all of these other things. I just don't know how much more I can take. :''(
I have an appointment with my PM doc March 10th. At that point he is re-examing me, and hopefully putting me back on my meds. He says he's doing this to make sure the Norcos weren't masking any other pain I'm having. I guess that makes sense, but looking at my MRI and X-Ray isn't enough?
Thank you for taking the time to read and post. I really appreciate it. Only you guys know how difficult this struggle is. I have friends, that despite the fact I tell them what the doc is doing, are like "great, good for you! You don't need those meds.". I don't even begin to try to explain it to them. Thank goodness my husband and kids understand.
