I had another MRI last Fri. to see how I was healing up. Good news is everything looks really good accept fluid build up in one of my joints in my back. Now the bad thing is the pain in my back is still awful and 1,000 times worse going from my right cheek down to my calf and sometimes as far as the outside of my right ankle and wraps under my heel. I took myself off of my pain meds over a month ago because i was sick of them and my body had grown use to them (tolerance) and I did not want to go up. I also wanted to see where my pain level was at. Now since i have stopped them I forgot how much i really hurt. I went to the DR today and he read the results and said he doesn't know what to say and blames my pain on opioid induced hyperalgesia. This makes me pretty upset being that its been over a month since i took myself off and this is the same pain i had before I went on these meds. I still take my Lyrica and my wellbutrin but the leg pain is something fierce!!! The back pain is tolerable but not the leg. OIH which is definitely something that can happen I think but it should go down as your use of the opiates goes down. I am lost for words and am getting an injection on FRI. for the fluid build up but what about my leg does anyone know what it could be and has anyone had a normal MRI and had excruciating butt, leg, and foot pain. I can't live with this the rest of my life I am only 33 yrs old and have two kids to support and haven't even been released to work yet and it's been 2 yrs. Thank you for listening and I hope someone out there has a better suggestion than this DR that my WC sent me.
