Hi all sorry I haven't been on for a while. Everything has been crazy. I fired my PM doctor and the wicked witch once I found a PM facility that offers so many services. Aqua therapy, accupuncture, pain clinical psychology, and more.
My PM dr wants to change one med at a time and see if he can get my pain under control. With Opana ER and Percocets I was still in a ton of pain. I'm fine with changing one at a time; if we did 2 we wouldn't know what was doing what.
Anyway, I'm on the med board to ask a question (or two) about the one med we just changed. The PM dr took me off Opana ER and Percocet and put me on Methadone. He said some patients are fine with just Methadone while others still need Percocet and he wants to see how I do with just Methadone.
Since I started the med on Friday, I have had a non-stop headache; the intensity will increase and decrease throughout the day but it's always there. Plus my poor stomach. I make sure to eat something with the med but my body still doesn't like it. Nausea, stomach discomfort, and some diarrhea (TMI sorry). Basically I have felt horrible 30 minutes after I took the first one. I will talk to my dr.
I don't want to be the patient that won't give it a try but I can't do anything right now and still have break-through pain. A front is moving through where I live and that always pushes my pain up higher.
Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences or personal information. I know we're not doctors. I just wonder if I'm the only one that has gone through this.
