Hi I am new here but was wondering if anyone else feels like their medication is playing mind games or something. I have had chronic pain for 4 years. At first I was in pain and just had to take them here and there, and now as my pain progressed I am now on them everyday allday.
When you start having pain you have to take pain medication for relief but after 4 years my mind plays tricks on me. I start wondering if I am really in pain at all or if I just need the medication. So then I try not to take it and I get in extreme pain and give in and realize I do need it. Then I start thinking maybe the medication itself is making me in pain, it is crazy...lol
Then I will start thinking again maybe I do not need them at all and if I would just excercise this would all go away so back to the gym I go. Then I come home crippled and have to lay down and cannot get up for the rest of the day. It is all driving me crazy and depressing me even more second guessing myself all the time. Does anyone go through this or am I the only nutty one??? lol
