  • I speak from experience.....be careful on this med! I was on an opoid for chronic pain for other reasons for years. It actually increased my pain overall and I lived in a fog for about 7 years. My Dr. encouraged me to try to get off of it. So I did. I went through 3 weeks of withdrawals, I did this at home. It was awful, but I have my life back now! I felt like I was in a fog all the time. I was tired all the time! Just be careful. Have you gotten any second opinions??? Minimally invasive surgical options?? Just asking.....
