I am not new to this site and I read many post. I please beg not to post copy paste response of where to find and look for info. Im not perfect at navigating thru site. What I want though is my fellow chronic back pain friends on here to give me their thoughts of what I'm asking. Here goes. 4- 1/2 months ago I was prescribed methadone 5mg 1 @ 6x a day to replace oxycodone. I was on 30mg 2 every 6 hours. Now I started getting real intense anxiety with tightening of my upper neck shoulders and having anxiety attacks. Told Dr. And told me couldn't be the methadone. And I wasnt getting relieve past about 3-4 hours. So now changed methadone to 5mg 1 every 4 hours. To my surprise I went from an average 7-8 pain scale to I would say a 2-3 on pain scale for about 5 days. I hadnt had that score for about 10 years. I was so happy. So very happy I couldnt believe it. Well the fifth day was Saturday after Valentine's day.and my stress came back in my neck shoulders and pain is back at a 7 at least. Now I thought I had found the right key combos. I dont knoe I just wanted to do things interact with my family. I actually went to the mall. My close fam. And friends saw it in my eyes my look. Now for the past few days ive actually been thinking about going to E.R. becuase of pain. Anyone here think it could be coincidental on the way I have responded to med. Should I give it more time. Ould it be withdrawal from the oxycodone? I dont want to give up. I want to feel that no pain for a lil bit once again. Oh and the reason I posted on here not on pain meds section. Just seems no one really goes to other sites except this one. I apologize if I should have but I feel like chron ic pain trumps the med part. I see dr tomorrow and yes this is for dr. But I want any similar reactions suggestions. Opinionsm not aski g for diagnosis. Thank you.
