I have been on opiates for several years but just recently started on the ER versions. I began with 12mg fent patches but it wasnt strong enough. Then went to 25mg. Suddenly I developed hand pain. Every morning when I woke up my hands felt like they were stuck in a vice all night. I would have stretch and massage them and then the pain would taper off. Now since then I have also been to the chiro and they claim my hand pain is from discs in my neck. I had an MRI and it revealed only straightening and reversal, no herniations. My PM doc at first - said the hand pain is from narcotics but was willing to try a different kind. Since then I have been on Avinza and now Oxycontin..and there is no difference in my hand pain. I have tried to find a correlation online, but have been unsuccessful.
So I was wondering of anyone else on here has experienced anything like this?
Naturally I really hope this is something that can be fixed with the chiro and is associated with my neck rather than my meds.
Thanks in Advance.
