Hello everyone, this is my 1st time on these forum's & website, so please forgive me if there is anything I'm supposed to do that I don't.
My problem is I have pretty severe back issues. I was a Fire Fighter and Paramedic until I was injured in the line of duty back 2002. I suffered multiple severe injuries, career ending injuries. I have L4-S1 Disc Herniations with Spinal Stenosis and Disc Desiccation. I also have Systemic Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid arthritis. I have been taking Norco 10/325 taking 1 q°4hr & Ultram (Tramadol) 50mg taking 2 q°4hr now for well over 10 year's. My Dr told me yesterday that with all these stupid new laws about pain medications a new one that is getting ready to be implemented is that anyone taking more than 1 kind of pain medication has to be re-evaluated by the Dr to change over to 1 medication only. So my Dr decided to put me on MS-Contin 15mg q°12hr. What I'm really worried about is if I will go through any kind of withdrawal from stopping the Norco & Ultram. And does this new medication have good pain management? Thank you, Kelly
