My name is Ed and I found this forum while I was looking up info on Suboxone, which I've been on for a while now for pain relief, not addiction although I think everyone understands that its quite normal to become physically addicted to pain meds when used for long periods of time. I was on many other narcotics in the past and they work for a while but I seem to build a tolerance to meds very quickly and I don't want to be eating pills every couple hours in order to live a normal life.
I was in a motorcycle accident years ago that left me pretty much crippled. I healed to the point of walking with a limp (and a cane) but was never normal after the wreck. Before the accident, I was a building contractor and ran 3 crews of men and now I'm on disability and have a hard time carrying groceries in from the car.
I'm sure there are many on here who can relate and I'm looking forward to hearing how others deal with chronic pain issues and what medications work for them.
