cant wait to get off all my pain meds; the stigma of a DRUGuser is almost as bad as the pain.NO ONE beleives you are really hurting.plus going to pain managment is like probation,pee in the bottle or no script. i am sick of begging like a dog for a bone. PASCO CO. is where i live and unfortunately it is the drug capital. Im sick to death of feeling like i have to PROVE myself. if i truly felt better i would gladly tell those drs. to shove it. i too was on high doses of fentyl now down to 25mcg but suffering alot of pain still. i just want off and to feel better too.i once qiute cold turkey but was real sick. increased pain,stomache pain,chills,diarrhea,leg cramps, yawning,the trembles. i am doing good @ 12mcg per decrease at a time.i want my freedom to live my lifestyle AND BE PAIN FREE.View Thread
