I'm a 35 year old with a neurological disease and I live in extreme pain..I recently lost some of my medication and I cannot see my doctor until the 15th which is 8 days away... I've never been without pain medication since I started taking it about 6 years ago...I'm on oxycodone right now but before that it was tramadol..the tramadol was my savior for about 5 years then it just lost its affect on me..I started on the oxycodone about a year ago and it still works wonders for my pain but I've not missed a dose since I started it..I'm terrified because I have to be off of it for 8 days the doctor will not see me anytime before my 30 day mark ..does anyone have any advice on how I should handle this withdraw or anything that will comfort me during this week of hell (View Thread
