Avatar n tn I have had stiffness and pain ever since. I already had a spinal cord injury at c4. Will they be able to keep me on hydrocodone at night for the pain or is there something else they can give me.I also have my c1-2-3- collapsing.
Avatar f tn My pcp was prescribing me 120 10mg hydrocodone tablets/month for 14 months when she suddenly decided I needed to see pain management which I have currently been at for 3 months. Yesterday I went in to have my 2nd round of injections on my neck and without warning my dr changed my medicine from the 90 10mg hydrocodone per month to Buprenorphine 5mcg transdermal patches 1 per week for 30 days. I'm extremely nervous that this is not going to help me a d a little shell shocked to say the least.
Avatar m tn My question(s) are primarily about pain treatment for my neck and back. I will start with what happened, what I was given, what I'm on, and where I'm currently at. After sustaining Bi-Lateral wrist fractures i.e. (Left & Right Triquetrium, & Left and Right Styloid) in addition to a CV3 fracture, I was hospitalized for almost a year at Walter Reed Army Medical Center where I was to recover.
492921 tn?1321289896 I have bad discs in my low back an neck and my dr said that since hydrocodone is so addictive that it is not the first choice for pain relief and should only be given a few doses when nothing else works. He gave me a tens unit that I can use on my neck just not my low back and that helps alot, maybe you cang et one of those for furture pains. He will problable put you on something like ultram or tramodal as some of heard of it that is not addictive but persription.

2030686 tn?1351688548 I have been taking hydrocodone for multiple issues for almost 10 years. It doesn't seem to be helping much anymore and I need suggestions on something new to try. I don't want to go to percoset, because it works post surgery where morphine does not. Tramadol causes me to have seizures (they think) so it's off the table, and they gave me demerol for dental pain once but it did nothing. So I'm wondering if anybody has any suggestions on something new to try.
Avatar f tn Is the lab detecting minor amounts of hydrocodone -- then this is normal for codeine metabolism. But if it is detecting a therapeutic dose of hydrocodone, then its presence can't be due to the metabolism of codeine. Here's a reference for your doctor's use: http://www.wardelab.com/22-2.html#t1 I hope this helps. Best wishes with your pain management routine.
Avatar f tn I've been taking hydrocodone and tramedol off and on now for years. I am out of hydrocodone and my neck is so stiff and I have a lot of tension and nervousness. I also have lot of pressure on my eye. I really can't do anything. Do you think these are withdrawl symptoms?
Avatar n tn I've been in severe pain for 15 years, and it keeps getting worse. My doctor put me on Hydrocodone 10/660 about 10 years ago, and it has worked wonders and kept my pain level down to a 2 (scale 1-10). Now, I'm told she can't prescribe it for me anymore, and has cut me back to 10-335. I feel like I've gone backwards in time. I'm back to soaking me feet in ice water, and coating my feet with Capazation, just for a little bit of temporary relief.

Avatar m tn He had been addicted to pain meds for 18 years and his girlfriend decided to share her xanax with him. Needless to say, he didn't wake up the next morning. I know I will probably be needing pain meds after my surgery. I just hope the dr will give me what I know works for me. And I will only ask for a 30 day supply and no more.
Avatar m tn I have been taking 5 to 6 hydrocodone for over 2 years.....7.5/325. It started with post surgery shoulder and neck pain, but reached the point that I hadn't been without prescription pain medicine for so long that I really couldn't gauge my "real" pain anymore. I quit COLD TURKEY on Christmas Day 2012 and have had NOTHING but Advil since that day. I had every withdrawal symptom that I've seen described, EXCEPT.....oddly.....no intense cravings for the drug itself.
1305767 tn?1361192676 I do clench and grind my teeth at night, have for a long time. Sometimes I wake and my jaw and neck hurts so bad from it but the pain has always subsided within ten minutes. I also clench my jaw during the day and don't realized it until it starts aching.
Avatar m tn I suffer from neck trauma and whenever my neck is in extreme pain I get horrible headaches that go with it. I have been prescribed and taken Hydrocodone 5/500. It helps but however I do like the acetaminophen besides I don't like how my vision feels on it because it reminds me of that feeling of being on Tylenol.
Avatar n tn I also developed somehow a muscle spams around my neck aparently due to excesive coughing. The pain became the worst ever to the point of tears. The doctor prescribed skelaxin 800mg, it didn't help, then I added 400mg Advil.. The pain somehow got better, but still there. So Went for Motrin 800mg with Skelaxin, didn't help. So finally she gave a prescription of Tramadol 50mg.. it doesn't work. I don't what to do, I can sleep, I can't move my head, it's hard to drive.
Avatar f tn I started going to a clinic 7 days ago to seek help for Hydrocodone withdrawals. I had been on Hydrocodone for about 4 years and my new Dr felt Methadone would help. Day one they gave me 30mg. I could not function and I was very sick, vomiting, etc. I told them that was too high that I wanted no more than 10-15 mg per day. I was a little shocked at their encouraging people to take high doses and increase 5 mg per day.
Avatar f tn I am on hydrocodone for back pain. I happen to be 49 1/2 years old which puts me into menopause territorry; however, I have been prescribed ALL manner of drugs to combat menopausal sweating such as Effexor, Gabapentin, Bellergal etc... I'm beginning to think that the sweating has something to do with the hydrocodone....could this be true? I usually only take one or two a day, but have had to take the max prescribed of 4 a few times. Can anybody out there help me....
Avatar f tn I have had the same surgery done in Aug 07. I am still bothered with headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain and arm pain. And recently the numbness is returning. I cannot get the the insurance company to approve an injection of the facet joint, so I have been living on hydrocodone three times a day and not being able to do much of anything. Now I have to see the neurosurgeon again and I am afraid they will not refill my prescription for pain meds even though I cannot be seen until June 4th.
Avatar m tn Im a Fibromyalgia patient with severe body aches and pain bad enough for narcotic pain killers. I get urine drug tested every month when i go to get my prescriptions from a pain management clinic. I have tested positive for either Hydrocodone or Oxycontin the last 6 times I tested. I havent taken Hydrocodone in 5 years and Ive never taken Oxycontin. The dr doesnt believe me and Im probably gonna be released because of it. I cant make him believe me.
Avatar f tn m getting the run around. The neck pain I have lived with for years but the shoulder and gripping pain in my upper arm is really ugly. My shoulder hurts when I move it but the gripping pain around my upper arm (about half way between shoulder and elbow) feels live a red hot band squeezing my arm. It causes me to double over in pain and I have very little use of my left arm on most days. The hydrocodone does little to ease the pain.
Avatar f tn Do you take any anti-depressants now? I wasn't depressed when I started the medicine, which I take for pain, but I'd rather be in pain then feel the way I do. I through the Hydrocodone away and told my doctor to never give it to me again. I am not craving it, I just wish my zoloft would work like it had, but now I don't know if I have just messed up my system for a while. Depression or pain - I'll take the pain.
