Vicodin joint pain

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin joint pain


Avatar f tn What are you guys doing for headaches joint pain etc... I have a job and a house to keep. I also take care of my 20 yr old autistic son who is so wonderful. When I have this terrible pain I can't get out of bed and I can't walk on my right leg. I am not thrilled about pain meds but if I am suffering I will take them. I tried to be tough but I couldn't do everything at once. Thoughts??
Avatar f tn I wasted years with an orthopedic treating my MCP joint with coritsone injections and Vicodin. I finally went to a hand surgeon. Long, long story short, had the joint replaced, giant failure, nine more surgeries and the pain is worse than ever. I have essentially no function with that hand now. Find a top-notch doctor/surgeon and find out your options and research them. My doctor was terrific; unfortunately, the implant used failed across the board. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I have chronic pain, I had surgery for severe tennis elbow in 2007, now I have developed arthritis in the same elbow, my ortho doctor has me taking Vicodin 5/500 twice a day, can this become an ddiction?
370181 tn?1595629445 Taking Vicodin is masking the pain but not doing anything to stop the joint and tissue damage caused by the disease .
2048234 tn?1330814100 What the heck is this?? Some of you know I had my appendix removed. I was able to finally come home today. They had me on dilaudid in the hospital and since being home I have achy pains in my wrist and ankles as well as the surgery pains. I told them about my battle with vicodin so they sent me home with Valium. Does that make any sense what so ever? The Valium just makes me feel icky and I'm wondering it the annoying joint pain is from my brain telling me I am having withdrawals.

Avatar n tn How long does it take subutex to ware out of your system so i can take vicodin for pain because am terified!
284208 tn?1292855519 I have been in a corset and brace since then, and have taken Vicodin. I am recovering slowly, going to physical therapy 3x/wk. I tried to stop taking the Vicodin, and found myself with shaking hands, headache, nausea. I assume this means my body has become dependent on the Vicodin. I am trying to taper off of it now. Do you have any suggestions that will help me to get through this? How long should it be between intervals of lowering the dose?
Avatar f tn ve found that none of these narcotic pain meds help much with the joint pain, not like they do with the nerve pain from the spinal damage. The NSAIDs that I took before I knew I had HCV helped a lot more with joint pain than the narcotics do. But that may just be me.
Avatar m tn I was precribed darvocet for joint and back pain,Can anyone recommend a better pain med without the acedamedafin(sorry for the spelling)Ive been taking darvocet for 7 years and its not working anymore
Avatar m tn With these is also a constant headache, low grade body aches, tingling sensations in head and limbs, rare migraines some abdominal pain, some joint pain, electrical like feelings all over first thing in the morning, anxiety and fatigue and then the occasional actual meniere's attack. 1 time I actually passed completely out, cracking my head open and having to get 5 staples in the back of my head.
Avatar f tn The PM doc called in Vicodin for me on Wednesday.Even though I told her I was in a lot of pain, she called in Vicodin 5/500, ONE twice a day! She said she talked to my PCP and he told her that Vicodin made my depression worse. He has never said that to me and although I know that is a possibility, I find it very strange that he has never said that to me. We have an excellent relationship as I have been seeing him for over 10 years.
1930941 tn?1400107522 I am very happy to be clean but I am suffering terribly from joint pain in legs and headaches. I take Advil for joint pain and if the headache is bad I take Excedrin. Does anyone know when this might subside? Is excederin safe for me to take? Any help is greatly appreciate. I am female and 41.
1024532 tn?1380058352 Gave me a shot in joint of cortizone and I had bad reactions and still swollen and red. I went to ER Monday and they gave me Vicodin for pain. Has anyone else had similar symptons and still negative results on blood work for rhmeutoid arthritis? Any help would be appreciated. I have been to 5 doctors now. I have not worked for 2 months. Have checked my only kidney as well.
250701 tn?1320974765 Just hope I don't wake up with pain in every joint in the morning. Told my doctor how bad it hurt and he just gave me pain pills.
Avatar n tn It is a non narcotic pain reliever used for long term pain treatment alone or in conjuction with vicodin or other narcotic pain relievers. It usually has acetaminophen in it so don't take tylemol with it. It is non addicting also. Hope this helps....
Avatar n tn I'm allergic to codeine. I'd been taking vicodin, then norco. now i'm having itching and anxiety when i take it. Any suggestions? I'm seeing my Dr. Monday..this is Friday. Thx!! I also take lyrica, trazodone (RLS), celexa, synthroid. I have degenerative disc & joint disease, injury to coxica & sciatic joints and severe fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn vicoprofen is similar to vicodin, both have hydrocodone, but it has ibuprofen instead of tylenol. I was on vicoprofen ( 2x daily) for joint pain throughout most of tx and it was prescribed by a hepatologist. For me, it worked beter than vicodin. I don't think I could have made it through tx without it.
Avatar f tn it sounds wierd for me to be talking to me abput me because i use this site for my brother, but i have been put on oxycotins, dureguseic patch, yhen they wanted to put me on the morphine pump and i went to un west virginia and they did radio freq abl on my si joint i had no pain for 3 months but also had no feeling, sothat lead to si joint bone fusion in both side and i also have scolisis now i'm in severe pain but i have it under control w/ 4 10 lotabs a day. have you tried lortabs?
1930941 tn?1400107522 Also hot baths/showers can help alleviate pain - but even better would be a bath w/epsom salts. Those are really good for joint pain - athletes use that all the time for joint and muscle pain. And most importantly CONGRATS on the 27 days!
371980 tn?1276740809 the worst of it is the joint pain. I have pain all the time in my hands, wrists, knees and back. My RA bood work comes back negative but with my history and family history of RA they treat me as if I have RA anyway. My question to all of you is this, and I am going to be totally honest, I take meds for my arthritis and my doctor also has been giving me Vicodin for the pain for about 3 years now.
Avatar n tn t even think twice about taking vicodin for renewed energy. I was taking the medication for extreme joint pain I have due to an autoimmune disease. So I began this journey with a good intention of helping myself but it quickly downward spiralled into something that made me feel like I wasn't even myself anymore. I want to feel again! I want to be social again and stop isolating myself. I really want this to be the last time I try to get off of this medication.
Avatar n tn The presence of a click may suggest that the joint may be dislocated. This causes inflammation that may refer pain to the cranial structures causing headaches. I know this is frustrating but other causes of headaches have to be ruled out first before one can say that you are suffering from benign migraines.
Avatar f tn The bad news is that it is caused by the additional movement the upper neck is forced to perform. I am now taking Vicodin 3-4 times a day with minimal relief, but I do not want to become a zombie. These make me tired as it is. I can do nothing without increasing my pain in the neck and shoulders and terrible headaches. I discussed with my neurosurgeon my options and I am not happy with what I have heard.
Avatar n tn I have also heard that joint pain and muscle pain are other indications. I do have rheumatoid artritis and some of your symptoms (jaw problems and joint pain) are somethings that I deal with. RA diagnoses is a very simple blood test and it maybe be worth checking out with your doctor. Again, I'm not a physician and am coming at this from my own personal experience. I wish you the very best and hope you get through this with a minimal expense and with positive results.
Avatar n tn I am having a very hard time sleeping with maybe just a couple hours off sleep a night. Muscle and joint pain in my arms and legs is driving me nuts. So hard not to take a pill to get rid of the pain but so far so good. I have been weaning myself off of them and am down to 1/2 pill a day and will completely quit in two more days. I never want to go through this again! Any advice? I did not know insomnia was a detox symptom. Anything you can do to relieve aching muscles and joints.
469210 tn?1219188128 Everyone has a different pain threshold. It would be difficult to say what over reacting would be unless a person has very little pain and is taking a narcotic simply because they like the high. The first couple of weeks I had terrible back and neck pain and joint aches. Tylenol wasn't touching it. I called my doc's office and explained the situation but they would not prescribe a narcotic. Told me to continue taking tylenol.
Avatar m tn I am in constant pain, the vicodin helps me deal with the pain, I take 6 per day. My question is will I go through withdrawls if I stop taking it and will it be dertrimental to my health with all of my other problems?
