Vicodin withdrawal leg pain

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin withdrawal leg pain

vicodin

Avatar m tn The worst of physical wd symptoms do get better after about 4 days, but it takes a while for your body to recognize real pain and rebound pain. The opiates knocked out your bodies natural ability to fight off pain naturally, so it takes a bit for your brain to balance out. Opiates can create rebound pain, meaning that when the pain comes back after the opiates wear off, the pain is more intensified. It can take a couple weeks or more to know where your real pain meter is at.
Avatar n tn My question is what are the symptoms of vicodin withdrawal. I have been taking 8 tablets a day for over a year. I know that doesnt sound like a lot to some people but for me that is quite a bit. I have been experiencing overall pain for quite some time. I would get prescriptions for vicodin(5mg...7.5mg and 10mg) also I would be get prescriptions for tramadol. I would use them the way I was supposed to and then stop when I didnt need them.
438868 tn?1207700684 I started off with Darvocet and advanced quickly to Vicodin. Once my tolerence built I was referred to a Pain Mgt. doctor. Then I was placed on Morphine, Fentyl (sp), etc. Fentyl made me very sick so I was not on that one for long. I was placed on a long-acting morphine. I took that every day for 1-1/2 years. I finally decided to stop. I called my doc and weaned as he said. He stated that I should have no withdrawal. What a lie. I was lucky to noi be working at the time.

Avatar m tn Since I have been off pain meds I am able to control my pain and have my life back while on pain meds the pain got worse and worse because I was fighting a losing battle because the real pain was there but my tolerance was so high and my mind kept wanting more and more and believe it or not your mind will make you hurt to get the meds.
Avatar f tn Hi~ I think you could just stop. I say this because I took Vicodin in Sept. for two months. I had broken my leg; a mess. After two months I just didn't want to take it anymore and I stopped. Nothing. I didn't even think about it at the time. It was not my DOC. You actually may feel a lot better!
Avatar n tn Again, while I hate to recommend ANY drug, I had fessed up with my doc regarding the vicodin (he was completely cool about it and well-versed in pain control and drugs), so we agreed on a small (15 tabs) non-refillable scrip of Xanax 0.5 mg for those Really Bad Nights. Be advised Xanax addiction is not only highly possible but also frought with real peril, so only do this under close adult supervision.
Avatar m tn Towards the end of my 5 weeks of radiation, my insides were burned to a crisp and it was EXTREMELY painful to go to the bathroom (#2). So I was prescribed vicodin or the pain. Well, I took it, but it didn't help with the pain. I stayed on vicodin (5mg) until my surgery. After my huge surgery I was brought back to consciousnous in EXTREME pain. They shot me up with a bunch of dilaudid until I woud quit complaining. So I am admitted to the hostpital for 6 days.
Avatar f tn Hey guys,trying to get my taper game plan up and running. Have anyone of you had severe psychotic mood swings, or leg zinging pain with withdrawals. Mine don't ache like the flu, they shake and tremor with severe nerve pain and then stop. i havent' even tapered yet. Want to know if this is a withdrawal symptoms or something else I need to look into.
Avatar n tn It only just occurred to me a few minutes ago that the nausea and digestive disturbance I've had twice in the last week could possibly be related to my Vicodin. Long story short: my leg was run over by my van 5 weeks ago today (I know it's insane!), and amazingly no bones were broken. There was, obviously, LOTS of bruising, swelling, PAIN, nerve damage, and I was off work for 3 weeks with my leg elevated.
Avatar f tn I got in a accident about 6mnths ago broke my arm fractured leg an pelvis leg popped out my pelvic so I started taking Vicodin well got addicted to them an now I'm withdrawal from them cause I stop taking them 39hrs ago.first day was hell all day stomach pain an that is my question. How long will this stomach pain last an how long before this is over?. I was taking 3-5 a day I weigh about 255-260 jus to give y'all an idea. Any answers will be helpful an very much appreciated!!!
Avatar n tn I slept well and when I first woke up, for 10 seconds, I felt no pain, no cravings, just peace, then the pain kicked in and what was worse a strong desire for a vicodin. So far tonight I am having a rough time. I started getting very emotional, depressed about my life and things that have gone by while I worked so hard for my family and the things I missed. This lasted for a half hour and it sucked but at least I wasnt thinking about pain or vicodin.
Avatar f tn My new Rheumatologist would not give me any any pain meds after being on Vicodin for 4 years BUT gave me a RX for Ultram. It didn't touch my pain but made me unable to urinate, a side effect for some people. It is in my opinion a useless drug that does more harm than good. Good luck to all.
Avatar m tn Percs make me feel depressed. Vicodin does not do that. I am a pain patient. This may sound counter intuitive but oxycontin acts longer with getting a less addictive buzz or high like one does on vikes(hydrocodone). The war on pain patients is a cruel broad brush that punishes people in pain along with addicts. Addicts do "kitchen chemistry" with oxycontin to get a fast release that is very addictive.
Avatar f tn I commented on your post on the SA forum before I saw this. I have a long history in pain management and found the withdrawals for me lingered because I tapered. As long as you're taking the Vicodin, you could experience some kinds of withdrawal. For sleep, Alteril is an all-natural product that works great. Melatonin works for some as well. For the leg cramping, try high potassium foods like bananas or potatoes. You can also try Hylands' Restful Legs.
Avatar f tn My doctor a year later completely took me off the Tramadol and replaced it with Morphine ER with Percocet for break through pain and I had no withdrawal symptoms from stopping the Tramadol at all!!! By the way, when I stopped the Tramadol completely, I was taking the same amount as you per day. The amount of Fentanyl you are on is stronger than the starting dose of Morphine that I was on when I stopped taking Tramadol.
178107 tn?1315947630 t bad at all and I feel like my old self again. The arthritis pain is a fraction of what it was, as is the leg pain. It is back to bothering me mostly at night. I'm going to begin other treatment modalaties at the pain clinic to deal with that. The doctor was so right; the narcotic made the pain so much worse.
Avatar n tn looking for non script sleep aid for first week of vicodin withdrawal. my experience has been inability to sleep, frustration and lots of sighing and leg movement. within a week i am ok.

1295973 tn?1279756268 I recently got off pain killers i was taking vicodin for leg pain/back pain and was also perscribed a couple days ago percocet for my back but i have stopped taking any pain meds. I was on vicodin since april of this year and recently ive been having huge migraines that dont seem to go away, feeling weak, rapid heart beat that feels kind of fluttery and sweating ... what could be the reason why i have been feeling like this?
Avatar f tn 2 weeks ago I had steroidal injections in my pelvis and asked for something stronger because the tramadol wasnt working. I only take the vicodin at night, but it doesnt get rid of the pain. I tried a few times to not take it, but when I dont I get very restless and get a bad headache. When I take it the heafache goes away within 10 to 20 mins and the restlessness goes awau too. I dont want to take pills all the time, I already have a bad liver from a previous surgery.
Avatar f tn I have been prescribed all these drugs including the vicodin for a botched broken leg/ankle surgery resulting in nerve pain. However, I generally just stick to the vicodin and rarely use the others. I just desperately want off the vikes as my tolerance and use has reached 8 to 10 pills a day of 10/325 and sick of drugs. Just want to be clean for the first time in 4 years. but I do not want to enter a detox program or start suboxene or ever use any other sort of narcotic.
Avatar f tn i am 78 yr old female who has severe arthritis, severe back pain, scoliosis, bulging discs and so much acute back pain i can not. walk wthout vicodin 10/325 every 4 hrs. i take 4 a day and have been on it for 10 years. i have had 10 or more steroid inj. into spine with some relief but the last two gave me terrible headaches, relieved by nothing. i had ct scans of head and sinuses, no problems there. my back pain is gone since last fri.
Avatar f tn You will have issues with pain for awhile after that. Take something non narcotic. Find other alternatives for pain management. I had issues with pain and lack of energy. Once I went through the physical aspects of withdrawal, I didn't have anxiety. I knew I would never take another one, and I didn't even crave it any more. The lack of energy (probably had a lot to do with the fact that I didn't eat right, didn't take care of myself) lasted longer....
Avatar n tn because they are very addictive on their own but if you do get any to take and they do help try and take them no longer than a week because you do not wanna be hooked on benzos you think withdrawal from pain meds are bad,,,withdrawals from those are not only bad but VERY dangerous.
Avatar f tn I have a herniated disc l5-s1, I have been on tramadol 2-50mg pills every 3-4 hrs due to the severe pain and vicodin as needed when therapy got really painful, the dr told me to take 2 pills but failed to change it in the computer now I'm cut off till 2 weeks from now . I'm in chronic pain and have about 25 vicodin left. I'm worried about the withdrawl symptoms from the tramadol.
