: Hey all. I am 30 and in pain management treatment for severe chronic pain due to several diseases, and I am on several medications, including the pain killer oxycontin. My worry is this; when I am in more pain, I take more medication, therefore, I run out of the meds early. I have been told in other places that I am just not receiving adequate pain relief. Any opinions? Thanks.
Kimberly: what diseases?, how much oxycontin/day?, what strength? Have you considered a possibility that you are developing an addiction? Narcotics are THE WORST way to treat chronic pain and conditions.
