I am now 16 days clean from hydrocodone. I have been through detox and am now in outpatient therapy. I got started on the pills with a bad tooth and then with neck and arm pain. I have 2 bulging discs and spurs in my neck, I also have severe ulnar nerve entrapment in both my arms, along with severe endometriosis. So, needless to say, I have a lot of chronic pain.
I am on neurontin and baclofen, does anyone know if either of these are mood altering drugs? They seem to ease my pain a little.
There are some days that I am not in a 8 or 10 pain, but there are some days that are definately a 10. It seems that now that I am off the pills, all of my true pains are back. I am through the withdrawals, I am just having genuine pain now.
Will I ever be able to take pain med's again? Will I ever have the strength not to abuse them?
