Re: Subutex joint pain & tapering... Need help please!!
Welcome to the board. :-)
Buddy, I will give you my advice straight up... tell the doctor the truth, every last embarrassing bit of it. When we tell less than the full truth, we get less of the help we need. With full disclosure, the professionals have all the info they need to best plan a course of action for us.
I am 6 years plus, but to this day, I let any new doctor I see know clearly that I have tapered off all benzos and opiates. Only way to let him know how to best help me in pain situations and such. How much better he hears it from me versus seeing it in old medical records and such.
I wish you well and I wish you lots of courage to just spit the truth out at your doctor's visit (and to the anesthesiologist if surgery is needed).
Hugs and Hope
