| | can opiates cause IBS???
Throughout ten/fifteen years I've had muscle pains, aches, etc and no one could find out what it was and it got so bad. I would take enormous amounts of ibuprofen everyday three at a time for years, then, three years ago my pain doc put me on opiates, first percocet then vicodins and now my stomach problems have worsened to the point I'm worried it may have caused cancer because my different symptoms sounds like it but am too scared to go to doctor to find out. I know that's stupid, but, I've got enough bad stuff happening right now in my life, last thing I need to be told is that I have cancer..... with NO insurance. what's your take on this?
