Question Strange Fentanyl Patch Side Effect

I have noticed that when I put the patch on my right upper arm that my muscles start to ache and hurt. I tested the theory by putting the new patch on my right arm last night and sure enough this morning my muscles were aching and hurting above and below the patch. I moved the patch over to my left arm and do not have this reaction. I know it is a rather strange side effect. Has anyone else on the patch had this kind of reaction?

I am still titrating down on the Ultram and maybe it could possibly be some mild withdrawal. Any comments?

Brian

Re: Strange Fentanyl Patch Side Effect

Yes, I too had this same reaction when I was using the nicotine patch to quit smoking cigarettes. I don't know what it is either but at least I know now that someone has experinced the same kind of effect. I'm not crazy, or am I?
