dropped in to validate the above post

Within a few days after my pump meds were changed from duromorph to hydromorph, catheter space infused, etc... The NIGHTMARISH agony delivered from this apparently well kept secret (my Primary even said, [quote], "SOD spasms from morphine medication has been debunked") was gone!

it's been 5 years and I've never experienced another one yet (after @ least 2 a day up to 5 days a week)

if you have no other better alternitives, try chugging a glass of ice cold milk (assuming u r not lactose intolerant)

very well informed board members here!

Re: Severe Abdominal Pain after taking Morphine Sulfate ER

I also have this reaction when taking any form of severe pain medication that includes any narcotic drug. Which was a problem for me when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2001. Instead of trying to kill the pain I set out to find out why I had this horribly painful, crippling problem. I spend many thousands of dollars and three years trying a myriad of treatments and I spent months researching on the internet and discovered that it is caused by acid body.

I then found an eating programme that cut out all acids, bread, pasta, potatoes, oils, all wheat based products and low carbs. I ate lots of animal proteins cooked in butter, bacon with the fat on, high fat yoghurt etc. Within weeks I started to feel better and along with procaine injections to almost 90% of my body I overcame the worst of the pain - without drugs.

There's a great book you might find useful 'What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia' - R.Paul St.Amand. Certainly helped me to understand how we get this problem. Hope this helps. Stay strong and determined, you'll overcome it. If you need any further information, please ask. Take good care of yourself.

Re: Severe Abdominal Pain after taking Morphine Sulfate ER

I've taken 60mg 3xday for a couple of years with 15mg oxy for breakthrough pain for about 2 years now. When I first got bumped up to the 60s I noticed the same thing. I thought maybe if I had something to eat it would help, and it did. And it still is the same way. If I eat an hour or two before I take it, but I don't eat something right after I actually swallow the pill, my stomach will lock up and the pain will last for like 20-30 minutes, and same thing at the hospital through an IV. It has to be something substantial though, not like 1 cracker. Try a hot dog, or bag of chips or something. That's the only thing that helped me bc there is another opioid called Opana that may work for you, but if you ever stop taking it, the withdrawals are documented as the worst. I don't take it bc it gives me headaches, and as long as I eat something with my morphine, I'd try it, but if it doesn't work, ask your Dr. About other medications. Some ppl take the Opana and it got rid of the need for a breakthrough medication also. But there are other ones like OxyContin too.
Let me know how it goes
