Discussions that mention diazepam

Pain Management board

This may sound wierd. I have been taking hydrocodone for about 2 years for back/sciatica/cts (among other things) and diazepam for the sciatica. When I take a break from the meds the pain seems to almost go away, not completely, it's hard to describe. When I stop taking the meds for a couple of days I notice that I am able to get out of bed easier, drive further distances and generally be more limber and feel a bit better.

Anyone else experience this?
