Ok, I have a question. I have wiened myself of off my pain meds and I feel great but I am noticing some changes. The biggest one being my body temp. Since I am clean, I noticed that I am no longer hot all the time. My Husband used to complain that the house was always cold. I was always hot so I never turned up the heat. In the summer our electric bill was huge because I had the Air on all the time. Now that I am off the meds I noticed that I am cold. Which is natural because it is cold outside but I used to be hot all the time. I don't think I am still WD. I am through all that and I feel great. So my question is did the pills have something to do with that? My mother is on constant pain meds and she sweats horribly around the face. She is on a morphine pump and Oxy's around 3-6 40mg pills a day. She is an addict and abuses the meds. No doctor can explain the sweating. I am thinking it is the drugs. Any thoughts or experience with this.
While i used i had raging hot flashes all the time......many many a day......now that i have been clean i have maybe had 10 in 8 months(i am in meonapuse anyways!!) So yes i know what you are saying and yes i believe the pills had something to do with it. sara
While I haven't begun my wd yet , I wanted to put my two cents in...lol. I am always cold. I am presently taking between 12-25 percocet 7.5/325's a day. I am beginning suboxine on 1/19/09. I have noticed that I have hot flashes when the meds kick in. I snort them ,so I get a rush anyway. But when I was taking them orally and correctly ,I noticed the flashes of heat when they began to take effect. Now ,Im an ice box all the time.. I think it is how your body reacts personally to the chemical makeup of the meds u take. I think I would rather be hot honestly. Im always wearing an oversized hoodie over my shirts. Not the best fashion plate. lol. Best of luck to you in your endeavors. I will pray for u as well as myself.
