It sounds like you shouldn't be going through this hell by your self. Becomming addicted to prescription medication isn't something to be ashamed of. It can be common on lomg term therapy pain medication.
There are ways to become more comfortable, so you should seek a physician. Do not feel ashamed. Atleast you know you have a problem. The worst thing you can do for yourself is to stop prescription meds with out the help of your doctor. Your doctor would help ween you in a way that is most comfortable for you. I don't know how long ago you posted, but I hope you found some one to help you.
Never stop prescription medications again, on your own.
Talk to your doctor.
