My experience

For all you guys out there who are coming off long term opiate use please go and get your testosterone levels checked.After 8yrs of methadone use I kicked that s--t  and I thought the way I was feeling was due to that but it wasn't my free testosterone was 48  which is very low so I got on androgel and it helped me a lot but now that I'm back on oxy because of the injuries I recieved in combat I'm afraid that I'm going to end up in the same predicament. These injuries aren't going away nor will they. I just don't know what to do or how to go about doing it you know any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE to our country!!  Look on the Brightside!! Your off methadone at least right?? This is a really tough one because you have such intense pain! Sometimes their is nothing you can do about it. Do you take them as prescribed or do you run out?? I don't know anything about the testosterone (obviously) lol but that information really help someone.... It's great to see you posting when you have questions or just need encouragement!  Quick question on the 1-10 painscale how much pain are you in without any meds?
