Today is day 30 for me and last night I was in terrible pain. I fractured my elbow about 2-3 months ago and since quitting hydro's I've been going to physical therapy to help with the elbow. They told me that my nerve is irritated and that's what causing my pain. I also started a new job which is very physical work and everyday this week I've been in pain when getting off work. I've been using ice, tylenol and naproxen but last night nothing was working. I have some darvocets and tylenol 3's and I was so close to taking one but I am so scared that taking one of those pills might make my withdrawals worse or the thirst for the vikes stronger. So I guess I'm wondering if anyone has an opinion about taking different opiates for pain. Seems like its like not a good idea to have any opiates what so ever. I never had a problem with those pills but I don't want take any steps back.... And part of me wonders if it's all part of my addiction, PAWS, making my pain worse?
Thanks to everyone on this forum, it's been key in keeping me clean!
Good luck to everyone in their struggles!
