   The pain want go away over night.  This pain killer is very addictive.  Used for 3 yrs. you may need to see a Doc. and tell him whats going on with Meds.  You might need a lower mg Med. to keep you from bad withdrawals.  Get in a support group NA. meeting.  You will hear others stories how they was able to stay clean this will help if you go and listen .One day at a time.  Let go let God or Higher power.    You can do it.
