Hi There are several possible causes of all over body aches. One could be lack of Vit D, Low Iron, low thyroid... Have you had yours checked ?
Also in your case since you were on hydrocodone for a long period of time it could possibly have lowered your Magnesium stores.
Taking Vit D3 and Magnesium oral supplements would help but it would take a few weeks to build it up in your system.
One way to help speed it up is to soak in Epsom Salt (another form of Magnesium) bath for 20 to 30 minutes in the warmest water you could tolerate. It will relieve body aches and pain and also afford very relaxing and rested sleep.
In addition you could also use Magnesium spray when or if you don't have time to do tub soaking. You can use the spray as often as you want.
Magnesium will help many other health issues. Also balance Mg intake with Calcium enriched foods. Please search on Magnesium Deficiency.
Preferred Mg supplement: Magnesium Glycinate. Take it as it says on the bottle. Avoid the more common Mg Oxide > this kind causes loose stools.
Ask your MD for permission to take Mg if you are taking other medications.
Hope this helps.
THANKS! I will read about Mg def and I am getting my
labs tested on Wednesday. I hope I start to feel better soon!
you could still be going through withdraws i know sometimes it takes a while for your body to adjust but give it time it'll go away if it's that I bet you are having haedaches as well hope you feel better soon if it is withdraws then you will good luck
I would think you would be past the worst of the withdrawals at this point but it is possible that's at least part of what's going on. Also, when pain medication is stopped after using it for a while, it is very common to get rebound pain. Rebound pain will settle down after some time and then you'll know what your pain level is really at. These are all some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia and if things don't clear up, you may want to look into this.
