i have tried to avoid the narcotics, but I do work with a pain specialist. I was wondering if you guys feel your better without the medications or that they work for you. To be honest without the narcotic pain meds I wouldn't be able to get out of bed, go to college each day, and then watch my nephew for 6 hrs after. My doctor says I have a paradoxial effect because I dont get tired on opiates. They actually give me energy and life. Also due to the bone degeneration from teh osteoporosis I wouldnt be able to stand with the vertibrae in my lower back always rubbing on each other. Just wanted to get peoples take on it. Like i said it gives me the energy to get a full day in and fulfilled. I know the addiction issues, but over time obviously have to take more and more but right now its working. I was on narcotics before and then detoxed myself to see if the pain medication was playing a role into the worse results and i was off them for a year and no change and that year i was in so much pain and not doing much. Thanks
