Since 2002 I have suffered from, and my very being suffers from 24 hour a day migraines. It took me 3 years to get pain management. I was to the point of just ending things. My Doctor recommended a pain specialist and I truly believe he saved my life. I am on a high Morphin regimen and have learned to control my headaches. This is one situation where opioids saved a life. Have learned how much to take and when. I now have a normal life and my wife and I are raising our grandson.
