I am not shutting out what you have said about pain relief and the Mayo Clinic. Sounds like an excellent program if you can do it. I have a question that some one may be able to help me with. It is away from the original topic, but does fit into pin relief. First, I am 73 years young, as I like to say. I have pain due to fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, back pain. I have been taking percocet 7.5 for 5 years. This is prescribed by my pain management doctor. I was referred by my primary care physician. I also take 0.5 klonopin at night, 50 mil Elavil at night for fibromyalgia pain and sleep issues. In the morning I take 37.5 Effexor for depression. I have a medical marijuana card and use 1/2 dropper mid morning 15-1 (very low THC). Okay. Question. I fall asleep easily at night but then wake 2-3 times and by 5-6 I am so anxious body feels like it is burning from the inside so depressed I feel like I can't do this. I have tto leave a nice warm bed because I feel like my body is on the verge of exploding. I get up, shower, have a piece of toast and start feeling somewhat normal. I take a 1/2 of percocet because I am in pain, have a cup of coffee, get on the computer, and feel ok. I lost my husband 1 year ago and have many emotions which gets me more depressed and anxious. So, what's the question, right. Do you think that I am going through withdrawal from the percocet.? I take 3 pill a day and none after 6 pm because I take the 0.5 klonopin later and know benjo and opiods do not go together. The doctor didn't THINK so but I am concerned fearing I am that dependent.
