Hyperalgesia after opioid discontinuation.

Posted by collison @collison, Mar 18 4:24pm

I am now free after 23 years of prescription opioid use. With peripheral neuropathy in hands and feet, and spinal stenosis, I am suffering severe full body hyperalgesia. I get around as best as I can,
I am an 80 year old woman, my mind is sharp as can be. My doc's all know nothing about hyperalgesia. Even my very good neurologist. I thinl it's too new for the research to be active.
Its invisible to my friends and colleagues. It's awful, as I feel like I'm living this double reality. I've seen no mention of hyperalgesia on this entire site. Somebody? It's lonely!
