Well, the last 4 weeks have been really tough. 3 or 4 ha's a day, and at least 1 at night. My oxycontin, 80 mg/day, with percodan, 4 tabs thoughout the day, had quit working. I attribute that to the heat out here { West Texas }, and the fact that my AC in the car wasn't working. Went to the new doc and he started me on Neurontin, and it seems to be working. Hopefully I can reduce the Oxycontin and stop the percodan all together. Maybe I can get off everything but the Neurontin. But, I'll do what I need to do to keep from having more. I just can't take anymore. My other options have run out, and I'll do whatever I need to to keep from going through anymore hell. I've paid my dues, and personally, I don't care what it takes to keep me from the pain. I've been chronic for 4 years, although the worst has been under control for about 3 years. When I have just one, it seems like they've never been gone. I have no more space to allow any in. It's kinda like a jet with no more runway. Either fly, or crash. I support anyone's own protocol for aborting these things, and I wish the Medical community in this country would wise up and allow what is needed to keep people from hurting like we do. My heart goes out to ya'll that can't find relief due to your beliefs about pain control. I pray that your pain goes away. Just another clusterhead. JoJoC.RN
