Hi all
I am the person who accidently overdosed and was in hosptial a month.
I am having nerve pain so bad I sit and cry allot, not sleeping, there is no position that I can sit or lay that brings relief. I have spasms, tingling, my legs, thighs, hands, feel like they are on fire and i cannot stand nothing touching my skin. my joints are swollen and hurt (ankles, fingers, wrists) I take morphine for other pain but it is not touching this pain at all. I am impossible to live with because of this pain. I may be in renal failure so I am not sure if this is because of that. someone please help

Dear Skeeter,
Please, please call your doctor or go to the E.R. tonight. If you're in renal failure that is very serious! I can't remember all the details of your history, but being hospitalized for a month means you had some serious medical issues.

I am so sorry to hear of your pain. I'm not sure what you've tried or who you've seen, but it certainly seems that something ought to help more than what you're currently taking. Yet you may likely not be pain free, as most of us aren't. Keep searching for that doctor who will help you, but for the immediate future get some medical help to make sure you are not in renal failure! We can be here for support but we can't provide your medical care for you.

Please, get some help tonight!

ITA with PaLady,,,
Skeeter go to ER and take someone with you to witness your treatment.
As for renal failure are you taking tons of Advil to compensate the removed pain meds? I did this and I am now told by my GP not to take any Advil, just take the baby asprine that he has prescribed me. I guess some meds go threw the liver and others the kidneys.
Bless you and please keep us posted.

I remember that you were worried that you would not be allowed to continue your morphine after the accidental overdose, but that was before your follow up with your doctor. I take it your doc must have approved it, but it sounds like that just isn't really working for you. With the amount of pain you are having and especially if you think you may have renal failure, you do really need to see a doctor. PLEASE go to the ER. If I remember right, you are married, so have your hubby take you right away!

Hi Skeeter, I feel for ya,  I too have nerve pain that brings me to tears, constant burning aching, relentless pain aggravated by everything and relieved by nothing.  Mine is only in my foot and up my leg so I can only imagin the agony you must be in.
Pain pills, are a joke for this kind of pain, so I want to encourage you and anyone else who has similar pain, if you have the facilities available, go to the local pool, indoor and heated is best.  It is the only thing that gets me moving reduces the swelling and allows my muscles and joints to move normally in a regular walking postion.  I cant walk on the bottom most of the time but I wear a belt and walk in the deep end.    When I started going I walked in on a cane and could hardly make it poolside, but after a few weeks, I was able to leave the cane in the car.  Another helpful thing and it hurts at first, is the steamroom.  If oyu have it available at your local community center or healthclub try it!  It kind of hurts during but just 10 minutes and it gets my blood circulating and makes the injured limb sweat which it cant do in its own cause of the nerve damage.  Afterwards for an hour or so I have the most relief I ever see.  The pain always comes back the burning stinging agonizing pain that air blowing on even hurts, BUT the relief I get for an hour or so after I leave  is precious.
Good luck to you.

I agree with the group that ER is for you.
I have nerve pain. Opiod meds don't do it much good. Methadone helps quite a bit.
The nerve pain I have is in my back. Mine itches. Doc told me to take Benadryl or
Zyrtec OTC, for that kind of pain. (It sounds like a joke. I think Benadryl makes
you real sleepy and that wouldn't be good for me with Methadone. Docs can be
When I get that horrid itching thing, I lay down on my bed and get as comfortable
as possible. At this point, I just ACCEPT the pain. I breathe slowly and listen
to a novel on CD. I kinda hypnotize myself this way. It's a way of melting into
the softness of the bed. (I know it sounds impossible for you - just something to
try AFTER you get back from ER.
For Heaven's sake, let us know how you are doing.

Hey Skeeter,

Just wondering, what symptoms do you have that make you think you might be in renal failure?  You can usually tell if there is a bad problem if you have trouble urinating, there is extremely limited output, and what urine there is is usually very dark in color(kidney's not filtering well).  Does this sound like what you are experiencing?  Renal failure can be lethal in a very short period of time, so if you think this is happening, go to the ER immediately...do not pass go, do not collect $200(ok, lame Monopoly reference).  IN ALL SERIOUSNESS...get help NOW!!!  Please update us as soon as you can.  I know we will all be worrying about you.  Take care.

I love your post. I have used the meditation and self hypnotises. There are so many out there on my space. Not advertising just informing anyone interested in a easy way to access. I click on videos and then search meditation and so many hits come up. I also use DVDs and Cd's. Working out in the pool is a wonderful treat if we only could do this in our homes or safe spots. To be honest I cant even hook my bra let alone put on a swim suite without my husband or mothers help. It think this is sick and wrong but it appears that the ppl who are ill are also without extra income, ability to drive, dress and use public recreation. It doesn't take me much to just give up. I am weak these days and to go up hill and get stomped on 24/7 is depressing, demeaning and embarrassing. Just my personal experience over the past years. One more thing... To get my hopes up and give 100% to something I just know will help me and continue to strike out/fail gets old real fast. I am rambling again.
TY for letting me vent AGAIN!
