There is also the possibilty of rebounding from opiods (I forgot the real name for it), it's basically your brain convincing you're in more pain then there really is just so you feed it more narcotics. And they find that quite a good portion of people taking pain meds for pain suffer from this, more then half. the only way to find out if you have this is to stop pain meds all together for a period of time, which is what I'm suppose to be doing, and will do, cause my tolerence kept getting higher and higher with no pain releif at all. Well just a thought. Not saying that this is your problem, just naming a possiblity, and when I thought alot about
this, it made alot of sense, cause I was taking 60mg of methadone 3 times a day with absoutly no pain releif, and refused to go up and decided that this whole bussiness was stupid, I should of been dead from all the methadone I was taking, but instead I couldnt sleep or eat or do anything because of the pain.
