(I re-read this and I am sorry about the length of it in advance!)
I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were about this since I can't seem to get a straight answer from any doctor, online resource, or anything else...
I am a 32 year old male, average build, below average health.
In February of this year I came off of 40mg x3 Oxycotyn and 60+mg Vicodin after being on them for about two years. It was the worst experience of my life and lasted nearly three weeks, but I prevailed. The only problem is, I feel like I have never been the same since then. Not mentally, physically.
I feel weak, tired all the time, I have no motivation, constant headaches, and my stomach is out of control. I have pain and diarrhea every morning 7 or 8 times and then don't go again until the next morning. I kind of feel like I am dying a little bit. I can barely make it through the day at work, so I can crawl into bed around 7 pm to wake up around 5 am! I can not live like this anymore. The doctor can't find anything wrong with me and thinks I am a hypochondriac.
I know already about depression, I have always had that, and I have already changed meds/increased doses so that isn't it. I never had any of these issues before, even when I was on the narcs for 2 years!
I almost feel like the withdrawals induced some kind of autoimmune response or something! I feel like hell, all the time, for no reason.
And I get actually sick now ALL THE TIME, like every two weeks I fall very, very ill with something, and it drags on for way longer then it should.
Has anyone been through this? *** is happening to me?
I used to be normal, even when I had chronic neck pain for two years I felt nothing like this!
I don't know what to do and I have exhausted all of my outlets and ideas.
