I'm so frustrated! I am now taking the 50 fentanyl patch & it seems like it doesn't work. I mean it does a little, takes care of the hand & feet pain/acheyness, but, the neck & back pain is still there. Also, I'm having increased leg pain. Am I crazy or what, shouldn't this stronger dose work better? I'm afraid to call my GI again & complain its not working, please someone give me advice what to say to the GI. It seems like nothing works for me anymore & I can't stand the acheyness. Today, I slept until 4pm.
