Thank you all so much for your responses.
You all offer such good information and HOPE. Sorry so slow to reply. I just typed like 2 paragraphs and hit quick reply and lost it all...oh..well start again, learning my way around.
Angel ~ so good to meet you ! our stories are very similar.I will check out the fibro site, you said you stay on there. Will have to find out what that is. I would love to stay on a low dose of subutex daily, because it STOPS the craving, and the pain and helps the depression. I am currently prescribed 2 8mg tabs a day, I usually only take one. I break into quaters because the taste is nasty. The only problem I have had is almost daily I experience moments where I feel I will spin out of control. I breathe through it, take a brisk walk and or meditate (have learned a couple chants) and I pray alot. That's nothing to what I know I would feel like off of it! Last week it really esclated 3 days before Thanksgiving and 2 days before I trained for a new job and I did not sleep fo 3 days, finally called dr wednesday and they called in ambien. I slept 7 hrs straight the next night. And have taken every night since . I think I am gonna try and sleep without it tonight. I hope we stay in touch and I wish you the best.
SOS 007 ~ if you have not seen a dr yet, I will help you find one. Here in fla either Internal medicine or a suboxone dr (they can write script for subutex also)YES it will control he pain. As begalman posted how is mother has curvature of the spine and degeneration of spine, I have that also. I am unsure how long subutx has been around. Ask all the questions you want, looks like you got answers already. I will check my email more often.
ALL of your posts have raised my spi*** and given me hope already. Hopefully I can return the favor. Have a great Monday!
