Vin, I am so sorry about your pain, your herx, your fevers and your anxiety --- this all sounds so horrible! Only 1 of the above sends me to the pits! I am glad you have a strong pain killer. But does this help your fevers and anxiety??
I am not familiar w/ nucynta. Did a quick look up and see that it's an 'opiod'. So, is this a form of codeine or more like opium? And aren't they one and the same? They come from the same flower, don't they, but what is the difference? Or am I wrong?
I ask because I like codeine, but have built up a tolerance to it and it will only help for about 1 day for me. So I have wondered what else I could take if I really needed something. So far, I have lots of pains, but fortunately not severe enough to require narcotics. (my last narc was recently, for very ruthless oral surgery)
Your situation sounds pretty desperate -- even if it's a herx, shouldn't you be contacting your Doctor?
Sooooo.... I thought I might be herxing a bit, but I have nothing compared to what you describe, just mental breakdown stuff, aches, and depression/anxiety.
Please keep us posted and please tell us know about the drug questions only when you are feeling up to it, OK?
