Hi. Just wondered if any of you out there feel that you are probably addicted to some meds (for pain relief), but can't survive without them? I kind of feel trapped. I pop so many Imitrex and Fioricet, I feel like I might be killing my insides. I am honest with my neurologist, but he doesn't seem too concerned...he seems to think we'll find this great preventative "really soon" that will totally diminish my need for pain killers. Hah. Either I keep taking them and remain addicted and suffer from rebound and live a semi-"normal" life, or I clean out my system, stop all meds and am then literally in bed 5 out of 7 days per week. Which is worse. Am I shaving years off of my life by taking so much. My poor liver! agh!
Anybody have a similar thing going on?
