I was prescribed Dihydrocodeine for arthritis and after taking the tablet I experienced severe pains in my upper abdomen like contractions. This lasted for 3 hours and hurt like hell so I decided not to take another.
A few weeks later my arthritis was so bad I decided to take another tablet so I could get a good nights sleep. Oh how wrong I was!
I took the tablet at 11pm and awoke at 2am with severe contractions in my upper abdomen again. I vomited and after hours of pain I went to A&E. They gave me anti spasm drugs and morphine through IV.
The spasm lasted for 7 hours and I was in the worst pain immaginable.It was worse than childbirth. It was a pain mimicking gall bladder contractions but I have had my gall bladder removed over 2yrs ago.
The doctors disagreed that Dihydrocodeine caused the spasms.
I wonder if anyone else has experienced this type of sympton with Dihydrocodeine.
I will never ever take it again! That you can be sure of.
