Hi, Can anyone help and advise me please, I am desperate, I am not coping with a fentanyl patch withdrawal from 50 mcg to 37 mcg 11 days ago. I have been on the fentanyl patch for just over 5 years but my reason for a reduction was because my severe pain and muscle spasms were getting so much worse on the day of changing the patch and all that night. I'm now suffering from this small withdrawal. I'm having more pain, muscle spasms and cramps, they have multiplied, I have a continuous headache, my body and my joints are so painful. My flesh is hurting me, like I'm bruised. I feel sick, I've been sick. I've no appetite, I'm exhausted. I'm emotional, depressed and have negative thoughts. I had a failed major spinal operation a few years ago, I've been in constant pain for several years, that's why I'm on fentanyl. Can anyone help me please to understand the withdrawal and how long will I feel like this for, and how long will it take to completely come off of the 50 mcg patch. Are there clinics that can help me with the withdrawal. I just don't know which way to turn.
Im 62 years of age. I also have fibromyalgia, and I am in constant pain, and suffer from dreadful muscle spasms and cramps, which I take other medication for. Thanks to all.
