Heres some background ... i was on methadone for 8 years and recently became clean ( nearlly 4 months now ) and im so glad ive put this behind me
however the main reason for getting off methadone was due to a discomfort i had on the left side .... anyway to cut a long story short a MRI revealed ( after 14 months of tests ) i have 3 slipped discs ( 1 x thorasic at T6 and 2 x lumbar ) ...
now my doctor had put me on gabapentin and naproxen ( also buscopan ) .. but she has stated i wont be given any opioid based painkiller due to my previous methadone addiction,and if there one time in my life i need something stronger its now
personally i think im being punished for my wrongs ( my methadone addiction ) and i feel even though im off the methadone it will haunt me for the rest of my life
is my doctor right in refusing me strong pain relief and what (if anything ) can i do
luckily the gabapentin and naproxen take some of the pain away but why should others get pain releif and i dont purely based on my previous history
