As some of SWIM's friends on here know, I am a pain sufferer. He deals with daily pain. I had aproblem once with the heavy opiates like Hydromorphone, Oxymorphone, Fentanyl, and such. So he strays away from the potent narcotics. I have 4 plates in his arm and a pin in his shoulder.The pain is also a type of pain that isn't persistant for all 24 hours of the day, but is present everyday. It just depends on the day, some days I need to take pain medication all day long, and some days he only has to take one dose. But it does flare up atleast everyday, and is unbearable:cry: when it does, which is why a chronic type opioid medication is not needed, and breakthrough pain medications are more suitable. Right now I do not get sick if he doesn't take his pain meds, because he doesn't take them all day long everyday, as said before, some days are better then others. The medications listed are what I have access to, and everything else is out of the question. Thanks.
