From our forums: "Okay,my opinion,First-Vermon,thank you for all your advice,websites,your opinions,suggestions and just kind words.I,too,am a chronic pain patient.I've been on some sort of narcotic since 1995 due to RSD/CRSPS from a 'botched' ankle surgery.Currently I am prescribed Max6-10/325mgPerc & 4-10mgMethadone per day & I'm very near the point where they are not helping with the pain--at all.I wake in the morning and lay in bed,on the couch & wait for the evening bed time to come around again.I'm seriously in pain.When you say addiction,explain what that means.Yes I take narcotics & I think my body is at the point where what I take in a day just isn't enough,is my body just too used to this size/mg & my body needs more or am I addicted?These things confuse me.Like others on this forum,I'm afraid to 'discuss' different medicine options with my doc,who I've been with since Sept 1995,afraid that he will think that I just want more to get 'high'.I do not & don't think I ever have been 'high' on any of my RXs--Is that a good thing or bad thing? I'm thinking of discussing Opana's with my pain doctor,what is your opinion on Opana's vs percocet vs dilaudid vs methadone vs morphine vs fentanyl vs ETC? I really value your opinion&suggestions and would really appreciate a reply from you. Thank you again for your time and knowledge.It is appreciated by me. TakeCare,BeWell&StaySafe"
