Not surprising. I remember having mild stomach cramps about a month and a half ago. Had a small session with my friends, and the pain was gone and stayed gone for several hours.

I suffer from neuropathies, due to a spinal injury I suffered, and exacerbated by diabetes. I'd be willing to be a study subject. While opiates provide some relief, they turn the contents of your intestines into bricks.

I always had the same problem when using Tylenol 3's, it's the codeine that stops you up. Since I've graduated to Oxycontin I've had no intestinal problems at all. As for smoking the occasional doobie, it works on a short term basis, but after a couple hits, who gives a damn anyhow! :wink:

The asswipes here won't give prescriptions for T3s. You could of had serious surgery where they had to use ketamine to knock you out, but once released...extra strength tylenol is all you can hope for. That being said, you can get OTC cough syrup loaded with codeine, or ask for ativan and valium without a srip.

Shep, don't know if this will help, but have you ever tried Gabapentin . It worked for my pain for quite a while, but I had to go to Oxycontin when I maxed out on the dosage.

Oxy leads to Dilaudid if your not careful. Watch the opiates they can become more of a burden then they are worth.

They've tried carbamazepine(tegretol) and various anti-depressants, which only caused me severe withdrawl(brain twitches, dizziness and PMS inextremis) when I stopped using them, because they were doing SFA. Cervical radiculopathy(I cracked a vertabrae -C7, playing football in highschool), peripheral neuropathies and rheumatoid arthritis in my shoulders and hands all make medicating a little challenging.

Already been there, they tried me on hydromorphone a couple years ago, didn't really help so they started me on the oxycontin.

I can 100% confirm that it will help with your back pain. It doesn't kill it, but it sure takes the edge off of it.

To AM: I had a couple of female buddies that ONLY smoked weed at "that" time of the month. They swore up and down it helped with their cramps. I believed them because neither of them would smoke it at any other time.
