I've had CFIS for a mere two years but have been in a lot of pain recently. My doctor doesn't believe in using opioids for chronic pain. One day, I was in such pain, my mother, who has osteoarthritis and therefore, chronic pain, gave me 10 mg of oxycontin. It was wonderful. She keeps giving it to me. I know it's the wrong way to do things. But I'm having trouble stopping because it's the only thing that's ever worked. My question isn't about what I'm doing. I know it's wrong. My question is, why can't I have this drug? What is the harm? My mother's pain is chronic and her pain manager has no trouble with giving her the drug, though others have objected. I'm going a bit nuts, feeling like a bad person and a drug addict, but also unclear as to why on earth I shouldn't have this drug that makes a half life possible for me. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks so much. P.S. I've never had a drug problem.
