    have any of you been told NOT to take pain meds until you absolutely need them? that your body would build up a tolerance toward them? and when you can no longer stand the pain they wont work as well?

    No, I have not been told that. My doctor is very good about prescribing pain meds. That said, I do not take pain meds every day. I try to use them only when I really, really have to. Mainly because I don't want to build up a tolerance, or get psychologically dependent upon them. I think this is individual for everyone. If you have a question about a particular drug, call your pharmacist and they can help you.
