I live in chronic pain. Abdominal and low back pain that runs down my left leg. I now weigh 77 lbs and have completely lost all muscle in my back and buttocks causing unbearable pain. I was on Norco 10/325 1 every 6 hrs but yesterday my dr. put me on Dilaudid 2 mg 1 every 12 hrs. It is not touching the pain. I have not been able to sleep. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please! Thank you
Try to give it a few days for your body to get used to a new medication and dosage. If you still continue to have such problems, schedule an appt with your Dr and let him know what's going on. Giving it a week or so will demonstrate to your Dr that you're willing to try a change in medication and not just pushing for more pain meds. The more cooperative you are, the more willing the Dr will be to work with you. Hope this helps a bit.
