And i also started to drink heavily due ti pain issues from them (Opiate induced hyperalagesia)
Google it, No freaking cure and nothing help's my pain., or the other poor soul's whose lives have been wreaked by it.
And i also found out another drug they put me on in the 'cocktail' Amyltrptyline actually causes alcohol craving and made my nerve damage pain even worse if that's possible, it's hell!!
Hyperalagesia mean's 'too much pain' and often get's misdiagnosed as 'Chronic pain. ME, Fibromyalgia, Neuropathic nerve pain and God knows what else.
I was even told i had 'Mental' problem's while screaming in agony? I went into anaphalaxic shock from the pain and neatly died, and did my own research and tracked down that my year's of hell isn't a 'new phenomena'.
It's been known about since 1889, and one opiate painkillers can trip it off.
