Well I did not get any tests

Well I did not get any tests done for my stomach pain from taking the Viccodin but my doc. did switch me back to Oxycodone IR. I do not wake up with bad stomach pains anymore and I have noticed that my heart and chest do not have the pain and tightness anymore. The oxycodone works better for my pain relief and I am very glad to get away from the viccodin because I know how bad tylenol is for the body expecially taking max dose everyday.I'm going to a pain management place in a few weeks for my first time and don't reallt know what to expect but I'm sure it will be a good thing.  My QRC says and I have read the brochure that it is a hollistic pain management center. Also my doctor said they will give me a"cocktail" of drugs there. I thought hollistic meant to not use medication in treatment. Well I guess I will find out when I get there. Thanks sprinkles and everyone else for posting on my comment. Have a good day.

Here is something I read.


F.D.A. Plans New Limits on Painkillers with acetaminophen.


WASHINGTON — The government announced Thursday that it would sharply restrict some of the nation’s most popular prescription painkillers, saying they cause many patients to poison themselves with overdoses of the drug acetaminophen.


Under the new limit, the pills may contain no more than 325 milligrams of acetaminophen — less than half the amount found in many of them now.


Dr. Kweder said Thursday that a ban of 325-milligram limit would not weaken the medicines’ painkilling power.

Thanks, Doc Bill

Hows it Brah?

Best case scenario: No chemicals. Ever see a vicodin tree? Or maybe a methylcelluloseazapine bush?  Still meditating? There are different methods to battle different things. Go Natural!  Know of any good herbs? diet? How much water are you drinking per day? If you are urinating and it has ANY color you are NOT drinking enough water. I'll bet you this. If you drank the agua like I'm typing about you'll feel 80%+ better. This will make all your pipes, hoses, filters and everything else work good..

Worst: If a different meditation/yoga and copius amounts of agua don't make you feel better than get on an "extended release" medication. My personal favorite is Fentanyl and they are now available in 12.5 mcg.  

You are sharp. This is a "tummy ache" but it is your vessel telling you that you need to make a change. It isn't positive/negative it just is... Slow down, breath. The last thing you need to do is worry. All your worry is for naught.  If that worry is accompanied w/adrenaline then you have different acids (bad kind) mixing in your gut... 

Or is it Taco Bell®
