afraid to begin self detox

Welcome to the forum. Yes, of course there is hope for you, there is always hope. Everyone here is addicted and some are very successful. You have to be careful on cutting out the benzos and I believe you are taking one (ativan). I could be wrong and someone will correct me if so. If you could talk to your rhem doc it would be a great start to a clean life. We all lose ourselves in these evil drugs and after you are clean for some time, you will feel so much better. I am going to post the Thomas Recipe for you and it should help with the w/d's. Your first 5-7 days will be the toughest. There are many here to support and help you through this. There is not one of us that doesn't ask ourselves "how did I do this to myself" and you are not alone. Have you ever tried to quit before? It is great that your husband will support you. Please don't beat yourself up over the past and move forward!! God Bless, Tim PLEASE NOTE: I am not a doctor, simply a long-time Rx opiate junkie who has had many opportunities to develop a way to detox. This is a recipe for at-home self-detox from opiates based on my experience as well as that of many other addicts. It is not intended as professional medical advice. It is always wise to make sure none of the recipe ingredients or procedures conflict with medications you may be taking. Likewise, if you have any medical condition, disease, allergy or any other health issue, consult your doctor before using the recipe. Thanks, Thomas THOMAS RECIPE If you can't take time off to detox, I recommend you follow a taper regimen using your drug of choice or suitable alternate -- the slower the taper, the better. For the Recipe, You'll need: 1. Valium (or another benzodiazepine such as Klonopin, Librium, Ativan or Xanax). Of these, Valium and Klonopin are best suited for tapering since they come in tablet form. Librium is also an excellent detox benzo, but comes in capsules, making it hard to taper the dose. Ativan or Xanax should only be used if you can't get one of the others. 2. Imodium (over the counter, any drug or grocery store). 3. L-Tyrosine (500 mg caps) from the health food store. 4. Strong wide-spectrum mineral supplement with at least 100% RDA of Zinc, Phosphorus, Copper, Magnesium and Potassium (you may not find the potassium in the same supplement). 5. Vitamin B6 caps. 6. Access to hot baths or a Jacuzzi (or hot showers if that's all that's available). How to use the recipe: Start the vitamin/mineral supplement right away (or the first day you can keep it down), preferably with food. Potassium early in the detox is important to help relieve RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome). Bananas are a good source of potassium if you can't find a supplement for it. Begin your detox with regular doses of Valium (or alternate benzo). Start with a dose high enough to produce sleep. Before you use any benzo, make sure you're aware of how often it can be safely taken. Different benzos have different dosing schedules. Taper your Valium dosage down after each day. The goal is to get through day 4, after which the worst WD symptoms will subside. You shouldn't need the Valium after day 4 or 5. During detox, hit the hot bath or Jacuzzi as often as you need to for muscle aches. Don't underestimate the effectiveness of hot soaks. Spend the entire time, if necessary, in a hot bath. This simple method will alleviate what is for many the worst opiate WD symptom. Use the Imodium aggressively to stop the runs. Take as much as you need, as often as you need it. Don't take it, however, if you don't need it. At the end of the fourth day, you should be waking up from the Valium and experiencing the beginnings of the opiate WD malaise. Upon rising (empty stomach), take the L-Tyrosine. Try 2000 mgs, and scale up or down, depending on how you feel. You can take up to 4,000 mgs. Take the L-Tyrosine with B6 to help absorption. Wait about one hour before eating breakfast. The L-Tyrosine will give you a surge of physical and mental energy that will help counteract the malaise. You may continue to take it each morning for as long as it helps. If you find it gives you the "coffee jitters," consider lowering the dosage or discontinuing it altogether. Occasionally, L-Tyrosine can cause the runs. Unlike the runs from opiate WD, however, this effect of L-Tyrosine is mild and normally does not return after the first hour. Lowering the dosage may help. Continue to take the vitamin/mineral supplement with breakfast. As soon as you can force yourself to, get some mild exercise such as walking, cycling, swimming, etc. This will be hard at first, but will make you feel considerably better. Thomas

Chronic back pain without definite findings of abnormalities on diagnostic testing is very difficult to assess and treat.  I can appreciate your frustration as it would be easier to correct if a specific cause could be identified. I don't know how long your  husband has been in constant pain or the type of tests that he has had done.  The fact that "numerous doctors" have been consulted without success makes his situation even more complex. No medical doctors contribute to this forum and assistance and support is provided by members who are or have had similar problems. Has there been a referral to a pain management specialist?  Without any pathology identified, the goal is to obtain maximum pain control while maintaining optimal function and movement.   Have any neuropathic pain relievers been tried? (Lyrica is an example) Managing pain may be his best option at this time. Post with an update and any additional questions/concerns you may have. Best wishes ----

chronic pain

Have you seen a rheumatologist?  If so I would try another one.  How long ago?  Some types of arthritis and auto-immune issues can take a while to show up in your blood so regular testing is required and in most cases a good rheumatologist will start treatment even without a diagnosis.  Have you had xrays yet?  What meds are you taking?

Surgery needed for chronic rib pain?

it sounds like she may have Costochondritis, which is inflamed ribs to use laymans terms. I have had it before and pretty much all you can do is let it heal on it's own which can take 6 weeks to 6 months. A chiropractor is always a good idea it helped me a alot and then I did simple stretching so as not to irritate the area more. I had all the symptoms that you are describing she has and my Dr put me on Naproxen as well as the stretching. I don't think surgery is the answer , granted I am taller ( 5'7 ) but I have 38 DD and as long as you wear a good bra your body can handle it.  Just google Costochondritis for more info :)

Do doctors take ADD into considerations for disability

  Your disability (In my opinion) will be based on your neck and shoulder pain.  I would guess that your pain medication is what is making you scattered - or due to your pain medication, your adderal is not able to work as effectively as it normally would.     This is certainly something you want to discuss with your doctor first.  You should not be, "so scattered that I cannot think".   It is not unusual for doctors to not communicate.  Make sure your ADHD doctor knows what is going on and what meds you are now on for pain.    Good luck.
