Here is my dilemma. I've been on opiates/opiods since the millennium for chronic back pain. They are having a bad effect on my health now and I can't get off of them. I used to be able to stand the withdrawal symptoms and kick them in a week or so, but now because of excruciating akathisia. I need to take at least 5 mg. of oxycodone (which I am prescribed) every five hours or I have symptoms of akathisia so bad I can't stand it. If I don't It will never go away and I can't live with it. The only thing I can think of (when I'm going through the symptoms) is stopping the pain, and the pain of perpetually moving, but it never stops, never. I can be up for days, constantly moving, rocking, jerking, very aggressive, dead on my feet, yet wanting to forever jump out of my skin, but it never stops. It never goes away. I would rather die than live with it, I can't stand the hell. My doctors tell me it's withdrawal symptoms from the oxy prescribed for my RLS which is Bs. They told me they don't really know what it is, can't name it, can't treat it, there is no cure, no testing, and nothing they can do except try to keep me comfortable with opiates, which is what I want to STOP. But it will be with me for the rest of my life and there's nothing I can do about it. I am pretty depressed about it but they just pat me on the head as they shove me out the door.
