Hi there ~
I understand your concerns. I agree with you when you say that stopping the use of heroin
will usually result in the withdrawal symptoms
that you have described. Opioid
medications are usually every effective in controlling pain and I believe that the withdrawal from these medications will result in the pain in most of the areas that the medications would help in the first place. I also think that you should visit with and consult a local psychiatrist
to find out what medications you can use to control the pain problems. Methadone
treatment might be necessary if you are dependent on opioid for pain problems. A complete medical check up may also be necessary to make sure that you are not having any other medical problems.
I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
