I have been taking vicodin and flexiril for about 3 months now. I started taking it when I had a herniated disc. I also have terrible joint pain in my lower back, knees and elbow. I have discovered my orthopedist gives vicodin out like candy. So whenever I am there he asks do you need more and of course I say yes. I take 2-5 5.5 tabs a day. When I try to stop completely I get sweats, chills and nausea plus my entire body aches. Does this sound like withdrawal symptoms??? Are they any meds that help relieve pain without becoming addictive? Any support on this topice is greatly appreciated.
