cronic pain, pain meds & weight....

I have been dealing w/cronic back pain for a long while now & have been needing to deal w/it by using pain killers alomst daily. Vicodin & Oxicodone. Does anyone know if these things cause weight gain or the ability to not be able to lose weight?

pain meds

Am so sorry to hear about your pain. Hopefully, your doc's guidelines and prescriptions are helping.

It is my understanding that pain meds, themselves, do not cause weight gain or prevent you from losing weight. However, if a person needs to take thes meds for long periods of time, they can play as a factor in reducing motivation to exercize.

It would be a good idea to express your concerns to your doc. The 2 of you may be able to find other ways to control your pain, if the meds prove to be a factor in making weightloss, or anything else, more difficult.

Hoping you find the answers that work best for you........s....Deb

My sister had a serious injury 3 years ago. There is no hope that she will ever live a day of her life without pain. She does some alternatives to the standard pain meds, so she can function more or less normally.

She wears some sort of pager-like device that gives her small shocks all day long, and every so many months she gets a shot in one of her joints.

It isn't a perfect fix, but she is able to carry out a more or less normal lifestyle.

Well, I Am Off To Get My Last Spinal Injection This Morning. Cross Your Fingers That This One Works! I Was Told Of The Device That Your Sister Has, They Talked W/me About It, But I Don't Know Where They Are Going W/ That Thought Anymore. I Will Write Back Tomorrow To Let You All Know If This Shot Did Anything Or Not.

I hope you find some way to get pain relief. I, too, have chronic pain but am just now going to the pain clinic. I hope they are able to help.

Please keep us posted on your progress!
