Hey guys, my doctor just changed me from lortabx4 to morphineSRx4. Boy am I sick. The morphine really helps the pain, but my stomach and nerves are having a rough go. Anybody have any suggestions?

Perhaps try methodone. I think morphine is OK but it always made me sick and if you take it you have to keep uping the dose. As you would guess it is highly addictive and withdrawing from the drug is no joke. The same is true of methodone but I don't think it is quite as rough on the system.

I was thinking maybe some of may sickness was coming from stopping the lortab. Other than the sick feeling & drowsyness it works alot better on the pain. Its pretty work to work like this. I was hoping it would go away after a while.

I think morphine states it is dangerous to operate machinery while taking this medication kind of like the percocets I am on, they are addictive but I quit driving about 5 years ago and was disabled in 2002 so who cares lol, there are days the pecocets don't even work. I even offered to let them operate on my back using an epidural, but due to the severity of my heart condition they refuse to do any type of surgery on me, none of the doctors want me being a statistic on their death charts, so they just keep me doped up, their are days I hurt so bad, I just wish it would stop, and I don;'t care how.

Sorry about your pain. Sounds like its pretty rough. They say I'm to young for another surgery???? 45, wish they had said that before the first one. My meds have made me so sick I have had to stop (sick on my stomach and can't sleep). Now the pain is back and my head feels like its going to pop. I have an mri today. If I make it today I may stay in bed tomorrow. If anyone has any suggestions I sure aprreciate it.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
