When you suffer from chronic pain, it’s entirely likely that you will use pain medications to find relief. If you become too reliant on medications, however, you run the risk of becoming addicted to them. As your body becomes more used to the medications, you may find that you need a higher dosage in order to get the same physical results you are accustomed to. You may also discover that you go through withdrawal when you aren’t able to obtain the medications. If you’re concerned that you may be developing an addiction to the drugs you use for your chronic pain issues, talk to your physician immediately. The risk of opioid addiction is one of the potential outcomes of chronic pain, and it’s why any lasting pain you experience because of an avoidable accident should be taken seriously.
