Well. I was on subs for 13 years... Now that I have been off of it for a while, I've discovered I was in much more pain on subs. Sub does not help with headache relief, for example. For me, it caused a myriad of pain symptoms. I often had back and joint pain that was pretty severe at times. When I would dose, I did feel pain relief the first couple hours, but it was short lived. I 'thought' the pain I was experiencing was my body just getting older. Today, I can honestly say that I believe the sub was causing pain, for me. I completely realize this is in no comparison to someone that suffers from chronic pain (right sb?
). I started sub because I am a drug addict and I did not have physical pain issues prior...I only had them on sub. Now that I'm post-sub... I no longer have pain.
