Hyperalgesia, how many of us are affected?

I know while I was on pain meds or Suboxone, my ankles bothered me continuously. For those who aren’t aware, I crushed both ankles in a fall years and years ago.

When I finally got off of Suboxone and all pain meds, within a month or so, my ankle pain went away?? I take Advil once a week or so for my ankle pain now……actually, it’s probably less than once per week. When my ankles do bother me, a couple of Advil knock the heck right out of the pain.

I couldn’t figure out why in the world my ankles would feel better once off opiates, but Hyperalgesia does sound like the culprit.

Truthfully, one of my greatest fears about discontinuing Suboxone was what I was gonna do about my ankle pain……turns out my pain went away……BONUS!!!!
