EPD and Pain Medication

Can you advise on what painkillers are compatible with the EPD? I have been on EPD very successfully for some years, but now am facing a painful problem with vulvadynia which can be very severe. My doctor has only come up with Stadol to which I had a bad side effect. I am usually taking Morphine Sulfate when the pain flares up, but understand this can cancel out the EPD. Is Dilaudid compatible or anything else for severe pain?

My advice is to follow the experience of your doctor. I do not practice EPD and even if I did, I would still advise you to place this question before your doctor and certainly not introduce anything into your treatment program without that person's knowledge. Beyond that, where I may be of help is in getting to the root cause of the pain. While it is certainly not widely known or accepted in mainstream medicine (but never mind - MSM asserted the cause of vulvadynia to be psychological for many year on no evidence whatever), I have found that most unexplained pain syndromes respond to removal of metal, particularly dental amalgam followed by chelation to remove the body burden of mercury which has accumulated over the years. I am going to guess that you have many dental fillings or some other source of heavy metals in your body. Is that correct? And if it is correct, second question: do you experience intestinal bloating and generalized fatigue?
