I did so well with opiod meds as part of my treatment when first diagnosed with FM, had to move and found that new doc , and many docs , are afraid to use narcotics, I am doing my part by exercising , eating well, and avoiding things that make me flare. I am so tired of being treated like a junkie when I ask for pain meds that are opiates. They always say no, but I keep trying, Does anyone know where I can find literature that supports the use of opiods for chronic pain? I know docs are afraid of tolerance and dependence, but if properly monitored and in combination with other meds / treatments...I believe use of narcotics is ok, I have the right to be free of pain!! I would do anything for minutes of relief , I get so frustrated that I cry . When using opiopds as part of my treatment I could work, play softball, keep up my housework ( sorta , lol) and generally be active. After losing my 1st doc and my meds I have also lost my ability to work, be active with my kids, and have gained 30 ponds, I am so angry about this , I wish my current doc could feel what I feel for a day...then have someone tell her she doesnt need pian meds...sorry for the rant, I just cant suffer in silence , any suggestions?
