1. Karen Augustine Karen Augustine United States says:

    I completely disagree when doctors say that opiates are not "effective" for pain relief in fibromyalgia. I have suffered with this horrible "syndrome" for many years, and went many years without the relief that comes with opiate treatment. I have now been on opiates for nearly five years and would not even be able to get out of bed and function at all without them. I thank the good Lord above that I have a doctor that says that I know my fibro better than he does. All I can say in closing is that if you newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia, the best thing that you can do for yourself is find a good pain management doctor that understands fibromyalgia. It may take some "shopping around", but it is so very well worth it.
