      I’ve heard that Opioids target a different part of the brain & do not bring relief for most with fibromyalgia pain (just like ibuprofen & Tylenol do not - bc they are targeting a different pain pathway.) That fibromyalgia is a Central Nervous System disorder - & that a different medication is needed to target & relieve pain for that part of the brain/nervous system.

      Those of you who *were* on opioids for fibro pain - did it actually decrease your pain??

      I haven't looked at the article yet ... I was told by a younger newish Dr he said they are teaching them NOT to give out pain meds... Those of us that need these meds do not get addicted, seldom OD, and don't cause trouble yet we are being punished by other people's problems...
