I have a question for you all. I was wondering how many of you have had Fibromyalgia pain that is bad enough or has gotten bad enough over time, that you ended up needing to take some sort of opioid? I also wanted to know how it's helping or not and what you think would happen if they were no longer available to you?
I would appreciate any one who answered.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I use opioid in the mornings when I get up. It helps break up the stiffness. Ocassionally I will use them at other points in the day if the pain gets really bad. But honestly, I have been using them for 3 years now and really don't know how to go without them. Going without them creates withdrawals that are horrible. Yes they do work extremely well. However, your body does build up a tolerence and them you just need a higher dose. If I had known more before I started them, I would give myself 2 days a week that I did not take them at all in order to avoid dependency.
