It would seem the pain specialists are anti opiates for fibro. On a recent visit to my doctor he told me a patient had recently been to a private rheumatologist who wanted her to come off of all her pain meds and only take paracetamol!! When I had my consultation with the pain clinic they also suggested coming of tramadol. I told him I like to see them live just one day in our shoes and see how they like it without pain meds.
Anyone else finding this to be the case?
I have recently started wearing a butrans patch and I can honestly say it had changed my life. My pain is nowhere near as bad as it was. My main problem now is chronic constipation.
Oh well, we can't have it all can we?
