narcotics addiction

Nov 05, 2014 4:11 AM

Has anyone had previous narcotics addiction? I ask because I wonder if previous addiction to narcotics could have triggered my fibromyalgia?

I did. But the doc told me that it didn't have anything to do with it. But it makes me wonder. Hope you feel better

No problem. :)

I have not. I have been told it's caused by emotional or physical trauma.

Thanks for the reply. I thought I had heard that lots of people with fibro had previous addictions to narcotics. Maybe I am thinking of something else. I blame myself for fibro because of my previous addictions. Only by the grace of God they are previous! I figure the way I lived my life before was rough and this is the consequence. Guess it doesn't really matter though...I have it and now must deal with it. Just like all of you. Wish we could all be pain free.

inflammation causes all pain. even psychological warfare. Dr Gary Kaplan has a great book (available on Audibles too!!!) called "Total Recovery" saved my life.
