This is a new group created for those who suffer from Fibromyalgia. I am hoping to hear about how and when you were diagnosed, and if you had used any form of Opiates, or other pain reducing drugs, short or long tern, prior to being diagnosed with these symptoms. I have a theory that Fibromyalgia symptoms may actually be caused by the discontinued use of pain relievers. Please write your story about how and when your symptoms began to affect you, if they have worsened over time and what drugs you are using to help with the pain. I'm very interested in finding out if you were ever given or have use any form of pain medication for any condition prior to the onset of your Fibromyalgia symptoms. If so, please include this information.
