    I was diagnosed with FM back in 2002. I didn't believe my doctor because I knew I had a blown disk. I am now 8 years later, after getting off the opiates, going through what I now believe is the FM that he was talking about. I am finding new ways to cope with the pain and not be bound to opiate drugs as I was before. Opiates are a very scary "pseudo-comfort" and can even get the ones you love around you hooked. Please be careful and consider more natural pain relief rather than taking an opiate, because after about a few years, the symptoms come back, and not only rear their ugly head, but also drag addiction into the picture as well. I hope this helps everybody who reads this and pray that you all will find peace.
