My daughter told me she is going to Equador with her inlaws and husband. She is on the Fentenyl patch and morphine for breakthrough pain. She has severe FM pain and works full time. She is on the lowest dose of both she can stand and is just getting by as it is. I am very concerned for her going anyway to a country out of the U.S. right now, and we aren't especially beloved in South America either. But this has me worried that she could end up with problems. I've researched the area and tourists have been being "robbed, beaten and raped", an American nurse is missing there now and one site said terrorists are attempting to get into the drug trade there. Tourists are advised not to go out after dark..or on the roadways out of the city. They will be visiting some older relative of her husband's dad, but I'm sure they will want to see the "sights". I am just so worried and it's not helping my FM much. Anyone else gone out of country and using pain medications?
