All medical efforts are directed towards achieving fibromyalgia pain relief. Many sufferers claim that pain alleviation came about by the using opoids and the adoption of this narcotic as drug leads to a controversy.
Opoids, commonly identified as a narcotic, has the potency to lessen severe pain. The name, opoid, is taken from the word opium, that plant from the poppy plant that had been used for centuries as a treatment for severe pain and illness. Opoid comes either in its natural form, from the opium plant, or as a synthetic combination of chemicals.
Some types used as fibromyalgia pain relief are: oxycodine, morphine and fentanyl. What many do not know, is that this medicine is used by dentist to reduce soreness in tooth extraction.
Because of the narcotic characteristics of opoids, there is now an on-going controversy in banning its use. Health workers fear the risk of addiction if patients take it continuously. Some researchers, too, claimed that there is little evidence that this actually provides relief from pain. As this question has not been settled, users of opoids find difficulty in buying the product without a doctor’s prescription.
How effective is this medication in eliminating pain? This is the key concept of the controversy; but claims substantiating its potency have not been disproved. A recent study on the performance of the drug’s long efficacy as a pain reliever, established that users experienced 38% relief from pain symptom and that:
1. The patients experience less sleep disturbance;
2. The patients have less anxiety and depression
3. The patients show an increased mobility and enjoyment of being alive.
Whatever is the result of the controversy, facts cannot deny that opoid is a fibromyalgia pain relief but it must be used with care and caution.
