Hello JoJo,
Welcome to the forum. I wish you luck in finding a doctor who can help you with your request. I have heard the gov, is going to make it harder to get the opiates drugs do to many people's over use of them. But I wish you luck and maybe other members can name a doctor in your area.

In the mean time be sure to read through the pain management sections and alternatives to see if you can learn some new coping skills to help you deal with fibro while you search for a new doctor. Be sure not to demand certain drugs or some doctors think you are a drug user and then won't help with getting the meds you need.

You can post answers as well for if you have had fibro for over 20 years I am sure you have lots of your own coping skills to share. See you around the forum. :)
