Withdrawal is horrible and I do not want to get
addicted again. Is it even possible to
take daily painkillers and NOT get
addicted? My condition is PMR - polymalgia rheumatica, which my doctor says is far more serious and more painful than fibromamyalgia; my bloodwork shows my inflammation rate is 98, and around 20 is normal. Help me please, someone! How can I take these narcotic painkillers and NOT get addicted? They've also started me on a low-dose chemotherapy, hoping that will help.
