New Research Finds That Fibromyalgia And The Disorder’s Associated Chronic Pain May Worsen Opioid Use Disorder

“Worries about pain may cause people with fibromyalgia and OUD to delay getting addiction treatment. In our current overdose crisis, every day a person puts off OUD treatment might be the last day of their life.”

The study also revealed that those with fibromyalgia are more likely to fear that pain could potentially cause future opioid relapse.

Now, the researchers claim there are ways medical professionals can help those living with fibromyalgia.

“It’s possible that combining lessons learned from years of studying fibromyalgia might one day inform new treatments for chronic pain and OUD,” said Dr. Daniel J. Clauw, the study’s senior author.

Still, further research is warranted for new treatment development.

“This is just the beginning,” Clauw concluded.
