After being on opiods for years I've been told that most people get "hyperalagesia". Is this a fact? The current drs. seem to be minimizing or even dismissing my pain from lupus. How can you tell what's what, or how much is one or the other if true? All I know is that my pain goes with the other lupus symptoms, fluctuating as it always has even before the meds. And if true, how do you minimize it? Does it mean the pain is not valid?
