use. I understand after long term opiate use, it can wreak havoc on endocrine system, which could be why my hormones are not normal, but doctors don't offer help. Please, does anyone know how i can help myself, especially if I am still having to take pain medication. I feel just horrid, and cannot live like this much longer, am in danger of losing my job if I have to be out due to medical reasons again. I don't know how to wean off medication while working, I can't do it! If I knew I would feel better for sure, I'd let the dang job go... I don't know what to do.
