... was an infant to about 7 or 8 yrs of age.I am 48 yrs old and have had life long health issues with my stomach and now have been told I have auto immune diesease also several orthopedic issues. My twins have now been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and were born with kidney and bladder problems. I have always been alcohol and drug intolerant and now am fighting several health problems. My doctors have been unable to understand why I have bone density issues and osteo arthritis as well as osteopenia and several spinal disc problems. I live in extreme pain now and have since I was a teenager. My question is... Did this drug Paregoric given to me was something if not a cause to some of my health issues. My Grandmother took care of me from time to time and told me I would go through withdrawls each time. I had great difficulty eating and still do. Thank you for your time... EB
