You are so correct in that we need Opioids in order to live a somewhat normal productive life!
I can understand physicians are afraid to hand out narcotics but if this is the case they shouldn't be treating chronic pain patients!
I have seen many people who suffer with chronic pain get their pain meds from a doctor then that doctor moves etc. and then they are forced to go to another doctor who may not be willing to prescribe the pain meds they need to live!
Don't get me wrong, I believe a well-balanced approach to long-term pain management is needed, not just drugs.
