Hi Cheeky and welcome. Fibro has not been classified as an auto-immune disorder but many with fibro do have auto-immune disorders. I hope they do get to the bottom of fibro someday soon and find the cause and maybe a cure, we can dream. I hope you find a good doctor that you connect with and will work with you on the pain control. I'm not on narcotics but I have been going to the same GP for many, many years and he knows I'm not a drug seeker, I'm the opposite I have medphobia. No one with chronic pain should be made to feel like a drug seeker.
Read the fibro 101 thread, second on first page, it contains lots of great info. Read back threads and ask questions. We come up with all kinds of ways to help with the pain. Heat in any form is our good friend.
Glad you joined us and we will be here to help you.
luv and hugs
