Does anyone with FMS-fibromyalgia use a topical solution medication that really helps with pain in joints, arms and legs? My Doc prescribed Pennsaid which seems to help some, but is not consistently effective.
How are you? FMS is usually managed with medications, lifestyle changes, and exercise. Medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, oral or topical may be used for symptomatic relief. However, if your present medication is not helping, it is best that you inform your attending physician for proper management. A change of dosage or medicine may be indicated. Stress reduction and relaxation techniques may also help.Take care and do keep us posted.
