There are many alternative treatments that may help. Check out our health pages for some tips in that area.
The important thing is getting good sleep and pacing yourself each day. Accupuncture is another form of pain relief that some seek...with good results. Fibro is so changing (waxing and waning) that everyone is different and must find what works best for them. Cymbalta, Lyrica and Neurontin are 3 medications that have been used to treat FMS.
I hope you find something to help you and your pain. Take care.
If you are in a state where it is legal, medical marijuana is a great help to Fibro pain. It makes day to day living much more tolerable and doesn't have the nasty side effects many pain management medications do.
