New to Fibro..seeking help

Hello,
i am a 31 year old woman. for the past 7 years i have struggled with chronic migraines. i used to have daily migraines but i have gotten much better..down to 1/week or so. but since my migraines got better i have developed fibro symptoms...just sever achiness in my muscles(esp. my back shoulders) and extreme exhaustion.
while i am grateful that my headaches have improved...this fibro pain is nearly as disabiling. i have trouble sleeping as well due to the pain.
i am wondering what people have found as the best help for fibro. my dr. prescribed cymbalta. i haven't taken it yet due to fear of side effects and also that i read it is very addictive. i am already trying to stop vicoden(i take 1/2 pill per day for my pain cause it is the only thing that helps).
i'd be so grateful for any help/advice/suggestions.
thank  you.
sincerely,
star
