Savella and fibromyalgia

I am a five year sufferer of fibro. I have tried all the drugs and had horrible side effects from all.  I am currently taking tramadol for pain that's been my only constant med.
I have added savella about 30 days ago.  .25 x2 day
I haven't seen any pain relief but rather have in the last week added leg pain ... Like my ankles are broken .... Up to my hip ... And my toes are numb when I stand
I don't have a good medical team I am on an HMO and the group has little  fibro expertise.
If I go in they will just remove savella.  I don't want that if this is just a stage...honestly this is my last resort they tell me if this doesn't work there is nothing left to try.
I do OT PT swim walk when I am able .... Changed my diet... I am not over weight but honestly life has stopped I don't do much because of the pain
I just would like to hear if anyone has had this reaction to savella....

Thanks
