meds cause weight gain and really doesn't help

I am on Cymbalta and Lyrica, I have gained 20 pounds. I have always watch what I eat and exercise daily, but healthy eating and exercise doesn't help. I feel bloated and uncomfortable all the time. Not only am I now over weight, the fibromyalgia never goes away. I tried to stop taking Lyrica, I suffered from hot sweats, verigo, and vomiting. The side effects from the Lyrica are numerous, headache, weight gain, bladder problems, etc. When I tell my Dr. she says, "Well these are the recommended medications for Fibromyalgia."
My left arms bicep muscle stays so sore and weak I cannot lift anything, even my purse. I am open for any suggestions.
