Not sure if it would work for fibromyalgia.  I have nerve pain from RSD after many hand surgeries.  (I also have fibromyalgia.)  I did stellate ganglion blocks for the nerve pain and have had varying relief with them.  Maybe it's something you could ask about.  Best of luck.

I would think there would be another kind of med.  My rheumatologist has me on Cymbalta to help with fibromyalgia pain,.
