I am 39 years old and was officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia a little over a year ago though my mom has been telling me for years it is what I have. Sometimes I have bad flair ups at least once a month, and there have been times where I have gone a few months without a bad flair up. My body hurts all the time but when it flairs up bad the pain is unreal. My doctor did every test imaginable to rule everything else out. I have noticed that the bad flair ups usually occur during times when I am suffering from a bad cold or flu, or during times of stress. I wonder if there is a correlation there? My doctor had me on Cymbalta, which seemed to help somewhat, but my insurance ran out and I couldn't afford $200 a month for the prescription. He then switched me to Elavil, which really doesn't help much but does allow me to get good solid sleep. My insurance will be back in October and I am wondering if there is something else I should try. Does anyone have any experience with Lyrica? Or is there any other meds out there that I don't know about? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
