Welcome to the forum.

If you are in a state where it is legal you might try medical cannabis. It helps me a lot.
Some people also do acupuncture or other treatments like that.

Don't just rely on medications from doctors. They can help, but try other things as well, and for your own good avoid anything that is opiate-based.

I know you feel really over it. But, the thing is if you have Fibro there's no cure right now, nor any medication that makes it better for everyone. So try not to think of it as something you're Over, and instead think of it as something you need to work on and work with. Just taking enough pain medication to knock out the pain (if you could even find such a thing) is not the solution.

by the way I love Bichons too.

Pregabalin (Lyrica) has been a Godsend for me. It's not an opiate and cannot be addictive. It was originally for diabetics with neuropathy. It helps quiet the overactive nerves and provides some much needed relief. A lot of fibro sufferers where i live claim you just need some exercise and a good muscle relaxer. Nonsense! Everyone is different, but if you're suffering a an don't know what to do, you might want to discuss it with your doctor. It definitely can't hurt to ask
