Have had symptoms of fibromyalgia off & on for many years, but it appears to have a trigger in order for symptoms to appear. If I come down with a viral illness or expose myself to prolonged winter cold activity, I will often end up experiencing extreme pain all over. It generally puts me to bed curled up in a fetal position...bad discomfort. The pain does seem to be more focused on the body areas that have been used to diagnose fibromyalgia. Anyone else experience the same thing? I am already on some of the meds that are often used to treat fibromyalgia (for other issues). However, wondering if having my physician prescribe neurontin or other med during these exacerbations would help me to cope with the pain.
