Ive had fibromyalgia for about 2 yrs now but was just diagnosed. Like most I had to go through test after test to finally get there. Its the most frustrating thing to deal with but Im still working full time but am lowering my hours to 37 soon.
Things that have helped:
8 hrs sleep
Low stress environment
Exercise 3x a week
I drink 10 glasses of water a day
I take 1500 mg of gabapentin a day
Serotonone to sleep
Amitriptyline hcl 25mg to sleep
All natural moringa powder
2 scoops all natural veggie and fruit powder
2 massages a month
1 chiropractic visit a month
I would say that on an average day Im 80% pain free and able to do normal things. Any other suggestions? The powders have fixed the low energy but the brain fog and not being able to find words to say bothers me the most besides my stiff neck and shoulders.

hey i would suggest nmda antagonists over gabapentin because they lower glutamate presynaptically instead of increasing gaba to inhibit glutamate postsynaptically, i suggest looking up memantine and orphenadrine citrate and also the reason i suggest this class of medication is it has helped my fibro greatly and ketamine has been used to lower fibromyalgia and crps pain with infusions which have been quite successful
