I should add that by no means does it take all my pain away!! And like most I read on here u have good days and bad!
I wrk a very physical job I own a painting and contracting business...
I wanted to quit because I thought it made it worse? My specialist told me never to quit because the more physical the better... even though I am in pain everyday he said if I stop the pain will be mush worse...
I recently started meditation in the mornings and I find that sets me up better for my day💕
Oh and I am also been on keto for 3 yrs and I personally feel my pain is a lot better with this lifestyle change xoxo

@A MyFibroTeam Member & @A MyFibroTeam Member Oh I really needed to hear that you’re experiencing good results with Lyrica! I’ve been so afraid to try it because of the fear of gaining weight! However, I feel so desperate anymore because the pain is so knife stabbing, ripping and tearing pain. (It feels like that anyway) So I’m contemplating calling my Dr to start it, and it’s not like they all having mentioned Lyrica; I’ve just been paranoid. I’ve tried so many things including Cymbalta up to 90 mg with poor results, but that’s just for me, that I’ve been hesitant to start something new. I’m reaching the end of my rope with this suffering that I may be able to let my guard down and try it. Thanks so much girls

Lyrica and duloxetine together made a huge improvement in my pain levels and increased my quality of life.

I know your pain and feelings. I take lyrica myself and it helps a lot. Been on it for years. I tried all others with no luck until I found lyrica and tramadol as well as a muscle relaxer. But we are all so different. I hope you find one that works for you. You are so much stronger than you feel right now. Gentle hugs
