Re: Just Diagnosed, Looking for People Who Understand

Welcome and I am sorry you have this fibro thing, and it will take awhile to figure out what helps. I take both Lyrica and Cymbalta and they control my pain quite well. I too was sensitive to drugs and had to try a few before I got to this combo. I also manage it others ways as well. I exercise (water aerobics are the best for me) eat healthy, drink lots of water, take vitamins, avoid/limit sugar, caffeine and alcohol. Make sure you get good sleep as that will help a lot too.

My best to you,
Pam
