Fibromyalgia board


I'm newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have been taking Cymbalta 60 mg, Plaquenil 60 mg twice a day, and Loritab Elixor for pain every four hours. I have been in what I think is full "flare up" mode for a couple of months now - is this normal for it to last that long - is there something I can do to make the flare up lessen? Is the constant pain and burning even with the meds normal? How long does it take for the meds to start working? I have been on them for about 6-7 weeks now. Any help much appreciated. I also take Lunesta to sleep, flexeril for the muscle spasms and Requip for my restless legs. Seems like a lot of meds - anyone taking anything natural and if so how do I ween off these drugs and switch to natural? Gosh so many question. Very hard disease to understand. Thanks again.:confused:
