I'm new to this site. Ive had fibromyalgia since I'm 23 and now I'm 39. I had a 4 year remission where i had no pain at all. There was no particular reason why I did change a thing. In fact I had my first son and I also was on no meds at the time. Now I have a second son and i was in remission during both pregnancies and during breast feeding for 7 months. Two months after I finished nursing I started having flares and theyve now been on and off for 2 years. I also have another condition which has the same symptoms as fibro its called vulvodynia. All of my symptoms are nerve pain. I get burning, tingling pains and throbbing in head on and off. I get these symptoms externally on the vulva. Its very frustrating bc I love to exercise and right now I've had a vulvodynia flare for 6 weeks now. I'm on cymbalta, elavil, and neurontin with no results. I was on lyrica and it did nothing but cause me weight gain.If anyone has a similar experience let me know thanks.
