One of the most confounding things about fibro is how differently each person’s symptoms are, and how medications that work for one person, do nothing for the next.
I have had a Fibro diagnosis for 15 years. The only meds that work for me at all are Lyrica and Cymbalta in concert. When the pain is mostly bearable, I also use a Tens Unit. I find it very helpful for upper back and neck pain.
When the pain is really out of control (even on my meds) Nycenta is the only opioid type pain med that gives me any further relief.
I have found medical marijuana to be a non-starter and have tried various iterations of CBD and THC.
Massage feels good only while I am on the table…no lasting results.
Acupuncture was also a non-starter.
So, those are the meds and techniques that have (or haven’t) been effective in my journey.
