I was just recently diagnosed with Fibromyalga. What medicine is good for the pain?

I was just recently diagnosed with Fibromyalga. I am only taking a medicine that helps with inflammation of the joints, Celebrex, which is for arthritis. I was wondering if anyone here has fibromyalga and what do they take for the pain.

    Do you see a rheumatologist? A rheumy is the best doctor to treat fibromyalgia.
    FMS is tricky. Not much is known how/why is attacks but we know that it does. But we do know that it’s not inflammatory.

    Keep in mind that you can use more than 1 doctor. You just keep everyone in the know. I see 3 different doctors- all treat different areas.

    Cymbalta and Effexor, both SNRIs, have been shown to help with fibromyalgia. I’ve been taking Effexor XR 300mg for the last couple years. It helps with sleep, pain levels, and the depression that can occur with chronic illness.
    Not sure how much it helps but it’s part of my overall therapy for lupus and fms.

    Most doctors treat with an analgesic (advil, aleve, celebrex, etc)
    muscle relaxer (soma, flexeril, skelaxin, etc)
    anti-depressant (cymbalta, effexor, elavil, etc)
    sleep medication (sonata, ambien, remeron, benedryl, elavil-a tri-cyclic used for sleep)
    Some use pain medication (vicodin, morphine, ultram, etc) and anti-seizure drugs (neurontin, tegretol, etc)

    Areas that need to be addressed-
    pain
    sleep
    exercise/stress reduction
    physical activity
    fatigue

    I use complimentary medicine also (chiropractic, massage therapy, vitamins/supplments)
    Each patient is so different. What works for me, won’t necessarily work for someone else. Good luck.

    I had it but I also got rid of it. I was laid up for a while after I had surgery and before I could go back to work I was getting all they symtoms of fibromyalga. After I went back to work the symptoms went away, the movement I was doing again took care of it. What seems to happen is that when we don’t get enough exercise the waste materials don’t get moved out of our bodies and backs up. When it backs up the cells can’t work properly because they can’t get good nutrients to them and there is no place ot dumb the expended wastes. This causes pains that seem to come out of nowhere for we ache all over and we should if things are backed up like that. Easy to get rid of, go out and do some jogging, get it up to 15 minutes a day, drink lots of water, cut out the sugars, pop and candy, replace with fresh fruit for the sweet tooth. You do this for one week and you will see the difference. Then make it a regular habit.
