    How do you deal with your Fibromyalgia pain?

    How do you deal with your Fibromyalgia pain? My daughter was diagnosed with it at a young age and as her mother it is hard to watch her suffer.

    Fibromyalgia causes a lot of symptoms. To help eliminate my neck, shoulder pain and my TMJ I have found a low dose of Prozac to help tremendously. I've also found that it has helped me to sleep. As to the sleep, I didn't see immediate improvement, but after three months I'm sleeping great. As to the pain, I found the Prozac to begin helping within a couple of weeks with greater relief after 2 months.

      As the others have stated, exercise helps tremendously. I exercise everyday, which include stretching. My doctor referred me to a  physical therapist who showed me some simple stretching exercises that helped to control the pain.

    I think a lot of people dismiss fibromyalgia as the disease of the day. As one who suffers from it, I can say that is NOT true - it is real and it is very painful.  Mine has progressed to the point that often I can barely walk because of the pain.

    For me I try to get a lot of rest as I find that the more rested I am the better the pain levels are. That and ibuprofen is all I do. 

    I am scared to death of anti-depressants or drugs like Lyrica.  So I just haven't tried those.

      thanks for your input, we are still trying to get people to understand and not just make fun of it and think it not real. She did say that rest helps her too.

    Its unusual that it's diagnosed at a you age. I don't have fibromyalgia but have given therapy to several patients that did. The idea is to manage it so she's comfortable. I actually wrote a hub on it previously. Hope it helps.

      Yes it is unusual to diagnosed at a young age, she had just turned 18 when she was diagnosed but looking back she had the symtoms of it since she was about 8.  Thanks for everything.
