I am sorry you are suffering from FM. I can relate to what you are saying about being told by others to take whatever medication is being touted as if it is a cure. I am thankful my family and friends have not done that. I take issue with those commercials. They make it seem that just have to pop a pill and you are good as new. If it were that easy, you and I wouldn't be talking about it right now. I have taken Savella, Cymbalta and Lyrica. Either they didn't work or they made me extremely sick. I can't take any anti-inflammatory medication due to kidney disease caused by an interaction with Celebrex and another med I had to take for the RAD.
