Hi, and welcome! I'm so glad you found us and joined in. Oh, I have costo too and it does hurt. My doctor has me taking ibuprofen with food to help with that.
I see that Karen directed you to the Fibro 101 thread. There are links to a lot of good info about fibro and also ways to help you deal with it. I'm sure you have some good tips yourself that you can share with us.
I use ibuprofen with food, extra strength Tylenol, malic acid/magnesium supplements, and vitamin D3 to help with pain and fatigue. There are links about the supplements in the Fibro 101 thread. I haven't used the heavy duty medication for fibro and I hope I can maintain my control over the pain using these things. They have helped me for a long time already.
Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better and I hope to hear more from you soon.
