I'm new here. Looking for a Lupus forum/chat for myself, and happened to see your post. If what you have is Fibromyalgia, ask your Doctor about Lyrica. Lyrica is this new drug for Fibromyalgia. In fact it is the only drug approved for Fibro. Any, it works by dampening the nervous system response to pain. I am taking it and I think it helps. I have Lupus and Fibro. My skin still hurts sometimes, but not as bad as you are experiencing. Lyrica is expensive, so if that is an issue, ask about other similar drugs like Neurontin.
I used to run a support group for Fibromyalgia before my Lupus diagnosis, so that is part of the reason that I am so full of imformation. I promise I am not a drug company representative!
Best of luck with finding treatment for this and may you feel much better very soon!
