Hi everyone,

I have been having a lot of aching in my upper back and neck....I have tried some different stretches...still aching, took some pain medicine (5 mg oxycodone) but it just made me even more tired...If I take some of my anti-anxiety medicine (0.5 Klonopin) will it ease this pain at all? Or if anyone else has any suggestions?

thanks! take care

I don't know if you've checked over in the fibromyalgia forum or not, but it's my understanding that lupus pain and fibro pain respond totally differently to many meds -- I think you'd find better answers over that way.........just an idea.

Hi, I also have fibromyalgia and I have been taking Savella 50mg 2x daily and use flexeril
when I am flaring. I also post on the fibro forum and there are members there that take
meds for anxiety and still have fibro pain. You can go to the fibro forum and check out
the first thread on the top of the page, fibro 101. It has some wonderul info.

When I am hurting from fibro, heat is my best friend, soak in a hot bath. During the day
use a heating pad or micowave rice bag for pain relief. hope you can find some relief!

Hugs
