You were already a part of our family Patti. I don't know whether I should congratulate you or not, hehehe. There are things a lot worse as you know.
You know the strange thing about my case is I was already on the standard fibro treatment years before being dxd with fibro. I am on 100 mg amitriptyline which I was put on for anxiety over 10 yrs ago and I have been on tramadol for years for arthritis pain. I have also been on celexa for over 10 yrs. My docs and I all agree not to do Lyrica cause my pain is not severe enough for the side effects from it. They would like for me to try cymbalta but I want to talk to my GP again about other options on anti-depressants before doing that.
Since you probably know more about fibro than your docs do from being on here you know the other things like moist heat that works.
luv and hugs
