Hi, Dannielle, and welcome! I'm so glad you found us and joined the family. I think you will like it here.
I use ibuprofen with food, extra strength Tylenol, malic acid/magnesium supplements and vitamin D3 supplements to help with pain and fatigue. Then I add gentle stretching exercises, walking and swimming, and a monthly gentle massage. This combination helps me be in control of my pain....not pain-free. I have had fibro for decades and have had a great life so far. We are all so different, though. What works for one might not work for another. It's totally trial and error with fibro.
Be sure to check out Fibro 101...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good information about fibromyalgia and you will learn a lot there. Read the links called Symptoms, What Else Could It Be, and A Thorough Explanation of Fibromyalgia. These are good links to start with. There are also links about the stretching exercises and malic acid/magnesium and vitamin D3 supplements and how these work in your body.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. I hope to hear more from you soon.
