Supposedly I have fibro secondary to my Lupus as well, but I've never treated it with anything other than healthy eating, sleep, and exercise.
I thought Amitriptyline (Elavil) was an anti-depressant, I didn't know it was used to help fibro.
Did you know you can be in a Lupus flare even with good numbers? We don't always have things that can be measured and counted like that. For instance, I had horrid burning pain in my toes, felt like someone had inserted burning battery acid in the joints, for over a year... never showed up anywhere, but we assumed it was Lupus-related as nothing else matched and prednisone seemed to help.
