gracietiger - I've had shoulder, neck and head pain (only on the left side) since October of 2007. My knees and hips continue as usual... and my hands and wrists come and go.... but thanks for askin'! I finally went to a pain management doctor (after 8 years) and the Lyrica and Skelexan seem to work on the fibromyalgia pain (what a relief). She is 'titering' me up to handle the joint pain. I'm having a hard time taking more and more pain meds (I crash in the afternoons) but once my system adjusts I should be alright. I think there's been a slight reduction in pain, at least for the past few days.
How are you doing?
