What is one thing that helps you the MOST with your fibromyalgia or chronic pain or chronic fatigue, aside from your pills? Is it IcyHot, BioFreeze, Hot showers, a handheld massager?

I’m on Lyrica. I’m nervous, but my doctor thinks it might work better for me than Gabapentin (Neurontin). Anybody else on it? How did it make them feel? Any wierd side effects?
I’m also on Cymbalta. And then, of course, my back up pain meds for flare or breakthrough pain days.

It robbed me of energy. It robbed me of family & friends.
Do I regret being diagnosed? Not as much as I did.

2 - Minor Annoyance - occasional strong twinges. No medication needed.
3 - Annoying enough to be distracting. Mild painkillers take care…
