Fibromyalgia pain relief

I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia after all my other tests came back without much abnormal results. I have been in a crazy amount of pain since December. I currently 60 MG of cymbalta, 1000 mg of robaxin 4 times a day and 300 MG of gabapentin 2 times a day. I am not getting much pain relief, the cymbalta helps with my anxiety and mood. Any suggestions? Anyone familiar with this combo?

I see the rheumatologist in a couple weeks.

Hi coco82

Yeah I can relate to what u say. I to take a crazy amount of medication to help my pain. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia back end of last year. I've suffered with chronic pain for some 20 plus years, had numerous surgerie procedures done over the years that were meant to help, but never so I'm now on fentanyl patches, morphine tablets, amatryptatine tablets, lidocaine patches and pregabalin, they dull my pain but doesn't take it away unfortunately. If your looking for a med change some of these may help.
