I have been wondering how long 'flares' generally last for. I have been off work almost 4 months and still have painful tender points predominantly in my buttocks as well as my knees despite being on 2700mg of gabapentin.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in april this year after my health deteriorated and have been building up on gabapentin, although it looks like i may end up coming off it as i haven't made any significant improvements since being on it.
Unfortunately I'm still having problems with sitting upright for very long.
I've had ongoing pain in my right shoulder/arm and neck for 4 years and am concerned that i may be left like this in my lower limbs too.
Any advice would be really appreciated. X
