I was diagnosed with M.E about 13 years ago, but in the last 3 years I have started to suffer from upper back pain and also a pain in my thumb. The back pain is so bad it is waking me up in the middle of the night. I was told a few years ago that I probably have fibromyalgia, so I am not sure 100% if it is or it isn't as I dont seem to have the tender points typical, but more an all over muscle pain in my back.
I have tried pregablin, doesn't work and also causes me memory problems. I have also tried amitriptyline, which caused me extreme tiredness in a morning. So I was wondering what other people are taking, I have looked at prozac and also the newer SNRI's but just wanted to know what peoples experience of them was, did it help your pain? and also did you have side effects? I would like something that gives me a bit more energy if possible.
