Hi all, I'm new to this site and apologies if this question has already been covered. I'm trying to find a medication that works for me. I've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 18 months and think the onset was as a result of having contracted shingles, though cannot be certain. I've been taking prescription strength Co-codamol and Naproxen which seem to take the edge off the pain. However my GP doesn't want me taking Naproxen much longer due to it affecting the lining of the stomach and kidneys.
I've been doing some research on the web(as you do) and have found that Pregabalin is one of the medications suggested. Has anyone any experience of this medicine and if so does it work?
Also read any American article which stated that they think fibromyalgia may be linked to having too many nerves fibres in the palms.
I wish someone would hurry up and find some answers to this debilitating, painful and life destroying condition!!
Look forward to reading your thoughts.
