Hi Beachgirl there is a HealthUnlocked forum Fibromyalgia Action UK that might get you more replies to your question. Have you asked there? 😊
Kitty's suggestion is a good one - I have both conditions and belong to both forums. Everyone is nice and helpful on FMA UK.
I was prescribed amitriptyline. It's often the first drug they try you out on. While it didn't really help me, I know it has helped lots of other people with fibro.
Many of the things you do for RA - like gentle exercise and eating well - are also helpful for fibro. So you will have a head start on that at least!
Take care x
