    Hi Vanessa,

    The pain is probably the worst aspect of fibro as we all know and it can be unique and frequently changing in all of us. It takes trial and error before you find the right (or best) combination for you. I would say speak to your doctor and involve him/her in advising but don't be afraid to suggest things yourself (it's your body and you know it best) or say when things are not working for you. A lot of people end up with a combination of anti-depressants and painkillers which seem to help to varying extents. At the moment I am on co-codamol and Oramorph and also Citalopram but I still get pain at times, although I do think they help a bit. Hoping you will find the right combination to help your pain,

    Hi Vanessa, I would also suggest asking your GP to refer you to a pain clinic at your local hospital. My pain clinic runs Fibromyalgia Courses. I'm not sure exactly what they involve, as I haven't been yet, but it's worth a thought! I take Pregabalin, Tramadol & cocodamol for pain. And find heat helpful eg hot baths, hot water bottles etc. Good luck. xx
