Three days ago I was officially diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. However I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and a bulging disc at L4 -L5. I have taken Gabapetin for years and it used to help with my pain, but is not the case anymore. I am on a cocktail of meds including Enbrel which is currently not helping with symptoms anymore after 3 years of relieving the RA. This past year I have been in agony with pain. Cymbalta was tried and caused scary side effects. I had to stop it after 4 days.
At my appointment the other day my NP added Celebrex for pain, discontinued the Enbrel, and prescribed Orencia instead. After researching those meds, including Gabapentin, I realized that none of them actually treat the Fibromyalgia...only the RA and nerve pain.
I am wondering how Lyrics works for Fibromyalgia, and if anyone was ever prescribed Gabapentin for it? Which one worked better? What side effects did anyone get with Lyrics?
