Does anyone have the burning sensation and aching "to the bone"?

I have been on anti-inflammatories, neurontin and pain meds for years, however when a flareup occurs- the pain is deabilitating! I al so have meds for sleep that work with the pain. Thanks!

Hi, Terri.schekman,

Welcome back to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. Here are some treatments that might help in treating Fibromyalgia.
Analgesics. Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) may ease the pain and stiffness caused by fibromyalgia. However, its effectiveness varies. Tramadol (Ultram) is a prescription pain reliever that may be taken with or without acetaminophen. Your doctor may recommend nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) — such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) or naproxen sodium (Aleve, others) — in conjunction with other medications.
Antidepressants. Duloxetine (Cymbalta) and milnacipran (Savella) may help ease the pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. Your doctor may prescribe amitriptyline or fluoxetine (Prozac) to help promote sleep.
Anti-seizure drugs. Medications designed to treat epilepsy are often useful in reducing certain types of pain. Gabapentin (Neurontin) is sometimes helpful in reducing fibromyalgia symptoms, while pregabalin (Lyrica) was the first drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat fibromyalgia.
Therapy;Talking with a counselor can help strengthen your belief in your abilities and teach you strategies for dealing with stressful situations.
