Hello. Thank you for your message.

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.

Anti-epileptic drugs slow down nerve signals from the muscles to the brain and help with muscle spasms and pain. Lyrica is the FDA-approved drug for fibromyalgia, but doctors can also prescribe Neurontin.
