I have heard that neck problems or injuries are the most common reason you develop Fybro....When I was 20 years old, I came down with a severe case of mono and I have not been the same since...I started getting terrible neck problems. After my first neck surgery, Fybro set in...I have been on Vicodin and muscle relaxers for over 11 years.....I just had my second neck surgery at 30 years old and my fybro is worse than ever. However the doctor thinks the symptoms will calm down after a while...it's just soooooooooo hard living with his. I am so young and want to do so many things in life, but because of fybro I can't do many of the things I want to do. The pain is mostly in my neck and shoulder blades and my face and head get extremely tight...My aunt has a very bad case of fybro and she started taking Lyrica about a year ago and it has DRASTICALLY changed her life. Has anyone else taken it??? Lori I am a newbie here!!!!!!!!!
