    I have been seeing a pain management doctor for 3 years.
    When I told him I had FM in Jan, he put me on Lyrica for pain. My rheumatologist also put me on Cymbalta. I take 75mg of Lyrica twice a day along with percocet. Sometimes you need combinations of meds for any relief. My rheumatologist said I must continue to see the pain specialist. One handles the pain, the other the FM. The Lyrica helps to ease the pain along with the others.
