    I'm new here. I've recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I know that there is a lot of pain associated with this problem but I'm wondering just how much? I'm at the point where I can't even lift me hand to scratch my head. It hurts very bad and I can tolerate pain...a lot of pain. This goes on with my arms, hands legs and etc. I'm sure that somebody on here has or had the same problem. What do you do to get it to stop? My Dr. put me on Cymbalta. Most of the time I get some relief. When I have a full blow up I can barely make it to the bathroom the pain is so bad

    Welcome. There are Fibro people that usually answer on this Health board. There is also the Fibromyalgia Board here that has really good people with multiple resources to help you and that's a good place to post.

    If you don't get the answer that helps you, call your Fibro doctor tomorrow morning and leave a message with his receptionist and explain you're in so much pain you can't even lift your hand. Take care.
