I have multiple sclerosis as well as MS. In checking out an Internet source of information about MS, I came across a site offering both text and audio versions of an interview with a neurologist regarding pain and MS. As I read the interview, I realized that a lot of what she was saying applied to fibromyalgia as well. (In fact, the doctor even mentions fibromyalgia at one point.) Much of this information already may be familiar to people who have had fibro for a long time, but I thought at least some people on this board might find the interview worthwhile. Among other things, Dr. Lucas discusses some pain medications (including Neurontin) and the difference between pain pills and pain blockers. She also makes the distinction between physical dependence on medication and addiction (which she points out is psychological rather than physical). If you are interested, do a Google Search using the words "MSTalk page 7" (without the quotation marks). --Laura R.M.
