I have had Fibromyalgia for so long that I can barely remember my life as being "normal". I will not try this new medication, as I have already tried Cymbalta and Lyrica with no improvement. The one thing I found that worked were massages specifically for the muscles, where most of us find (I know I do) knots caused by the illness. My only problem with receiving massages was that my wonderful insurance company (UHC) will not pay for a massage, even with my physician's order. We were paying out of pocket at $400/month. As most of you know, that figure can only go so far and then it ends because of the expense. I hurt all day, every day. My wish is for all the nay-sayers on Fibromaylgia to feel my pain for 72 hours, they would not be so fast to judge and say it doesn't exist. I lost my job of 20+ years to this illness, but I will not let it ruin my life. Each day, I am living with the pain and praying that one day someone gets it right and finds a way to make it all go away. If we could all just have one month of normal living, every once in a while.
