    Hi, just joined this group, thought I would introduce myself, I'm Sue and have had FM for 8 years, I am so tired of hurting. Have tried numerous drugs, but they only work for a while. Was reading on the internet about this new drug called pregabalin, it sounds promising but won't be on the market until next year. Has anyone out there heard of it? Thanks

    glad you found this board, it's great support.

    If you want to know whether people here have heard about pregabalin (I haven't), you may want to write a new post with something like 'have you heard of pregabalin' as title, then the right people are more likely to take notice of it.

    Welcome to the board. I was diagnosed with FM, but either I really didn't have it, or it was due to things like a low thyroid and/or bacteria/yeast overgrowth, which have been corrected, and thus I don't have the pain anymore. However, I do have CFS, which has improved greatly.

    I am not familiar with the medication you mentioned, but I did want to recommend somethings for you. Be sure to check out the tabs at the top of the page. Both the "Home" tab and the "Libary" tap have great information on dealing with FM through diet, supplements, medications, therapies, etc. You'll find that this site has some of the most up-to-date research availavle anywhere, including links to other sites as well as books. So, you'll definately want to get to know those two areas of this site, which I mentioned. I'm sure you'll get some great advice from your fellow FM sufferers, too.

    Again, welcome to the board,
    Annette
