    Hi, I'm new to this board, I'm looking for some support. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but my new doctor isn't sure it's that since I'm only 25. I am in intense pain a lot of the time, and I'm on lyrica and cymbalta, neither of which seems to work that well. The lyrica has made me gain 15 pounds and I'm heavier than I've ever been in my entire life, which adds to psychological and physical strain. I just got a job which I like, but I have to be on my feet all day long and basically ignore my pain and crash when I get home.

    Any suggestions? I guess I am relatively new to this so I don't know as much about what to do when the pain is really bad (like now). I have vicodin but I don't like to take it because it makes me nausous and it didn't even help last time I took it.

    thanks...
