  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Had fibromyalgia diagnosed when I was 18, 15 years ago. But it had been there since I was at least 12 years old in minimal isolated forms.
    Had meningitis at 4year old and was in coma for 3 days. Developed sleeping and behaviour problems immediately following that.
    Savella has been a life-saver. Only side-effect is excessive sweating from head. First 2 weeks caused nausea and dizziness, but it all went away.

    Pain medication used now is not daily but according to flare-ups of fibromyalgia in specific parts of the body.
    I've had chronic shoulder, back and hip pain for months now, and I'm using those meds (codeine, Tramadol, Robaxacet) due to that. Codeine and Tramadol only if really acute.
    Naproxen used for migraines (muscular) and now for back pain inflammation.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I have suffered with fibromyalgia since my early thirties and it has contnued to get more severe. Doctors have tried several different drugs but nothing can elleviate the pain some make it just more bearable. I am now suffering with lower back and right side pain and what the doctor says is spasms. The doctor has put me on diazapam for short term to help this. It makes it slightly easier but I am still having severe difficulty walking etc without the back/side pain on top of the other pain and problems of fibromyalgia.
