I had been feeling it for a while and it slowly had gotten worse. So I went to my doctor and they gave me the diagnosis. So she has me on Gabapentin 600 twice a DAY .
Seems to work ok and help me t sleep as well
Anyone else using Gabapentin for their fibromyalgia?

Oh it's real and it's awful. I have been diagnosed with Fibro as well. Well, one dr thinks its CRPS and another one thinks it's Fibro but at the end of the day, I am in pain 24/7. Somedays it can be 10 on the pain scale and other days it can be 4-5ish. I am or have been at some time on a different concotion of meds - cymbalta, lycrica, gabepentin, flexiril, zolpicone, etc for all the symptons but nothing really helps the pain. Can't make my limbs work some days, and my husband has to help me to the loo. Just a year prior, I had hiked down and back up the Grand Canyon just to give you an example of what my fitness level used to be.
Cymbalta is the devil itself. Dangerous stuff.
I am going to be trying some medical mj soon. Well, medical for my use. The strain I will be trying is supposed to help alot with pain without the physcosis. Wish me luck.

I've heard of Lugol's and due to your personal testimony, I will be ordering it tomorrow. Did you have sleep issues and if so did the Lugol's help that issue? Honestly, I have just about given up. If it helps even just one of my symptoms it will be worth it. After I was diagnosed, I googled Fibromyalgia because I worked in the medical field and had always been told that it was a crap diagnosis. I had no opinion on it until I was diagnosed. I was shocked at the symptoms that I had. I had every symptom to some degree. Some more so than others. To describe it as debilitating is an understatement. Thanks for the tip.
