I'm 21 and I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia when I was 14. I tried various methods of treatment for the pain and lack of energy such as exercise, physical therapy, chiropatractic, natrual supplements, and blah blah blah blah. Well nothing helped but physical therapy but that isn't covered by insurance forever so at 17 I had to quit and now I'm on different insurance so it's "pre-existing". So i can't do that.
Well the doctor suggested gabapentin, the generic of lyrica. Just wanted to know other experiences with the drug. I'm nervous about being on a medication (i have reactions to alot of stuff). I just started it today. Just wondering if it helped you? And when it started helping?
