God Bless you & your daughter. Fibromyalgia is hard to treat. I do not have mental health issues with mine, but, I know many people that do with Fibro. Pain & fatigue are wearing. Here is what helps my pain the most:
1) Stretches in the morning
2) Espsom salt bath soaks for sore muscles
3) Massages if she can stand it
4) Flexeril 5 mg (Prescription) muscle relaxant as needed
5) Voltaren Gel applied at least 4 times a day and Bed Buddy heat packs (Amazon)
6) Get off sugar & caffeine & junk food.
7) Try and keep moving as much as you can or she will get stiffer and hurt worse.
8) Try and get her into a pain clinic which could help with her pain and depression.
9) If she needs to nap, let her. Sleep is healing and restorative sleep helps greatly with Fibro. That is the #1 complaint of a fibro patient, "I don't sleep well" or "I am a light sleeper."
Praying for much relief.
