The only thing that has ever worked for the headaches is Topamax. Some docs don’t seem to even know or care what it is. Research it and educate them. As for the fibro pain, I don’t feel the small pain benefit is worth the side effects. If you are part of Mayo, ask your doc to refer you to the Fibromyalgia Pain Clinic. They teach you how to react to the pain. It’s not like the pain is ever going to go away, so we may as well figure out how to stop curling up in a ball when it comes. I’m learning to breathe and move when it comes. Sounds weird and stupid, I know. But it works and takes the edge off. I recommend it. I don’t have the option of quitting my job and moving to somewhere warm and tropical. Flat down in bed makes it worse.
