I would love to hear what other fibro/CFS patients are doing for pain relief. My meds aren't cutting it as much anymore. As previously noted, I'm on Cymbalta which I know that without I'd be worse off. But I recently returned to work on a work trial and my pain levels have shot up. I can't up my Cymbalta because I'm already taking the maximum dosage.

I just would like to hear other's ideas. I do have a TENS unit but it doesn't work if it is all-over body aches, tenderness and soreness. It's better on a specific spot with acute pain.

So far I spend a lot of time taking hot baths as that seems to get my muscles to relax.

Thanks for listening (and maybe responding!)

not non-medicinal, but have you discussed lyrica with your doctor? That is the only thing that works for me.

I found the Melt Method by Sue Hitzmann, and like the relief I get from using the balls with my hands and feet. Total body changes in this simple treatment, and with regular (like daily) work, I can do more.
