fibromyalgia

I have had fibromyalgia for a few years now. My mom also has it. I have been taking Vioxx for a few years and it has been working. But, now i've been having more pain. Especially when the weather changes like right before it rains. My doctor has now started me on Neurontin. I take it three times a day. It is not a drug specifically for fibromyalgia but it has been used to manage pain. It really works. I still have pain occasionally in my legs, but nothing like I was having before. I've also told my mom about it and she is taking it. Maybe you could ask your doctor about it? I've noticed that getting the proper amount of sleep really helps also. Good luck.
