I'm assuming you originally began using this drug for menstrual or uterus problems. If it were me, I would see my MD and ask for another drug for your original problem plus pain medication for fibromyalgia. I have severe nerve pain in my lower body but I haven't progressed to fibromyalgia yet. From what I know of it, you're likely in worse pain than me, and the only thing I ever found that made the nerve pain bearable was a large dose of Oxycontin, a strong narcotic. The problem, of course, is that the body acclimates to the narcotic and one needs more of the drug to attain the same relief. When this occurs, it's time to start a different type of pain pill while weaning off of the particular narcotic you may be on. Sad to say, as far as I know, there isn't a cure for fibromyalgia, but you may find some relief thru drugs and/or a pain management program. Your GP should be able to connect you with a decent pain management program if there's a medium to large sized city within reasonable distance from where you live. Good luck.
