... didn't work, now I go for triger point injections every few months, he now has me on sintement. it doesn't work but he want put me on anything else, I am gaining weight because it hurts to bad to exercise. what can I take to help with the pain and Weight gain?
I wish there was something to take for that, the person who comes up with it will be rich. I take gabapentin and effexor for it, plus I get the shots too. Opiates don't help fibro much. The gabapentin helps allot more then lyrica did. Your dr is on the right track with the sinemet, from the research I've been doing. Supposedly we lack dopamine too, and sinemet would increase this. Maybe another med similar too it but not sinemet would help you. The emsam patch has helped some people.
