... my right side. I am taking 3 Lyrica tabs plus 1 cymbalta tab daily, but they are not helping, has anyone got a suggestion?
Have you tried Neurontin (or Gabapentin - generic name) instead of Lyrica?
It is the sister-drug of Lyrica, but works sometimes when lyrica does not.
There also are narcotic type medications such as Hydrocodone, or Oxycodone that may help with the pain, they can be addictive, yet your pain sounds bad enough to warrant the use of one of these medications.
How long have you been taking the medications? Those need some time to go into effect. Contact your doctor's office and tell them that the pills aren't working and that you need more relief.
How long ago did you have the stroke? What kind of stroke was it? I had a stroke 3 plus years ago and still suffer from pain and disabilities from it, although not the heat problem. Why do you think that the cause is fibromyalgia when it is due to your stroke?
