My wife had progressive Secondary MS and symptons are SO much the same. They actually told her she had Fibro for 10 years until she lost vision in one eye and then confirmed MS. OK, some medications for fibro are the same as those for MS, BUT their are drugs specific for MS. They are more agressive. I saw a big difference when my wife took her monthly Soly drip. Do your research very agressively on meds for MS, cause they can be life threatening, I know becuase one I can't mention here took her life.
I am on almost all meds that are used for Fibro - ms is an autoimmune disease effecting your nerves, Fibro is overactive nerves causing widespread pain. My meds only have a few differences and that's in dosages - Lyrica and for ms I have Baclofen which I think would help Fibro patients as well. I was on all the same meds before diagnosed with ms and 6 years later Fibro -- 15 years as a walking pharmaceutical and now I figure out diet and specific exercise (physical therapy and swimming) has been the biggest of benefits
