I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I am always in pain. I try to do things like excercise in my pool, music therapy, reading , things to take my mind off it. Sometimes it works. I am on 600mgs of Gabapentin daily and it helps with the throbbing pain. But I still have the pain on the sides of elbows, hips, knees, and collarbone area. Is this common? Sometimes I feel so all alone. My husband doesn't understand. He thinks by excercising the pain and stiffness will go away. I try to do my daily household duties, but I get so tired (very tired) and my body hurts, sometimes I can't finish. There are days where I just want to sit and cry. Does anyone else feel this way? And how can I get my husband to understand?
