Hello, I have just been diagnosed this week with EDS hypermobility syndrome and fibromyalgia. I don't really know what to do to help the pain I'm getting with this. I was on cocodemol and tramadol but it seems to have made me ill and I can't concentrate. I have now got lydocaine patches. They seem to work ok for my back but they come off and I can only wear three at once and its only in a localised area so it doesn't do anything for all of my muscles that are currently in pain.

Really struggling.
