You are right medication can't be the only way to relieve pain. I have what I call my bag of tools and I just go right down the list till I get some type of relief. I don't suffer from Fibro but from Traumatic Brain Injury ( TBI ). I am finding that most of us have received a diagnosis after suffering for years with unexplained Pain. After my last traumatic brain injury I started having severe migraines and with that came neck and back + leg pain. Other neurologic symptoms have occurred but I have yet to get a specialist to treat and put a name to them. So for now I have TBI/PTSD determination from tests.
