I've had Fibro for over 8 years and have found March/April and Oct/Novemebr are the worst months. Right now the flare up is so bad I feel like I'm walking with broken feet, can't hold a cup of coffee without excruiating pain, my hands, wrist, shoulders, neck, knees and feet hurt so bad. I just want something to make it stop so I can function. I haven't been taking the Cymbalta since I ran out, and being without insurance right now, it's really hard to figure out what to take. I have never had a flare up this bad, this painful, does Savella give relief immediately?? ANything else to take for this?????? Nothing that makes you gain weight, make you tired, I'm fighting that right now by not being able to do anything.
