Thank you very much for your input.

Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by pain. stiffness and tenderness of muscles.
Standard NSAIDS normally don't work efficiently in this condition.The best treatment for fibromyalgia is light exercise, stress reduction , avoidance from caffeine and alcohol etc.Along with that , some antidepressants like Prozac, Elavil and sinequan have good results.Cymbalta and Savella are two drugs that increase certain brain neurotransmitters activity and hence relieve stress and fibromyalgia.A local cortisone injection , use of LYRICA , and felxeril have shown promising results.For a detailed review for treatment modalities , please visit this link.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
