Essentially chronic: Fibro is a chronic condition affecting the central nervous system. The best known therapy is exercise and cognitive training. Pool or warm water is enjoyed by many patients. Some medications such as Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Savella (milnacipran) can help but should not be considered as solo therapy. Cognitive training, CBT, ACT, and Biofeedback can be very essential to learn to cope and manage these symptoms.
