I have fibromyalgia what would you recommend for acute flare ups (once a month for a couple days)? Been on lyrica, (pregabalin) neurotin and cymbalta before.

In brief: See details

There is no one best answer. One would need to review the doses of the previous meds you took to determine if any should be restarted.
Exercise may help. Some fm patients also believe acupuncture helps acute flares.
