In brief: No.

Fibromyagia is not an inflammatory disease.
If it helps, you may have another diagnosis, another type of arthritis. Half my pfs patients ultimately are found to have another problem.

In brief: Temporarily

You may feel better for a short time but it is not a good treatment long term. The only proven treatment for fibromyalgia is a regular exercise program that consists of aerobic activity.
