In brief: Exercise and Meds
Exercise is the number one proven treatment for fibro.
It must be gentle but daily aerobic exercise. There are now 3 medications approved for the treatment of fibromyalgia-savella, Cymbalta and lyrica (pregabalin). Since these require a prescription, i recommend you see your doctor for further evaluation and treatment. Good luck-there is hope!
