Fibromyalgia Diagnosis Confirmed

I am hoping the fact that researchers have found a physical cause means it's ok to come out of the Fibro closet now. See this: http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/steps-authentic-happiness-positive-psychology/2013/dec/29/fibromyalgia-solved-pathology-not-mind/

Unfortunately, the bulk of Fibro inspired drugs are not available to me for a variety of reasons. I asked about Lyrica and was told it's so close to gabapentin that since I had a bad reaction to the one, I'd probably also not be able to tolerate the other.

I'm hoping the new research leads to other therapies or medicines. In any event it's better to KNOW.
