Brief Answer: It needs combined approach to treat fibro. Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. Fibromyalgia can not be totally cured, you can only minimise symptoms by taking various medications. As you can take amitryptiline and duloxetin or you can start Lyrica (pregabalin) consulting you’re treating doctor. Exercises and stretches plays important role in maintaining symptoms of fibromyalgia. Physiotherapy like ultrasound and tens will help, along with knee exercises. A holistic approach is required, which includes exercises, meditation, SKY [sudarshan XXXXXXX yoga] and acupuncture along with healthy diet and herbs. Hope this answers your query.
