It varies with the patient.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I will like to tell you that Fibromyalgia takes at least 3 months to come under control. But it can't be generalized.. It varies from patient to patient. The mainstay of treatment is pain neuromodulators like amitryptylline, duloxetine etc. For your pain relief you can take paracetamol till the time other medications get control of disease.

Take care.

Dr Shruti.
