I am sorry that you are suffering from Fibromyalgia.

Yes, it is possible for the FM to cause this excess pain and swelling for 3 days. Please take over the counter analgesics like Tylenol as and when required for pain. Adequate bed rest is must.

SSRIs, Amytryptilline, Duloxetine, Gabapentin and milnacipran have been shown to be effective in FM.

Wish you quick recovery.

Take care.
