Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HCM

Lyrica is pregabalin and it helps in improving neurological symptoms of fibromyalgia. You are having multiple somatic complaints, crying spells and uncontrolled pain and these are the symptoms of depression. I would advise you to consult a Psychiatrist for expert management. Medicines like Duloxetine are very useful in depression with pain conditions and associated with fibromyalgia. Try relaxation exercises like yoga, breathing exercises for relaxation.

Thanks, Hope this helps you.
