Unfortunately it seems as if they do come togather as a package deal also I was told I had althralgia which to me seems to fit the fibro description, I explain it to others as feeling like arthritis in my muscles, it seems to explain enough to not generate any more questions.:rolleyes:
Anyway alot of rheumys will treat it with the lupus if certain trigger points are present that define the disorder/condition/pain in the neck!!:(
I am being treated for the fibro wth the drug lyrica it is pricey and honestly because I am in so much pain and fatigue with the lupus I really don't know if it actually works, my doc did give me a RX for neurotin which is a different formula for the drug lyrica I need to talk with her about any withdrawal effects and mixing the 2 drugs together what there side effects will be.:unsure:

Anyway talk with your doctor about it and see if you fit the profile for fibro and then maybe they can suggest treatment options, I hope things go well for you and that you feel better!!:)
