    I have all three as well! It takes a lot of self advocacy. My fibro is a million times better now, so if you have any questions or just want to talk feel free to message me :)

      thank you so much. I struggle with the fibro pain/exhaustion and my doctor just keeps upping the gabapentin. I struggle with my mental health and feel so lonely at times.

        ugh yep sounds super familiar!! It’s challenging. Gabapentin didn’t work for me but I know it helps a lot of people!

    My gp doesn't support my care with my autoimmune conditions. I go to a rheumatologist to manage my fibro. He does a much better job simply because he knows more and it's part of his specialty. My health has improved since going to specialist

    Sorry you are not getting the support you need from your doctor as well. I have GAD and was recently diagnosed with fibro. Feel free to message me if you like.

    I have found that Lyrica (pregabalin) helps ease my Fibromyalgia symptoms. I take 75mg twice a day

    I have all three as well as others and I was in gabapentin for many years and my pain mgmt doctor has now started me in Lyrica and it's made a huge improvement in my pain levels. I'm still titrating up, but I'm not in the amount of pain I've been in every single winter previously. How much gabapentin do you take a day?
