HelloYou have not had any of the approved medical treatments for your condition.These arecymbaltaSavellaLyricaThey are all different and all have more evidence than the meds you have had.I suggest you see a rheumatologist, or a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor , or both. As far as alternative therapies, acupuncture has shown more benefit than those you have tried, as has biofeedback. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily
