Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

It seems you have tried all the painkillers and anti-seizure medications which have not been of much benefit for your burning sensation. Therefore I would suggest consulting your doctor about Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) which may be beneficial for such type of pain. You may try this medication and I am certain that this will be beneficial for this symptom. It will also help ease the pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia.

Take care.

It is a privilege answering your question.

Thank you.
