User avatar Dear dimeless,

first of all you have to know that there is not a single medication that makes you free of pain. fisrt priority: get more informations about FMS. second priority: make sports and take a warm bath as often as you can if it makes you feel good. thrird priority: amitryptilin may be of benefit, although it is unikely that it makes you free of pain in total.
