I am a 31-year-old female, height 5'3" and 311 lbs. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and also small fiber neuropathy in my hands and feet. I am currently on Gabapentin, Duloxetine, and Meloxicam for my condition. The pain is keeping me up at night and I do not sleep well. Also I cannot stand on my feet for more than 10 minutes before I am in excruciating pain. I have recently started a vegetarian diet and a meditation practice too. Please help.
