Fibromyalgia: Who was diagnosed with this?

I was diagnosed today with it after a blood work ruled all the other things out. I had Lyme disease in 2010 & was treated for it. Ever since then, I have had horrible muscle aches that can be excruciating at times. I dismissed it thinking it will go away eventually on its own. The pain got worse over the years that it was hard for me to walk up the stairs or do laundry. The Dr prescribed me lyrica & I'm hoping lyrica will help me feel better. What was your symptoms for fibromyalgia like? How did you managed your pains? Any special diets to go on to manage the pains? Sorry for the questions lol

Thanks. I'm fortunate to have a Dr who listens to me.
