    Hi. Along with many other symptoms, I've got generalized pain in every muscle and joint of my body which I experience for lapses of a few ours, usually along with an increase in fatigue. Analgesics don't work at all, nor do any of the more advanced pain relieving drugs like pregabalin for example. The weird thing is that since I got sick 12 years ago, drinking coffee significantly reduces my pain for considerable time. Does anybody else experience this or has any explanation as to why this happens? Thank you, good bye

    Yes, coffee reduces my pain, but not for very long. It's not that surprising--caffeine is an ingredient in a number of analgesics, especially for headaches. My mother used to drink coffee for migraines.
